Bonnaroo changed me. It wasn’t the music or the drugs. It was the people. The atmosphere. Everyone there is so lovely, so welcoming. So kind. You could be standing in line, the heat from the sun blaring down your back and sweat running down your face and someone will look you in the eye and tell you, “You are beautiful.”
Walking around the farm felt like a dream. Everything is so colorful and full of life. Bonnaroo itself is an oxymoron. The people come to find an escape, but end up freeing themselves as soon as they reach the famous arch. It’s a place were dreams live, and fear dies. Laughter plays higher than the music. Nakedness is embraced, and those who fight it are clothed in uniqueness. Everyone is welcome, and everyone calls it home. ♥
15 Years of Magic means 15 years of art! Beloved installations like The Arch, The Fountain, the venue walls and more bring the Bonnaroovian spirit to life in living color, creating a technicolor dream every June. Take a look at some of our history of art over the years!
