Manchester , Tennessee
37349's insider take:

Each year in mid-June, tens of thousands of music fans brave sun and sweat at the 'Roo, a four-day rock fest featuring more than 100 well-known bands and performers. Held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, about an hour southeast of Nashville on I-24, Bonnaroo is quickly becoming one of the most notable rock festivals in the United States. Acts originally leaned toward roots-y and rock-y country acts, but now span a range of musical styles: Everyone from Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A. to country legend Willie Nelson has played here. The few nearby hotels book a year in advance of the festival, and most revelers camp out in tents or sleep in cars (there are public bathrooms and showers). If you're not a 24-hour party person, stay in Nashville and buy day passes rather than a four-day ticket.
