The small town of Manchester, Tennessee is in the final stages of preparing for the annual Bonnaroo Music Festival.
“Bonnaroovians” are flocking from all corners of the United States — and the world — to spend four days hanging out, listening music and taking in the experience.
2016 marks the 15-year anniversary of the festival’s art, and is labeled “15 Years of Magic.”
The festival offers more than enjoyment; the schedule is packed full of alternative activities like yoga, environment classes and there is even a 5k.
Before the festivities kick-off, hundreds of workers and volunteers come days to weeks in advance to prepare festival grounds.
New to the farm is major improvements to hygiene and sanitation. The festival has installed a permanent filtered-water main line, and bathroom buildings with flushable toilets and showers.
The Bonnaroo website reports that half of General Admission camping has permanent showers and a quarter of them are permanent.
Everything is in its place and ready to be the setting for days of fun, happiness and good vibes.
