The sixth Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be held June 14-17, 2007, at its familiar 700-acre site in Manchester, Tenn., 60 miles southeast of Nashville. A small supply of pre-sale tickets will be available beginning Wednesday (Dec. 13) at 10 a.m. ET.
Bonnaroo was named top festival for the third year in a row at the recent Billboard Touring Awards in New York. "The first five years have been pretty remarkable," says Ashley Capps of show producer A.C. Entertainment. "But we have only scratched the surface of what we believe Bonnaroo can become. We have an innovative team and we're continually searching for fresh and exciting ideas to take the festival to a new level each year."
The 2006 edition of Bonnaroo boasted performances by Tom Petty, My Morning Jacket, Radiohead, Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint and Phil Lesh, among dozens of others.

Wooooo. Yesterday I was told that I no longer have a job in spain from January through June. This cheered me up quite a bit. I'll defintely be getting a presale. Worst case scenario, sell it later and make a few dollars.
well maybe we will get an inital lineup when the presale starts. did they do a presale without announcing any bands in previous years. it seems to me that they always announced some of the lineup for the pre sale. i could be wrong though. does anyone recall howthat went??

thanx for the heads up on the site update :-)
I was expecting a little less than $125, but thats better than $200. Also, I don't think there won't be any band announcement until next year. This is sorta was Lollapalooza does to get people excited about the upcoming festival.
This makes me happy. Did they do pre-sales last year? If so what was the difference in time between when the pre-sales were, to when they announced the line-up? It seems like they might announce a opening line-up a little sooner than last year, which was around February 1st. It is crazy how tight lipped the rumor mill has been. But I do like this quote: A.C. Entertainment's Ashley Capps said. "But we have only scratched the surface of what we believe Bonnaroo can become. We have an innovative team and we're continually searching for fresh and exciting ideas to take the festival to a new level each year."
Maybe a full on dance/electronic or hip-hop tent this year. Non-stop performances starting at 5:00 pm on Thursday until 12:00 am Monday. Any other "new level" ideas?
I like the non-stop performances idea. That could add onto every performance, or they could really get into the late night sets, leaving some insane sets from pitch black to full sunrise. OR they could give some acts multiple performances like some other festivals do.
wooohooo so excited and can't wait to buy my ticket wednesday!!! I haven't completely embraced the idea of paying for VIP yet, so if I do later, I can always sell this ticket on ebay... yay!!! it's beginning
There are no words to describe the joy this brought to me. A little upset to not be able to get the early tickets but I would like to see a line up. Time to start saving and recruitng people to come! Also, here's hoping we see String Cheese in the first line up.
