Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival: Summer Live Preview 2010
Dates: June 10-13
Venue: A built-out field in Manchester, Tenn.
Ticket prices: $234.40-$249.50
While there isn't any "wow" booking like the Police or Metallica, the aggregate mix of talent fielded by this top-grossing U.S. festival is as strong as ever.
Outlook: Founded and produced by AC Entertainment and Superfly Presents, Bonnaroo has been a massive success since 2002. This year, sales have been steady, ahead of last year's pace. This is the type of lineup that builds interest over time, and Bonnaroo will end up near a sellout at 80,000.
