Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment have announced the dates for the 12th annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Confirmed to take place June 13-16, 2013, the four-day festival will once again be held at the same 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn., 60 miles southeast of Nashville.
Special, limited ticket pre-sale information will be announced in November.
After yet another sell-out year in 2012 from what USA Today called "the godfather of American rock festivals," Bonnaroo organizers are once again back to the drawing board, ensuring that next year's event will have one of the most eclectic and striking lineups as well as the most diverse selection of entertainment options of any festival in the country. The breadth of the programming is consistently innovative and has become one of the key signature aspects of this legendary festival, whose uniquely open minded yet discerning and passionate community thrives on its intelligent diversity, officials said.
The festival is also now a force in the comedy world, as it has featured some of today's best talent and is now considered to be an essential play for every comedian both established and on the rise.
Until fans arrive back in Manchester, the next best thing to being there is the online experience at the festival's YouTube channel, Bonnaroo 365, where fans can tap into the Bonnaroo spirit all year long with specials like Jack White's surprise performance in the woods at Outside Lands to exclusive intimate performances backstage at Bonnaroo known as "The Hay Bale Sessions." From fans connecting directly with superstars like Fun. and Big Boi via "Fan Chat" to hearing incredible musicians like Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, "Tellin Stories" about the nerves before a first performance with Springsteen, Bonnaroo 365 is the destination for music performances and discoveries.
The Bonnaroo 2013 line up will be announced in February.
