Thousands of fans from Nashville and across the country look forward to the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, held every June in Manchester, Tenn., just over an hour southeast of Nashville. The festival consistently draws some of the biggest names in entertainment. This year’s headliners include U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Weeknd, and Chance the Rapper, as well as comedians Hannibal Buress, Natasha Leggero, and Moshe Kasher.
The evolution of Bonnaroo is notable. Since its inception in 2002, it’s become one of the highest-attended festivals in the world. Thousands of people descend upon Manchester for 4 days of fun and entertainment.
And all of those people add up. For those 4 days, an otherwise rural area becomes an absolute traffic nightmare. It’s no joke: traffic jams have been known to last up to 12 hours.
Tennessee’s hot, humid summers are far from forgiving. After a long day trekking around The Farm in 90-degree weather, you’re going to be beat. If you aren’t camping out or staying at a seedy hotel nearby, expect the ride back to Nashville be an excruciatingly long one.
You could climb aboard the hot, sweaty, crowded public shuttle for the ride back to Nashville. Or, you could wait in a never-ending line for a rideshare app, but get ready to pay at least $150 to get squished into the back of a tiny hatchback. Either way, expect to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic along the Interstate for hours.
Or, you could relax in the air-conditioned oasis of a spacious Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, as you sip on ice-cold water and refreshments from the on-board wet bar, while a driver expertly navigates the roads to completely bypass traffic.
