Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival announced the lineup for its 2023 edition on Tuesday, and Kendrick Lamar, Odesza, Foo Fighters, Baby Keem, Paramore and many more are headed to The Farm. The festival takes place June 15-18 in Manchester, Tennesee, 60 miles southeast of Nashville, and returns for its 20th iteration. Additional lineup highlights include J.I.D, GRiZ, My Morning Jacket, 070 Shake, Tyler Childers, Amber Mark, Fleet Foxes, and Three 6 Mafia, performing over the four-day festival that features 10 unique stages.
North Carolina will also be represented on The Farm in 2023, with Durham electro-pop duo Sylvan Esso performing Friday, and Boone indie rockers Rainbow Kitten Surprise playing Saturday. Sylvan Esso (who also announced a summer tour) released their latest album, No Rules Sandy, in August, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise is coming off a sold-out winter tour.
SEE YOU THIS SUMMER 🥵

Bonnaroo’s traditional SuperJam– a themed collaborative set featuring multiple artists and hosted by one act– has yet to be announced, but Sylvan Esso could be a likely candidate. The group was set to host the 2021 SuperJam prior to the festival’s cancellation.

One way Bonnaroo plans to help boost attendance comes in the form of single-day tickets. Day passes have been available in years past, but were always costly as they included a shuttle from Nashville, Tennessee. This year, Bonnaroo is offering the single-day tickets with onsite parking, or a much shorter shuttle option from within Manchester, starting at $175.
Can’t commit to the whole weekend? We’ve got you covered: New in 2023, 1-Day Tickets will be available 🙌🤩

Another new element this year is the uncoupling of festival tickets and camping accommodations. Attendees can mix and match their entry status (GA, GA+, VIP, Platinum) with a variety of camping locations, allowing for more flexible pricing options. A wide range of camping and parking options will be available, including car camping, glamping, RVs, backstage camping, community camping, and more.
Tickets for Bonnaroo go on sale Thursday, January 12 at 10 a.m. via an early access sale that requires fans to pre-register at Bonnaroo.com to receive a code. A public on-sale will follow if tickets remain. The four-day passes start at $299, while parking accommodations begin at $50. Prices will gradually increase as the festival approaches.
