Get Roo Ready For Bonnaroo 2017

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - by Patrick O'Hagan

It seems like it was only yesterday we were loading up camp and leaving The Farm, saying goodbye to friends we made during Bonnaroo 2016. But here we are again getting prepped for another great Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival experience.

With four days full of music, fun, and activities you want to make sure you’re prepared for anything that may come. For the thousands of campers that will be calling The Farm home during this time here’s a quick list of things to double-check and make sure you’ve got packed for Roo this year:

·       Camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, tarps, pillows, etc.)

·       Water (for drinking and washing)

·       Food, snacks, and drinks for the campsite (remember no glass)

·       Sunscreen (it’s usually hot and not much shade)

·       A hat (for the sun) and bandana (for the dust)

·       Rain gear (just in case)

·       Flashlights

·       Batteries and chargers

·       Bug spray

·       Extra shoes, clothes, etc.

·       Toiletries (TP, tissue, soap, deodorant, etc.)

·       First aid kit

Gates for general admission camping open at 8 pm tonight, if you want to get on-site and prepped in advance. The VIP/Platinum campgrounds will open at 7 am tomorrow (Thursday). 

The music officially kicks off Thursday afternoon and will run practically non-stop all through Sunday. Wristbands can still be purchased here if you haven’t already bought them. 

Coverage and photo galleries will be posted regularly throughout the festival. See you on The Farm!

Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: This Is Not A Drill

Last Saturday morning in paradise, at 8:07 to be precise, an alert appeared on every cell phone that read: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” I can envision no greater horror than having to ask myself how much time do I have, and what is the wisest way to spend it? It was a long and dreadful 38 minutes until the correction ... (click for more)
