your survival guide to camping bonnaroo - best portable grills
In June of each year, during the music and arts festival Bonnaroo, the population of Manchester, Tennessee grew from 10,000 to more than 80,000.
While you will not be as far away from civilization in the desert as burning people, the farm will still become its own city on weekends.
Of course, you can find essentials such as ice and water, as well as luxury items such as cold-boiled coffee and vegetarian diet, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be prepared to set up a decoration
Your own camp.
From the clothing list to the necessities of the camp, here are some survival strategies that plan and pack like a professional.
If you plan to fly to bonnaru, Nashville is one of the nearest cities and is just over an hour's drive away from the hotel.
Consider booking with airlines like Southwest Airlines, which allows two free checked baggage, which means there is more room to pack festive gear.
Traffic entering the camp is notoriously bad at all times, so once you park, don't plan to drive your car to the weekend.
Bonnaroo officially started on Thursday, but the regular entry camp was opened at 8: 00 on Wednesday nightm.
The aim is to arrive early to beat the traffic and mark a camp near Centeroo, the main festival area.
If you want to find the best camp on the festival grounds, go to the VIP.
At Bonnaroo, this means that you will camp next to Centeroo and the main venue and get VIP access to the lounge and certain stages.
Camp, formerly known as tent city, is now known as the fashion title of Le Bon tent.
The biggest advantage of this option is that you can leave the heavy work of building a tent to professionals.
Of course, half the fun is to design styling for the camp, from smooth canvas safari tents to round, wind-proof bell tents or cabins.
These fully equipped tents are the ultimate holiday charm experience, including luxury items such as mattresses, bedding, and cooling devices that change the rules of the game at sultry temperatures.
Once you enter the camp in Bonnaroo, you will be directed to a piece of land that you want to do, whether you want to put a good old man on or not

Camping with friends?
Try to meet before entering the camp so you can find the sights nearby.
Once the sun rises, it is unlikely that you will sleep in it.
After all, this is Tennessee in June.
Many festival viewers choose a combination of tents and tarps or huts that provide lawn chairs to rest after the final show in the early hours of the morning.
The camp has also become an expression of creativity, from flags to colorful tapestries, which can be used as a sign of leaving home on weekends.
Tents and shelters in the forest near the camp section Bonnaroo Festival grounds have facilities such as restrooms and shower facilities, but providing portable showers for your personal Camp is worth investing in.
Campers need basic equipment such as sleeping bags, blankets, coolers, flashlights and helmets when using porta

Remember the practice of sweat and dust, sunglasses and hats of shadows, boots and sneakers of dirt and dust, but don't be afraid to shake the look of the festival you choose.
During the day, cut-

Festivals seem to be all about music, with more than 130 shows in Bonnaroo, a major factor, but the holiday friends you meet on the road make the camping here different from simply communicating with nature.
Make the most of your day in a leisurely morning, stroll on the farm and take part in activities ranging from yoga to film screenings.
Still, the best shows usually start later in the afternoon and continue until dawn.
When a show like red pepper and U2 gets on stage at midnight, you'll want to stay awake.
