The Main Stages and Tent are where the magic happens! Rock out at the following:

What Stage – The biggest stage at Bonnaroo, with the iconic “Bonnaroo” neon sign on top.
Which Stage – Our second largest stage, located on the Southern edge of Centeroo.
This Tent – This Tent is waaaay too big to fit in your campsite. On the West side of Centeroo.
That Tent – That Tent is not for sleeping. Find it on the Northeast side of Centeroo
The Other – Once a tent, now a stage the size of “Which”, The Other is your go-to spot for electronic & hip-hop in the Northwest corner of Centeroo.

The Other is your place for electronic and hip-hop; Kalliope offers late night dancing until the wee hours, and music goes on and on at Silent Disco and Snake & Jake’s Christmas Club Barn. From all night listening parties to meditation and yoga workshops, there’s a whole lot going on at Bonnaroo outside of the main performances in Centeroo. Here’s the line-up:

The 2018 Comedy Lineup is loaded with your favorite comedians. This year  Bonnaroo’s comedy is more accessible and fun for EVERYONE. Have a laugh with Adam Devine as he performs multiple short sets right before one of your favorite bands takes the stage (specific sets to be announced soon!) and catch Reggie Watts with his own musical show on a tent stage! Lookin’ for a more intimate set? Catch a show in the air conditioning at Snake & Jakes Christmas Club Barn, or in the heart of the campgrounds in the Plaza 7 Barn near The Grove. Performers include Adam Devine, Sasheer Zamata, Melissa Villaseñor, Sheng Wang, Shane Torres, Catherine Cohen and more.
