Definitely get hooked up with the good folks at accessibility if you have not already.

Keeping cool and hydrated are also going to be of major concern...obviously. Outside of the obvious things like wide brim hat, high SPF sunscreen (and plenty of it!), and a camelbak a few things come to mind:

  • Frogg Togg Chilly Pad - wife and I used them a few years changer. Pick up a couple.

  • A personal fan - I don't use one, but, you may find it useful.

    Of course, having a good friend along to help carry stuff and keep an eye on you is also important. I assume you won't partake in any partyfavors, but, I'd feel bad if I didn't drop a reminder not to.

    Other random thoughts:

  • Get comfortable walking shoes and break them in before Bonnaroo
  • Rent an RV if you can swing it. Most in and around the major cities near Bonnaroo (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville) are all long gone by now, but, worthwhile to try and find one. You'll be much more comfortable through the weekend.
  • Remember it is a marathon, not a sprint. When the schedule comes out look over and determine when you'll have good solid gaps to be able to take a break. Centeroo can be overwhelming for anyone and it's good to get some time at the campsite and chill.
  • Get a CamelBak or other hydration system - mine has lasted me 10+ years, brand name is worth it.

    I've never been in accessibility, but, from everything I understand they take extremely good care of everyone. A good friend of mine has gone that way with his brother 3 times and they love it.

    This is everything I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure you've done it, but, definitely talk to your doctors about certain things you should be mindful of while there. I'm sure accesibility is different, but, average Bonnaroovian spends a TON of time on their feet and in the sun. It can be exhausting even for healthy individuals. Partying from noon (or earlier) until 3AM (or later) takes it out of anyone. Just know yourself, your limitations, and priority shows and pace the weekend accordingly.

    Feel free to PM if you have additional questions.

Great thinking! I'll give you my experience with the ones I've used.

First I bought this set from Etymotic for myself and my Croo years ago. For the price they're great and served me quite well at local shows and Roo alike until I lost them at Roo in 2016 (luckily I always carry disposable ones too in case anyone around me in the crowd wants a pair so I wasn't deaf by the end of that Roo). I liked them for the price and the carrying case however they did have some issues like their odd fit for some folks.

After losing the Etymotic's at Roo in 2016 I bought this set from Eargasm pretty much as soon as I got home. They're a bit pricier than the Etymotic's but well worth the price in my opinion. They come with a large and small in ear insert in order to ensure a good fit for most and instead of using a tube and dampening materials like the Etymotic's the Eargasm's actually have a tiny filter that makes for much more even tones/sounds. They also come with a much better carrying case and have yet to have an issue with them in the ~2.5 years I've had them.

Side note about the Eargasm's, their carrying case is a tiny metal canister that comes equipped with a keychain and I take them to every show I go to, I mention this because the canister does look like something you'd house party favors in so the security may have you open the canister up so they can inspect it. I've also found the canister sets off metal detectors so if you do attempt to get through using it as a party favor holder it may come back to bite you. Just figured I'd give you a heads up there since I've gotten many strange looks from security and fellow show goers alike until I open them up and pop the plugs in.

Hopefully this helps! If you've got any questions about either set let me know!

> wondering if Bonnaroo has any sort of plan in place for extreme weather like severe thunderstorms or tornadoes

Not really, other than stopping shows and asking people to evacuate enclosed areas like the cinema tent and smaller fenced off areas like pits by the front of stage.

> What are your recommendations for being weather ready at Bonnaroo?

  • We bring cheap but large rain boots with us every year. Something like these. Maybe go to Wal Mart or something and see if you can find cheaper. Because when the rain really comes down and makes everything a mud pit...crap like a pair of Crocs or flip flops just isn't going to cut it. I want to stomp around and not worry about it.

  • Bring more than enough socks to last you the weekend. I usually bring like 8 pairs. Just in case. Honestly, once you get past your feet, rain isn't going to do much to you other than maybe make you a little chilly. But it will fuck your feet up (NSFL pic of what happens to wet feet in wet shoes over a long weekend). So just make sure to keep your feet as dry and clean as possible when the weather is nasty.

  • Make sure you have things to secure your tent/canopy. Nothing like having your canopy fly away in the middle of a thunderstorm. Buy a cheap kit like this. And then maybe some extra stakes. And then secure the shit out of your campsite.

  • Depending on the size of your tent, get a cheap military style cot. If your tent fills up with mud and water, this will keep you very happy. We started bringing cots a few years ago and they are freaking fantastic. No sleeping in dirt or mud.

  • Buy a semi-decent lightweight poncho and bring it with you. Stash it in your backpack. It will likely be the same price as those cheap plastic ones they will sell inside the venue. But will last you more than one use.

    edit: a couple more pictures to show you what a wet bonnaroo looks like. 1. 2. 3. 4.
u/BlueLightSpcl · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

We just went on a big shopping trip this afternoon. We are going to attempt to fly our 4x6 foot flag with 3, 5 feet sections of 1 and a quarter inch PVC pipe, some connectors, a bucket, and 50 pounds of quick crete (about $20 total). We have one of the pipes cut into a point just in case we need to mallet it into the ground. Our list, and other distracting items. We also have duct tape just in case.

I also just bought a two plug car AC converter. I bought these recently. Excellent source of fiber and protein. And 600 glowstick bracelets.

We have acquired most everything we need. We will end up buying around 8-9 24 packs of water in addition to a dozen or so gallons and some other easy access water. We have a 15 passenger van with back seats taken out (no storage concerns), and its our first time going, but we figure people will be needing water come Sunday.

Here is a list of the things we purchased today. Maybe a thing or two will give you some ideas. We also used this as a guide and checklist as well:

  • -9x9 feet EZ Canopy
  • -6 cases of 24 waters
  • -a few gallon jugs of water
  • -2, 2.5 jugs of drinking water with spigget
  • -7 liters of gatorade
  • -imodium
  • -antacid
  • -acetometaphin/caffine/aspirin in one
  • -3 in 1 shampoo/conditioner/body wash
  • -bungee cords (4, a variety of sizes)
  • -100 feet of twine/high tensil string
  • -lamp oil
  • -small baby power and antibacterial gel
  • -4, 5 foot sections of 1,1/4" PVC pipe with connectors
  • -4 buckets (to carry water, epsom salt, etc)
  • -50 lbs of quickcrete (to put in bucket to make 15 foot flagpole with above)
  • -UV resistant, 8" zip ties
  • -UV resistant, thick tarp in case of rain and to cover the tent from sun heat
  • -baby wipes

    Some things we bought individually: ear plugs, eyemask for sleep, offbrand camelbaks (2 liters with additional storage), flasks, granola bars (a variety, including a few boxes of high fiber), twizzlers, a metal hot/cold thermos, sugar free red bull (8 cans). should be bringing a few pounds of homemade beef jerky.

    This all totaled around $250 or so.

    [Friend], this is what we need you to buy:

  • -100 or more red cups
  • -paper towels
  • -toilet paper
  • -more baby and wet wipes
  • -coke/coke zero/any mixers in cans, not 2 liters
  • -5 hour energies (Wal-Mart may be cheaper than Costco? It was 10 for $16)
  • -zip lock bags (a variety of sizes)
  • -battery powered fan
  • -more gallons and cases of water. the more, the better
  • -gold bond extra strength
  • -clif bars
  • -dish/plasticware
  • -oil/fuel/pots/pans for your stove
  • -gatorade powder
  • -miscellaneous food items. we didn't buy a whole lot of food. or anything that could be cooked. i figure you can use your judgment and we'll go to Wal-Mart the night before.
u/glass_head420 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I know you already bought it but it's easy to ask around and borrow a rubber mallet if you don't have one. This list should help you out. Other than that make sure you get the following things.

  • Water bladder and small backpack- Absolute must get to stay hydrated and comfortably hold everything you need while you're on the go

  • External Charger- I've had good luck with this one. It can charge an iphone around 5+ times before it runs out. It's a real lifesaver

  • Camp chair

  • Headlamp/ Lantern

u/ismellsogood · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Do you care to link me to the ones you have? I've been looking at a lot of them on Amazon but there's so many options and it's hard to tell about the quality.

For anyone interested, this is the hammock stand I ordered. It has almost perfect reviews, assembles and disassembles in less than 3 minutes, is perfectly made for ENO hammocks, and is the exact right size to fit under a 10x10 EZ-Up. It's also way cheaper than the other options.

u/sleepycarl10 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I have 3 battery powered fans. Out of all 3 I think this one is the best one. Its smaller but that makes it portable and it has a lot of power (more than the next two I have) and has rechargeable batteries which are a big plus!

This one is nice to have hanging from the ceiling in your tent and also has a nice light for at night but its not that powerful at all and takes 2 D batteries.

Lastly this is the one you can get from walmart or amazon. It takes the most batteries (6 D batteries) but has pretty good power if its close to you. It can be awkward to position in your tent for it to actually cool you off depending on your sleeping situation...

u/Tomcat87 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

> Do you feel that a cot might be more beneficial than the mattress?

Without question. When you have back pain you need support. Air matresses, while soft, offer very little in the way of support. My SO won't go camping (glamping really) without the cots now. They're far more comfortable. Especially if you throw a couple of nice blankets of them. These are the ones we use. They're considered extra large and the extra space feels great.

u/ushmel · 4 pointsr/bonnaroo

Usually they'll have one of those small honda generators. They're really quiet. You're not supposed to have generators in GA, IIRC, but lol rules. They're hot items for theft too, so be careful.

Alternatively, I've seen people use the power packs like for car emergencies that have the regular plug outlets. They'll die pretty quickly with continuous use, so sometimes people bring a fee, but they're easily $100 each(example: . They take forever to recharge, so it's not likely you'll be able to do it at the park. Or you can get this beast:

The real LPT is engineering a deep cycle battery into a custom made box. Like this:

Most these crews have this stuff laying around from hunting/camping/fishing/etc. So the investment curve is steep for strictly festivals.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/bonnaroo

A mister is a good call. I had one of those pocket fans with a misting spray bottle attached, picked it up for super cheap at a dollar store and it came in handy but I didn't end up using it all that much.

Last year, my friend's girlfriend brought these things called Frog Toggs, it's like a hand towel made of a weird fabric that gets cold when it gets wet. I kept one around the back of my neck and then just wet it again whenever I went to get water. Came in really handy and I was surprised how well it worked.

u/sandi_boi · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Kamp-Rite Double Kwik Cot this bad boy plus a moon mat on each side is what my fiance and I have used the past 2 years. Best sleep ever for Roo, without a mattress or anything it gets great airflow. But be sure to bring blankets/hoodies. I know we as well as many other people froze one night this past year, because we didn't have any

u/livesbydryshampoo · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

This will be our third year using these cots and we use them in the tent and don’t have any condensation issues, but the bedding in top does sometimes. They store like folding chairs in a sleeve and are sturdy. I love my husband but I would never sleep in one with him, especially at Roo. Tooooo hot.

u/discoafroman · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

So if you want to buy it in person a Academy or Walmart may work well. I actually got mine from a friend and I believe they got it online. Mine looks exactly like this, each of the pieces comes off and are just straight steel tubes that fit together in a bag or car.

u/cantwealljusgetalong · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Not sure on your financial situation but I purchased this hammock stand and received it in the mail yesterday. I set it up at home and laid in my hammock and it worked well. Easy set up and seems sturdy, however I'm a pretty thing guy. Should do the trick. See ya on the farm!

u/sylviroo · 7 pointsr/bonnaroo

I see people that have large fans at their camps but the only battery powered fans I can find are really small and don't do much. Do ya'll bring generators with you to power the larger fans? Or can someone let me know of a decent fan that will help keep the tent slightly cooler and circulate the air a little bit? Trying to beat the heat!!

Last year we tried this one but it wasn't quite as powerful as I was hoping for.

u/cassaundraloren · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

This Boy!! I have used it for all of my Roo's with my double eno! Super cheap ($56) and works great. Fits under easy-up

u/ypsigypsi · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

the one I have

Works great and easy set up and take down! Slept like a fuckin baby at Roo last year

u/runningraleigh · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo


I own it, it's amazing, I'm bringing it and putting a tarp over it to sleep. Best idea I ever had.

PS: Try to get it on sale, the price has apparently gone up on Amazon since I got mine.

u/Pterodictyl · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Sadly can't use an Eno style hammock with this stand. That's a nice affordable option, but if you can manage the extra funds this style will be nicer, more sturdy, and more versatile. My oldest one is making it to its 4th Bonnaroo this year, and I recently bought two more to keep in camp for friends to nap in.

u/LRGDNA · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

The first year I used this cotton hammock that I bought with the stand. The second year I used a Mayan hammock that I actually bought at one of the kiosks in centeroo. I really loved the Mayan. I looked up the eno and it should work pretty well. The stand is 9' end to end but is made to work with hammocks up to 15'. Most of the enos run 9'4" so it should fit decently. The actual hooks are further down so you will need short straps to run over the end rails of the stand and hook in.

u/merithynos · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Being up off the ground helps a lot with the heat, as does not being in an enclosed space. This hammock stand:

was fantastic, setup/takedown in five minutes, and I was able to fit it (via the pass-thru) in my two seat convertible.

I might go with a lighter (less warm) hammock next time.

u/djcubicle · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I found this one that uses ~40% of the battery life a night (personal test) for my ResMed Mini. I'll have a solar panel with me to recharge it though. It sounds like the people at the medical tent are super helpful so I'm also toying with the idea of seeing if they'll let me drop it off for a recharge from a 110v outlet.

u/AsifDelawalla · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

First year going to any music festival and incredibly excited to be going to roo. My buddy and I got an EZ Up canopy/tent from dicks for like $50 and I bought a [hammock stand](Best ChoiceProducts Space Saving Steel Hammock Stand 9' Outdoor Patio Portable with Carrying Case to use with my ENO for $55. I got an extra one for my buddy from my boss at work.

We're planning on putting up bedsheets/tapestries all around to avoid sweating at sunrise and getting sunburnt af.

EDIT: Also, from the research I've done, if you have a hammock, it should allow air to run above you and underneath you. Most people say it actually gets kinda chilly for them at night in a hammock.

u/Chaseism · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Thanks for the advice! I recently bought this bad boy for $30 on Amazon and it'll recharge my phone a few times during Roo. I've already added this little guy to go with it. I doubt I'll need all that power, but it'll definitely help my buddies recharge their electronics. And who knows, maybe some fellow bonnaroovian will need a charge.

u/themandober · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

Got a Frogg Toggs version of this two years ago for 'Roo and it helped. It wasn't the be-all-end-all (nothing short of an AC'ed RV is going to be anyway), but it made the difference between suffering and surviving. I can only vouch for Frogg Toggs' version of these towels but it did help to keep me a bit more comfortable in the peak heat.

u/kanye_is_my_dad · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

I bought two of these and plan to just put them next to each other. From my research most double cots are kind of just okay because they all have a bar going down the middle of them (like in between where you and your partner would be laying) So instead I just got two of the best single person cots I could find. These already come with a foam pad as well!!!

u/slothzy · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Not too cheap, but I love it. I can use it in my yard also, so justifies the money.

u/tabiyeh · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

this is the one I got. It's compact, easy to set up, and very comfortable in terms of camping sleep.

u/lizzie5464 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I just ordered this pretty neat kit. Mallets retail over 10 bucks usually, just by themselves.

u/hi_123 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Someone mentioned a coleman cot being the best sleep he's had at roo.

I found this one on Amazon and will likely get it:

u/Aristartle · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Check these out:

They stay wet and cool for pretty much forever, very refreshing to rest on your neck/head...

u/MY_NAME_MELANIE · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

The EZ-up/tapestries/cot combo last year was AWESOME. I slept from about 6am-1pm easily every day thanks to that sweet airflow <3

Bought this one from Amazon. It's sturdy af, but the downside is it takes up almost as much space as the EZ-up when it's packed.

u/RebelToaster · 7 pointsr/bonnaroo

Jackery Titan 20100 mAh 2 Port 3.4A Smart Fit Technology Portable Charger for All Smartphones and Apple Devices - Black

u/Snops1017 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I'm getting contacts in a few weeks and I plan on bringing both. Keep in mind I've never been to roo either, so I'm not telling you this from experience, but I think contacts during the day to wear with sunglasses with the option to wear glasses at night is the way to go.

Also, since you've never been to a concert before, definitely bring earplugs. Several pairs as backup. Not everyone needs them, but after concerts I get bad tinnitus for a week or so and I can't focus on anything else. I strongly recommend these.

u/0311 · 5 pointsr/bonnaroo

I have this one with my Eno. Used it at Okeechobee and it was perfect.

u/JustynCarter · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Order these instead, slightly cheaper and a few more inches square space wise. Comes with a table too!

u/Whiskeyina_teacup · 7 pointsr/bonnaroo

I have the etymotic ones from amazon.

Got them before seeing Basslights (Bassnectar+Pretty Lights) this past year and could not be happier. The sound is still great, but filtered so it is no where near as loud. They have the string and a small plastic carrying case.

In addition, for when you are not at shows I recommend some of the waxy swimming ear plugs. They stick in your ear much better than the foam ones and really help to cut out sound when you are trying to sleep at night.

u/allkatydid · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

I can’t recommend these etymotics enough. They’re cheap enough that you can buy a few pairs in case you lose one, or need to lend to a friend.

If you want to invest long term, you can get custom fit ear plugs. Check out a place near you that makes hearing aids. They typically will mold musicians ear plugs for a little over $100. I did this and it was so worth it. ( not for those who are prone to losing things )

u/Shaison815 · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

I ordered some clips off Amazon that I like a lot. Only thing I’ve been able to find that works for me

u/Forscyvus · 5 pointsr/bonnaroo

These are made to not make anything sound too weird.

I don't have experience with them though, that's just what I've found from browsing. Reviews seem positive enough.

u/Priv8snoball · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

My girlfriend and I each used one of these last year and they were great. It's obviously not the perfect cot but you should be exhausted when you need it and it's good enough for that.

u/demhippies · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I have a Misty Mate and a Frogg Toggs Towel. I can't handle Bonnaroo heat so I arm myself to the teeth with ways to cool down.

u/War_and_Oates · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I got one of those to try out on the farm this year. I've used it a little so far and when it's got direct sun it charges my phone pretty quickly.

u/mrbigbigums · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Glowsticks aren't allowed so stash them well. Fingerlights are allowed so you can bring them without worrying about them being hidden. Fireworks glasses don't glow, but they enhance all other glow toys and stage lights.

u/Gettinthere6 · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

+1 to the cot. I've been using one for 3 years at Roo and wouldn't think of any other way. Keeps you comfy, no worry about air mattresses deflating or sleeping bags getting too hot. Plus you can stash stuff under them saving all important space. I have one similar to this Texsport Deluxe Folding Camp Cot

All you need is a sheet and a pillow. Maybe a light blanket in case it gets cold like last year. We have a group of 10, after seeing my comfort the first year, most of my group has switched to the cot route too.

BESTEK 300W Power Inverter DC 12V to 110V AC Car Inverter with 4.2A Dual USB Car Adapter

u/BigForShort · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I took this last year. I took it out of the case and put it in a backpack with my camelbak. Didn't have to pump it very often and the tank lasted at least as long as my water supply did.

u/Orgizm · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Here's what I've brought to multiple festivals. Couldn't recommend more. You can adjust the hooks to make it more or less taut which can help keep your back from getting sore if you're not trying to sleep in a U shape.

u/Robert_L0blaw · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I bought one of these last year for 'Roo. It has two USB charging ports, but no built in battery. Between that and an external battery I was charging off it I was able to keep my group of three's phones charged, as well as the neighbors who used it.

u/whotherooareyou · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

get two of these bad bois and push them together so you can sleep next to each other. ive had this one for about 2 years and ive never slept better at festivals. ive seen them cheaper before i’d check walmart or other places for around $50

u/scottcockerman · 5 pointsr/bonnaroo

One of these fuckers. Drop it into your cooler of ice. Thank me when you get back.

u/shaggyhair · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

We have this at our house. We brought it a couple years ago. Breaks down pretty well and fit into the trunk of a Mazda3 easily. My advice would be to not buy a "compact" hammock stand just because it seems easier. We originally bought one that folds up into one piece. Sort of like one of those shitty camping chairs but a hammock. That thing was terrible and the fabric didn't breathe at all. Top 5 worst Bonnaroo purchases.

u/Freonr2 · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

I brought this:

.. and never used the light. Last year, every day by the time I was back at camp it was time to pass out. Never needed a light.

I did use this on my keyfob:

...the day it rained and was muddy, to light up the ground as we walked around and avoid the worst of the mud. This thing is STUPID bright and lasts long enough to get you through short term intermittent use like that.
