“We’re keeping many of the concepts that make the Tennessee festival successful, but we are developing new ideas to give the NE event a separate identity,” said Jonathan Mayers of event promoter Superfly Productions.
“Bonnaroo NE will showcase superior live performers from an ambitious array of genres, including rock, jazz, folk, funk, pop, hip-hop, electronic, and indie rock.”
In addition to the music element, Bonnaroo NE also sports a ton of other non-musical attractions, including a festival village, retro arcade tent, 24-hour cinema tent and a cyber café.
Tickets for the Bonnaroo NE Music Festival – which is being held August 8-10 at Enterprise Park in Riverhead, N.Y. (Long Island) – go on sale May 7 through the festival’s Web site, bonnaroo.com.
