Although the eighth annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has not named any of its acts, ticket pre-sales for the four-day event begin on December 4 and end on December 31. Bonnaroo 2009 is set for June 11-14 and will once again be held on the 700-acre farm in Manchester, TN, 60 miles southeast of Nashville, TN.
During a special holiday pre-sale, a limited amount of general admission tickets will be available for $209.50 plus applicable fees. After these specially priced tickets are sold out, tickets will continue to be sold at the regular 2009 festival ticket prices of $224.50, then $234.50, and finally $249.50. Tickets will only be available at each price range while supplies last; all price ranges may not be available during our regular on-sale in late January/early February. Ticket fees are $23.10 per ticket, which includes a $6 facility fee, $3 contribution to Coffee County, $1 charity donation, and service fees.
In an unprecedented move, there is also a holiday pre-sale for a limited amount of general admission tickets available on a layaway plan, similar to the Stagecoach Festival, for five payments of $50 plus applicable fees. Payment plan ticket fees are $28.90 per ticket, which includes a $6 facility fee, $3 contribution to Coffee County, $1charity donation, and $5 payment plan fee ($1 per payment), and service fees.
A creative and cultural mega-success, Bonnaroo has featured a staggeringly diverse range of world-class acts over the last seven years, such as Bob Dylan, Metallica, Neil Young, Radiohead, Willie Nelson, The Police, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, James Brown, The White Stripes, The Dead, Regina Spektor, Widespread Panic, Death Cab For Cutie, and Elvis Costello, among so many others.
In recent years, Bonnaroo has also made an impact on the comedy circuit, with appearances by Chris Rock, Lewis Black, Flight of the Concords, David Cross, Fred Armisen, Zach Galifianakis, and Janeane Garofalo, among others.
