Bonnaroo and then what? More events could follow
May 20, 2013 12:33 GMT
MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) -- The former farm where the Bonnaroo music festival is held may play host to other events as well.
The partnership that puts on the annual music and arts festival in Manchester has steadily upgraded the site, adding a dozen water wells and permanent electrical power.
Festival partner Rick Farman told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/14nuEF5 ) his group is in active discussion with a lot of groups. The Great American Mud Run will be held at the site on July 27 and is expected to draw more than 5,000 participants.
Coffee County Mayor David Pennington said he's curious to see where such a plan could go, saying it could have a huge impact.
This year's Bonnaroo will be held June 13-16. Paul McCartney heads a long list if acts.
