Centeroo evacuated because of storms

Bonnaroo is back. Finally. 

After a two-year hiatus, a small city of fesitvalgoers arrived Thursday to Manchester, Tennessee, for Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival — AKA a psychedelic summer camp jam-packed with four nights of nonstop performances, food and campground shenanigans. 

A team of Tennessean reporters set up camp Thursday at Great Stage Park (known lovingly to Bonnaroo faithful as “The Farm). Follow along for real-time updates on scorching hot weather, crowds, festival fashion, tunes and everything in-between. 


All stages open on day two, with rapper J. Cole set to headline the What Stage. Follow along below. 

*drumroll, please* Centeroo reopens 

1:45 p.m.: Campground heartbeat Centeroo reopened mid-afternoon Friday in time for fans to claim a spot before music takes off in earnest. 

Nashville singer-songwriter kicks off the Which Stage at 2:15 p.m., while blues band Southern Avenue was set to perform inside That Tent in the 1 p.m. hour. 

The storm passes 

12:45 p.m.: Rain and severe wind pummeled Bonnaroo grounds as many campers tucked into cars and RVs for a shelter-in-place order that temporarily closed main music hub Centeroo a few hours earlier.
