The time for music festivals is sneaking upon us and Bonnaroo is one of the top festivals
every summer. Bonnaroo takes place in Manchester, Tennessee every June. Multiple stages host both mainstream and emerging bands. Artists set up shop throughout the Bonnaroo grounds. Delicious local and organic food is served. And, alas, a giant mushroom spitting water acts as a cleansing landmark for all Bonnaroo attendees. The mushroom fountain takes a different form each year, sometimes sporting neon colors and sometimes more simple colors, but no matter what, it’s something you can’t miss at Bonnaroo.
This photo of the Bonnaroo fountain was shot during Bonnaroo 2010 by photographer Ben Britz. Want us to feature one of your photos for photo of the day? Upload your shots to the Gadling Flickr Pool.
Summer is for music festivals – and music festivals don’t get much better than the Bonnaroo music & arts festival in Manchester, Tennessee. Rolling Stone called Bonnaroo the “ultimate over the top summer festival”.
Now, part of the fun of a summer festival is of course pitching your tent and roughing it out – but if you’d like to visit Bonnaroo with a little more luxury, Fuse and Twix have put together the “Keys to the Barn” sweepstakes. With a prize package worth well over $10,000, you and ten of your friends will be flown to Bonnaroo where you’ll sleep in the Fuze and Twix (air conditioned) barn for three nights. They’ll also throw in a meet and greet with a band, $500 in spending money and all the Twix products you and your friends can eat.
