Sadly we are a long time away from the 2018 Bonnaroo lineup. Below you can see a table for the last four Bonnaroo lineups and when they were released.


Date of Bonnaroo Lineup

Bonnaroo 2014

February 19th

Bonnaroo 2015

January 13th

Bonnaroo 2016

January 19th

Bonnaroo 2017

January 11th

So as you can see Bonnaroo now is pretty consistently released in mid-January. This is a crowded time for lineups as many festivals (Coachella, Governors Ball, Shaky Knees) are releasing their lineups around this time. 

When do Bonnaroo Tickets go on sale?

This is in terms of the general sale (after the Black Friday presale described above). The same day of the lineup release. So in 2017 the lineup came out on January 11th and tickets went on sale that same day on January 11th at 10:00 am. Note that Bonnaroo isn't going to sell out that day, or likely ever since it holds so many people. The real reason to purchase passes early is they increase in price as Bonnaroo approaches. When tickets were released in January they were $300 and by the time Bonnaroo comes around they are $350, so purchase early!

Bonnaroo Accommodations

Generally everyone camps for Bonnaroo so booking accommodations isn't a big deal. IF you do want to stay in Nashville or Murfreesboro I highly suggest booking early, as there are limited hotels and they will fill up quite quickly for Bonnaroo. Here's the main options if you don't want to camp:

Nashville - Quite a hike to Bonnaroo, but Bonnaroo now does offer a shuttle service from Nashville to Bonnaroo daily. It's about an hour ride but does let you experience Bonnaroo and Nashville. We have a full article on attending Bonnaroo from Nashville located here.

Murfreesboro - Probably the most popular option for staying on a hotel for Bonnaroo. Bonnaroo offers shuttles from the area for certain hotels and it is the closest option to Bonnaroo as it is about halfway between Nashville and Bonnaroo

Cookesville - About the same distance to Bonnaroo as Nashville, but far cheaper and less traffic. If you are anti-Camping this is an affordable option that is a straight shot down Hwy. 111/Hwy. 70/Hwy. 55.
