Tickets for Bonnaroo are available now exclusively via www.bonnaroo.com/tickets.

The complete Bonnaroo 2022 schedule (presented by BACARDÍ®,) is available now online and via the official Bonnaroo mobile app, available for iOS on the App Store and for Android at Google Play. Fans can create their own custom schedule and check out goings on Around The Farm (including an array of activities and activations), along with additional info, an interactive site map, complete details about JamTrak (powered by Allegiant), links to social media, and more.
Among Bonnaroo’s greatest traditions is the annual SuperJam, gathering an all-star lineup for a once-in-a-lifetime musical event unlike any other. Set for Saturday, June 18 in the This Tent, SuperJam: Jack Antonoff’s 1984 is anticipated to be among the biggest and best ever, celebrating what is without question one of the most momentous years in pop music history.
“I was born in 1984,” the 6x GRAMMY® Award-winning musician/producer/songwriter recently told The What Podcast. “It’s one of these crazy weird years in music where there was just this amazing cross-section of things happening, all these different genres hitting the world at the same time. We have all these insane special guests and we’re going to play a ton of music from that year. It’s going to be really special!”
Bonnaroo 2022 will also see festivities continuing throughout the night with a stacked After-Hours lineup performing in Centeroo on the main stages and tents starting at 12:00 pm (midnight) or later. After Hours artists include Illenium, Goose, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Denzel Curry, Flume, 100 gecs, Marc Rebillet, Sons of Kemet, Sidepiece, Role Model, Goth Babe, Andy Frasco & The UN, VNSSA, Lane 8, LP Giobbi, Chris Lake, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Nora En Pure, and more, along with dance parties, parades, secret shows, and much more.
The forecast is looking hot, we encourage Bonnaroovians to follow the Bonnaroovian code for a fun weekend. Fans should come equipped with a reusable water bottle to refill at free hydrations stations all weekend long, wear light clothing and hats, use plenty of sunscreen, bring battery-powered personal fans, grab a pop-up canopy tent for campsites and remember to take breaks in the shade regularly and get plenty of rest. Bonnaroovians will find more shade, misting, and cooling solutions throughout Centeroo and at every Plaza than ever before, and should take advantage of the fun ways to cool off such as a walk through Where In The Woods, a ride on the Big Ass Water Slide and a fresh cool-off at the Bonnaroo Fountain.
As always, Bonnaroo will boast a delectable and delicious assembling of food and drink vendors, showcasing a myriad of options – from kabobs, corndogs, and coffee to BBQ, burritos, and beyond – sure to please even the most discerning omnivore or vegan palate. A complete list of Bonnaroo 2022 Food Vendors is available HERE.
In addition, a wide-ranging village market of local vendors will also be on hand, presenting handmade products, unique crafts, fine art, and special demonstrations. A full list of craft vendors can be found HERE.
Set for Saturday, June 18, the Eighth 1st Annual Roo Runs on Dunkin’ 5k invites all Bonnaroo Attendees to run across the Farm with all proceeds supporting the Bonnaroo Works Fund. Bonnaroovians can gear up for their run with custom sweatbands, t-shirts, and other Roo Runs on Dunkin’ swag, with costumes, creativity, and flair of all kinds encouraged. Ribbons will be awarded to top finishers and medals presented for a variety of victories. In addition, Roo Runs on Dunkin’ 5k tank tops will be distributed and all finishers will get to cool down with Dunkin’ Iced Coffee and Munchkins after crossing the finish line. Athletic shoes are required. Sign-ups and additional details are available now HERE.
Bonnaroo Attendees will be able to make their way around the Farm via JamTrak (powered by Allegiant), a convenient and free transportation option running throughout the campground, available all day and night, with multiple routes and stops along the way. JamTrak works much like any big-city bus or subway system, driving on a predetermined route and allowing riders to hop on or off only at designated locations. JamTrak stops will be positioned to provide the most help to campsites and plazas furthest from Centeroo. Complete information and a detailed transit map can be viewed HERE.
Bonnaroo, in looking for new ways to educate and inspire positive change, has once again affirmed its place as a leader in social innovation with Planet Roo’s non-profit partners and programming. Curated by the Bonnaroo Works Fund, Planet Roo is a haven for award-winning sustainability and global consciousness where patrons can explore non-profits, come together for classes, workshops at The Academy and Learning Garden, or panels at The How Stage to listen to thought-provoking interviews and learn how to change the world. This year, Bonnaroovians can register their wristbands with @turn for a chance to win exclusive prizes, such as VIP Ticket upgrades, festival cash, and more by dropping their drinking cups in the TURN Bins located throughout The Farm.
Hulu is the Official Streaming Destination of Bonnaroo 2022. Beginning June 16th through June 19th, Hulu on-demand subscribers will be able to tune into the exclusive livestream at no additional cost. Tune in at https://www.hulu.com/
