The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is a four-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee every June. In addition to dozens of epic performances, the 100 acres of Bonnaroo also provides entertainment around the clock with attractions and activities including an arcade & discotheque, on-site cinema, silent disco, comedy club, theater performers, art installations, a beer festival, and a variety of cafes and restaurants.
In preparation for Bonnaroo, we have taken steps to add capacity to our existing area cell site and have also added network capacity through the use of COWs and other temporary network equipment. In addition, on and off-site engineers will do everything possible to maximize network performance to keep our customers connected.
