A weekend has been booked for the 10th annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN. The eclectic event will return to 650-acre host farm, Great Stage Park, for the milestone anniversary June 9-12.

The Bonnaroo 2011 lineup announcement is still a few months away, but public onsales for four-day festival tickets are just around the corner. The earliest round of presales opens to the public November 26 at 12 p.m. (EST).

The limited allotment is priced at $209.50, while supplies last. Once the initial allotment is sold, a second batch (also limited) will become available for the slightly higher price of $224.50. Fees for Bonnaroo 2011 four-day passes are $23.10 per ticket.

The presale ends at 11:59 p.m. (EST) on December 31, according to Bonnaroo’s official Web site.


Price increments are the same as those offered for Bonnaroo 2010 presales. Allotments for both price levels were sold well before the festival lineup was unveiled in February, leading to the announcement of a third pricing increment of $234.50, and a final ticket allotment priced at $249.50 per ticket.

Attendance for the festival, which launched in 2002, is usually in the ballpark of 70,000 to 80,000 people, according to published estimates. Early in its run, Bonnaroo reportedly drew more than 90,000 individuals to its Manchester base, though capacity has been capped around 80,000 in more recent years.

Since its founding, Bonnaroo’s artist billing has grown to include various genres of music, as well as comedy and arts. The usual lineup tally is just under 200 acts, the first of which are typically announced in late January or early February.
