The death of Bonnaroo? (greatly exaggerated, of course)

Monday, June 21st, 2004 @ 3:33 am | Current Events

Sunday’s lead article in the Tennessean reports that locals in Manchester, Coffee County (where Bonnaroo is held) are questioning whether the yearly music festival is worth it. The deaths of two concertgoers this year, the inevitable traffic problems, and rampant drug use have raised concerns.

Compared to similar large gatherings, Bonnaroo is rather peaceful, and organizers have tried their best to minimize security, traffic and drug problems. “Granted there’s some people who are inconvenienced because of the traffic… But the Titans inconvenience people. A Vanderbilt football game inconveniences people. Life is that way.”
