Outeroo, the campgrounds at Bonnaroo, is your home for the duration of your stay at the festival. The campgrounds at Bonnaroo are like no place on earth. Neighbors become family, surprises abound and activities go around the clock.

Customizing Your Experience
The ticket buying process for Bonnaroo can be customized to match the exact experience you hope to have while you’re at The Farm. It’s broken down into a simple 2 set process:
- Purchase your Centeroo Ticket – Choose from GA, GA+, VIP or Platinum. Each has it’s own perks that you can learn about on the ticket page. Perks include things like air conditioned lounges, dedicated viewing areas, premium restrooms, golf cart transportation between stages and more… Remember, EVERYONE entering The Farm MUST HAVE THEIR OWN CENTEROO TICKET.
- Purchase your Outeroo Camping or Parking Accommodation – Visit the interactive map on our website and browse by location within the campgrounds or type of accommodation. Most fans opt for primitive car camping which allows you to bring your own gear and set up camp with your road trip mates in a 20x20 campsite. If camping isn’t for you or you’re traveling light to the festival, Outeroo also offers accommodations to make your trip easier and more comfortable. Festival goers can choose from pre-pitched accommodations like luxury glamping tents, darkroom tents with air-conditioning, souvenir tents that you can take home with you after the festival and more. We also offer both primitive and power RV spots that allow for you to bring your home on wheels to the festival.
Inside Outeroo, you’ll find a number of different plazas. Plazas are strategically located public places for the community to gather, enjoy art & activities and provide access to amenities (toilets, showers, info, medical, safety staff, food, etc…) Plazas also provide home to extra programming and festivities all included in your Centeroo ticket. Visit House of Yes for rainbow realness and psychedelic sci-fi, Where in the Woods for all night dance parties with some of the world’s best DJs and many more.
