This year Bonnaroo is hitting the road. Organizers of the long-running music festival announced plans for the 2019 “Ready To Roo” tour on Thursday (March 14).

The roaming tour will stop at 14 cities over the next three weeks, kicking off March 18-23 in Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville and Tampa, Florida, with other dates in Washington, D.C., Louisville, Kentucky, and more.

The tour is designed to bring the Bonnaroo spirit to music fans in their hometowns, and will feature more than 35 pop-up events, including game tournaments, drink specials and community service projects in select cities. Attendees will have the opportunity to win festival tickets as well as purchase tickets at the previously-tiered price.

“The special thing about Bonnaroo is that our fans have always been as committed to the spirit of the festival as they are to the music,” said festival co-founder Ashley Capps in a statement. “These unifying activities create a sense of community that transcends their time at the festival, and the service projects in select cities underscore Bonnaroo’s focus on social good and ‘radiating positivity,’ which is part of the Bonnaroovian code.”
