Bonnaroo is one of the biggest music festivals in the country and is held annually in Manchester, TN. This year’s lineup is incredible, and perhaps the deepest of any festival that we’ve seen in recent memory. Many will argue that it’s much better even than that of Coachella, which gets all of the publicity due to the sexier location (in California), but simply can’t hold a candle to this year’s Bonnaroo.
With an incredible lineup and reputation for being one of the best music festivals every year, fans who are looking to make it out always have plenty of questions before deciding to buy tickets, so we at TickPick have included important information about Bonnaroo in the blog below.

Bonnaroo 2019 Lineup

Headlining the first night of Bonnaroo will be “The show that made country music famous” in the Grand Ole Opry, which is the second straight year the festival will be showcasing some of the best rising country performers to satisfy what should be thousands of local country fans who will be making the trek out to Bonnaroo.
Friday’s lineup is perhaps the most diverse of all, with headliners Phish and Childish Gambino set to end the night with a bang. Gambino, aka Donald Glover, has already been announced as a headliner for Coachella, but we’re willing to bet that if fans had a choice to catch him at either festival, it’d be this one. Jam band Phish has been known to have one of the most hardcore fan bases of any music act, and rest assured that the people in charge of booking talent for Bonnaroo are aware of this fact. Be prepared to see a diverse array of Phish fans that could be well into their 60s jamming out next to festival goers who aren’t able to legally purchase a beer from a vendor.
Saturday’s lineup is headlined by rapper, singer, and songwriter Post Malone, who’s had perhaps the most successful run of any artist in 2018, rising to stardom on the heels of his recent album Beerbongs & Bentleys, and being featured in seemingly every single that’s being played on the radio right now. Odesza will be performing to satiate fans of electronic music. In general, they put on one of the best live performances of any act that can play a festival setting.
Phish will be performing their second set of the festival on Sunday night, truly capturing how large and die-hard of a fan base that they have, as they’ll be headlining over acts like The Lumineers and Cardi B, who has been a headliner in pretty much every festival at which she’s performed over the last year or so. For her to be on the ticket but not headlining is a testament of how deep this festival’s lineup is.

GA ticket or Vip ticket + nashville shuttle package – $190-305
The only single-day Bonnaroo ticket for sale, fans can purchase either a GA or VIP ticket that each include a roundtrip shuttle ticket to and from Nashville, including free parking in Nashville. If you’re only looking for a single-day ticket and happen to be coming from Nashville, this is definitely the best option for you.
Car Camping Pass – $59.75
Required for all festival attendees who are camping next to their cars, these passes are sold on a per car basis, not per person. Good for every car, truck, SUV, minivan or standard-sized vehicle.
RV Pass $250-795
Required for each RV to enter the campgrounds, and each RV space will be 20′ x 50′. Tents are allowable within these designated spaces if campers wish, and if you have a separate car to park with your RV, you would need a separate car camping pass and to have it arrive with the RV.
Day Parking Pass $39.75
This pass allows patrons a single parking space in the day parking lot, starting at 8am Thursday morning. Attendees may not sleep in their cars or camp next to their car.
More general Bonnaroo information to note:
- Bonnaroo campgrounds open at 8pm on Wednesday, June 12th and close at 12pm on Monday, June 17th. VIP campgrounds open at 7am on Thursday, June 13th.
- Anyone camping on festival grounds must have a festival pass. Camping spots not bought with a festival pass through Front Gate will not be valid.
- Camping spots are limited to 1 per order.
- There are shuttles available to and from Nashville, certain hotels, and the airport
- Keep in mind that if you end up with passes that you can’t use, you can always resell them here on TickPick.
Does Bonnaroo have single day tickets?
Most festivals only release full weekend passes – at first. As mentioned above, fans are given the option of purchasing a single-day ticket right from the get-go, but they will also be purchasing a Nashville shuttle package.
Once they sell out of all of their 4-day passes, Bonnaroo has typically released single day tickets for fans who are only looking to catch a single headliner. These single day passes hit the secondary market and do typically cost more than the price-per-day if you purchase the full weekend pass at once, but if you’re only looking to go for one day or can make it one day (or two, if you’re looking to catch both of Phish’s sets), it’s worth saving the money and going with the single day(s).
