through December 31st. These tickets will be specially priced ticket levels

general admission tickets will be available as well for five (5) payments of

video. A link for viewing it is below:
Consistently and successfully looking for ways to improve the
festival each year, Bonnaroo’s eighth promises to build on the triumphs of
the previous seven in every way. From its music programming to the non-music
attractions, activities and art, the promoters
are already hard at work adding new and exciting elements to create yet
another legendary weekend. Since it’s inception in 2002, the festival has
evolved into an incomparable multi-faceted entertainment experience, swiftly
earning its status as the country’s premier music and arts event.
Bonnaroo continues to make a strong impact on the American music
industry. The festival has served as a launching pad for such popular artists
as Norah Jones, Jack Johnson, Robert Randolph, My Morning Jacket, Ray
Lamontagne, Matisyahu, and many others. A creative and cultural mega-success,
Bonnaroo has also featured a staggeringly diverse range of world-class acts
such as Bob Dylan, Metallica, Neil Young, Radiohead, Willie Nelson, The Police,
Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, Tool, Wilco, The Dave Matthews Band, James Brown, The
White Stripes, The Dead, Regina Spektor, Widespread Panic, Death Cab For
Cutie, Elvis Costello, Amadou and Mariam, Beck, Against Me!, The Black
Crowes, Alison Krauss, Bright Eyes, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Earle, Jurassic 5,
Modest Mouse, The Mars Volta, Common, Burning Spear, the Flaming Lips, among
so many others.
The festival is also starting to make quite an impact on the
comedy industry as well, as it has featured some of today’s best comedians
working today. From Chris Rock, Lewis Black, Flight of the Concords, David
Cross and Fred Armisen to Jim Norton, Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis,
Janeane Garofalo and Brian Posehn, Bonnaroo is considered to be an essential
play in any comedian’s touring plans.
