Bonnaroo Begins -- Sky Arnold

Manchester, Tenn --- The party in Manchester's Walmart parking lot has become something of a Bonnaroo tradition.

Every year on the day before the four day music festival begins, fans pack into the parking lot with tents and this year costumes.

Emily Golden was one of them.

She's looking forward to seeing Jack White along with Sunday's headliner.

 "Everybody is talking about Elton John.  He's gonna put on a good show," said Golden.

Bonnaroo founder Ashley Capps says the festival started looking at Elton John after last year's performance by former Beatle Paul McCartney.

"Especially after Paul McCartney's performance last year it was like ok what are we gonna do in 2014," said Capps.    "We're always looking for great iconic artists to come to Bonnaroo and perform."

The other headliner is Friday's performer Kayne West.

Wednesday afternoon there were rumors West's Wife Kim Kardashian might be making an appearance at the festival.

Bonnaroo isn't ready to confirm that but the festival is offering something this year that will allow fans to watch her husband without camping.

For the 2nd year, the festival is offering day passes that include a round trip bus ride from Nashville.

 "It's for those folks that maybe want to experience Bonnaroo but not experience some of the other aspects of Bonnaroo," said Jeff Cuellar with Bonnaroo Community Relations.
