According to the festival’s website, Manchester’s Great State Park is currently having a permanent water line installed beneath its grounds. The water line will supply various new accommodations, including more than 400 flushable toilets and hundreds of permanent showers, as well as additional water filling stations. However, for every sleek, shiny throne of porcelain, there is a price.
In the same update, Bonnaroo announced the introduction of a vehicle pass program. The program requires that every standard vehicle purchase a pass to be permitted into the campgrounds. Car Camping Passes are priced at $59.75, while one-day Parking Passes are available for $39.75. Purchasing an additional Camping Pass will not secure more camping space unless an additional vehicle is driven as well. Festival organizers say this additional fee has been added to help pay for the new amenities, as well as to encourage festival-goers to carpool, reducing the festival’s carbon footprint and saving space on the grounds.
While Bonnaroovians may be less than pleased at the additional price tag, they may rest easier knowing there is a decreased likelihood of drinking egg-flavored well-water while struggling to hover over a porta-potty seat this summer.
