There are some 700 acres of land in Manchester, Tennessee that’s normally home to cows and what not. However once a year, the field accommodates a different bunch: the people for the Bonnaroo Festival.
Bonnaroo is a four-day music festival with 24/7 music going on to roughly 80,000 music loving campers. Sounds like a recipe for ecological disaster, right?
All of the non-music stages (and some lighting equipment) are powered by non-diesel generators in an attempt to reduce environmental offset. Bonnaroo even has a solar powered stage.
Bonnaroo’s website has concert guidelines, urging people to be clean. “Just because it’s a farm doesn’t mean you have to live in a pigsty.”
However even with the kind warning, trash still can be an issue – a six hundred ton issue. Luckily, Bonnaroo works with Clean Vibes to ensure that trash is removed and sorted appropriately. WastAway also pitches in and melts down trash for use with construction.
So if you’re not doing anything, make plans to take a trip down (or whichever respective direction Tennessee is from you) to Bonnaroo this year. Be sure to consult #Paceblog’s resident travel blogger, Carly Steet to plan yourself an awesome trip.
