Below are some of the highlights from the music festival announcement press release:
PLAZAS: Bonnaroo’s campground hubs of curated activities and convenience – known as Plazas – will return better than ever in 2022. Strategically located and well-lit public places throughout the campgrounds, Plazas include shade, free public Wi-Fi, charging stations, misting stations, showers, restrooms, medical and safety stations, information booths, and incredible programming for the fans.
JAMTRAK: This year’s Bonnaroo will see getting around the festival made easier and more convenient than ever before with the arrival of JamTrak, a free on-site transport system enabling attendees to easily travel day or night to and from Centeroo and the far away parts of the site.
STAGE IMPROVEMENTS: Bonnaroo 2022 will also see a number of stage improvements, including a spectacular production makeover for the festival’s second-biggest stage, The Which Stage. In addition, The Other Stage – Bonnaroo’s beloved home for electronic music – will now feature all-night performances and DJ sets through sunrise each day, along with spectacular new lighting, lasers, and surprises galore. Fans will also love the reinvention of the Silent Disco and the Who Stage, and even the What Stage has a special surprise in store.
CAMPING AND TENT OPTIONS: 2022 will also feature an assortment of improved camping options, including an updated campground layout allowing for more convenient camping closer to Centeroo. Bonnaroovians will have a new way to stay cool at this year’s festival with the introduction of Air-Conditioned Darkroom Tents, available for GA, GA+, and VIP ticket holders. All setup and ready to go upon arrival, each tent is completely opaque and comes with a choice of cot or inflatable bed, electric cooling unit, a souvenir blanket for each ticket holder, and more. This year will also see the introduction of Bonnaroo Daily Entry Camping Passes, a new system required for all vehicles and campers that will drastically cut wait times entering the festival site. GA ticket-buyers will be required to secure a vehicle pass by day for either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Weekend access from Thursday through Sunday. The earlier campers arrive, the closer they will camp in proximity to Centeroo. For more information please visit https://www.bonnaroo.com/accommodations.
VIP AND PLATINUM ENHANCEMENTS: Bonnaroo’s VIP and Platinum guests will also enjoy a large number of upgrades, including a new VIP campground layout providing direct entry into the venue, broader dining options, and upgraded shower facilities. Platinum patrons will enjoy the best campground and amenities on the entire site, all in a new shaded grove just south of Centeroo. Enjoy all the classic Platinum amenities plus a dedicated Platinum vehicle entrance off Campground Road, full-service RV spots, expanded food and beverage offerings, as well as a completely shaded and wooded campground with newly added access to the Artist Lounge. New this year is the addition of the VIP Day Parking Pass, which must be purchased with a VIP or Platinum Ticket. To learn more about VIP & Platinum, please see www.bonnaroo.com/premium.
