The Other Tent, an alternative getaway for Bonnaroo guests, has now been torn down, and replaced with a new stage area known as The Other.

Bonnaroo has went with curated stages in the past that grouped genres of music for all day viewing. The Other combines hiphop, dance and experimental music together for around the clock exposure to the hottest musicians in the country.

Big Gigantic will be hosting one of the best sets on the stage for the weekend. Their live performances at Bonnaroo are always a must-see.

Marshmello will draw one of the larger crowds, so it will be vital to get to that show early for a good spot.

The Other Tent debuted at Bonnaroo in 2003 with Gavin Degraw, Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons, and RAQ performing live. Fast forward over fourteen years, and the tent that served as a showcase for acoustic and analog instruments is now home to the bass hungry guests from all over the globe.

Bonnaroo in 2002 released a DVD covering the event. If you get a chance, rent or buy the DVD, read the inner notes, and open your mind about what direction the Bonnaroo Music Festival should go in for 2018. This festival set the trend for major music festivals. It does not have to follow trends.

Bonnaroo should build a ‘Ballroom’ or ‘Theater’ tent to help honor the past legends that performed at the festival. They can bring in past performers to jam with up and coming artists. That is the “really good stuff.”

The 2002 & 2003 era of Bonnaroo is now nostalgic. People in this generation tend to want to blend the pervious generational trends with the current. This is why vinyl is continuing to make a comeback. The festival organizers need to tap into that trend.
