Bonnaroo 2015 Dates Announced, Video Recap of This Year's Festival Released [WATCH]
It is never too early to start planning for Bonnaroo, so festival-goers mark your calendars for June 11-14, 2015. Also, a video recap of this year's festival has been released.
The lineup for the festival is usually revealed in February, Consequence of Sound points out, and tickets will be available around that time as well.
As USA Today notes, more than 90,000 people flocked to Manchester, Tennessee, for the 13th edition of Bonnaroo, which is one of today's premier festivals. Acts like Elton John, Kanye West, Jack White, Lionel Richie, Vampire Weekend, Skrillex, Arctic Monkeys and The Flaming Lips all stopped by The Farm this year.
"From a distance, the dozens upon dozens of options on hand at any given moment seem to provide an opportunity for happenstance, for spontaneity, for stumbling into something surprising," Paul Thompson wrote about the festival for Pitchfork. "But really, what most people want to do is sit around their tents and drink a few pre-noon beers, meet up with their friends, see the shows they were hoping to see, maybe grab a quesadilla. In 13 years, Bonnaroo's gone from a jam-heavy free-for-all to a slicker, more eclectic weekender."
In addition to the dates, the festival also released a video recap of this year's events, shot day-in-the-life style. It is tough to experience four days of Bonnaroo in five minutes, but this video just about sums it all up. Check it out below.
According to Bonnaroo's website, the festival started in 2002 and has continued to grow in popularity ever since. Its 2013 census revealed that 54 percent of its attendees were female and 41 percent were male, while 3 percent answered "irrelevant." Almost half of the people surveyed had been to the festival before.
