Bonnaroo! An annual four day music festival held on a 700 acre park in Manchester Tennessee, marks the beginning of the summer music festival season! Starting June 12th and ending the 15th, this is one festival you won't want to miss! Acts include a lined up such as Elton John, Jack White, The Flaming Lips and Artic Monkeys...not to mention a few friends of WYM such as Ben Folds, Umphrey's McGee, Slightly Stoopid, and the John Butler Trio. The main attractions of the festival are the multiple stages of live music, featuring a wide array of musical styles including indie rock, hip hop, jazz, americana, bluegrass, country music, folk, gospel, reggae, pop, and other alternative music. Needless to say, there is a little of something for everyone! In 2008, it was named "Best Festival" by Rolling Stone magazine, calling it "the ultimate over-the-top summer festival." Three days and four nights of non-stop music, comedy, light shows and entertainment. Bonnaroo is near and dear to our hearts here at WYM, for their Green efforts. They have been going Green for 13 years and diverted 366.37 tons of waste from the landfill in 2013! So grab your tents, your sunglasses, and rock a Wear Your Music Artist Bracelet from your favorite band or artist! And don't forget to visit the Clean Vibes Trading Post tent to check out some of our Rock Recycled Bracelets! While you're there, give them a big thumbsup for keeping it Green!
"We don’t just want to be the best festival. We aspire to be the greenest festival—and set the standard in sustainability and greening practices for North American concert events. To do so, we will engage fans, artists, the public, officials and even other festivals. Because of what’s at stake, we will gladly spend the extra effort and cost this sometimes involves. We believe our commitment to being sustainably green doesn’t hurt the Bonnaroo experience, but rather defines it and improves it. Who says you can’t have fun while changing the world?"
