Bonnaroo buys festival grounds

January 3, 2007

The Tennessean reports that the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival is buying the 500-acre farm of Sam McAllister on which the Festival has been held for five years.

This is good news. By owning its grounds, which no music festival of this size has ever done, Bonnaroo will be able to make investments in the property that will enrich the music experience of everyone who comes there. And by becoming a local property owner, Bonnaroo has a stronger hand in dealing with Coffee County officials.

For those who cannot wait, you can listen online to Bonnaroo Radio.
