As previously reported, Bonnaroo producers Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment are finalizing the purchase of the bulk of the festival site land near Manchester in Coffee County, Tenn.
"We always felt the land would be a good long term investment for us," Superfly president Jonathan Mayers told Billboard last month. "It's a big investment for us, but we believe in the long term of the festival and other events we can create on the property, and the fact that we're going to be able to put permanent infrastructure there. We're really excited about that."
