After Initial Failure, the Bonnaroo Ticketing System is Back Up Today


  • Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival

Behemoth music and arts festival Bonnaroo is set to resume ticket sales on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 10 a.m. MST.

Tickets for the megafest went up for purchase last weekend, but the sale was quickly suspended after extreme demand caused the ticketing website to continually crash. This time around, organizers claim to have the technical issues worked out so that angsty concert-goers won’t have to spend all morning screaming at their computers.

Bonnaroo is one of the premier music and arts festivals in the United States. It happens every year on a giant, hot and dusty rural Tennessee farm. Each year, the fest draws approximately 100,000 attendees for a weekend of hedonic music ingestion.

This year’s line-up includes Radiohead, Phish, Bon Iver, Feist, The Roots, The Antlers, St. Vincent, Flying Lotus and many more.

Rolling Stone dubbed the fest one of the “50 moments that changed rock 'n' roll.” And CNN once described Bonnaroo as, “music and subculture melted together into a pot of creative bubbling energy.”

Now if only it wasn’t located 2,000 miles away.
