The ins and outs of the 12th annual four-day, all-hour, jam-friendly roots and rock blowout in Manchester, Tenn. (June 13-16)


I prefer a flight to Nashville and shuttle bus over driving because it doesn't exhaust you before you're out in the sun for four days. -Lindsay Brandt, artist manager, Mick Management

From New York, I-81 is most of the 850-mile drive. There's no way around that. Just leave early to get to Walmart [for supplies] with enough time to relax before getting in the long line to enter the festival. -Lucas Sacks, assistant talent buyer, Brooklyn Bowl
