Bonnaroo to bring back women-only camping area
Bonnaroo is bringing back SheRoo, its women-only camping area for the 2019 edition of the Manchester, Tennessee festival.
The space, which debuted in 2017, is expanding to include self-defense classes, conversations about empowerment, and much more. Check out below all the information we have about SheRoo so far.
Bonnaroo recently announced its amazing 2019 lineup. It includes three sets from the annual fest’s jam band spirit animal, Phish. Plus, the event will see performances from Post Malone, Childish Gambino, the Lumineers, Cardi B, Peach Pit and the National.
The festival takes place June 13, 14, 15 and 16 at Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee. Tickets are already on sale and you can get yours here.
The 2019 edition of the Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival will also have a communal plaza turned into a “Sanctuary Of Self-Love” curated by Paramore‘s Hayley Williams. The goal is to encourage fans to take care of themselves.
The communal plazas include shade, free public Wi-Fi access, showers, fun activities and even phone charging stations so that fans can relax and recharge. They will also have medical, safety stations and restrooms.
Billboard is reporting that Bonnaroo is bringing back SheRoo, its women-only camping area. The space is a camping space for women, women-identifying individuals and non-binary festival-goers.
SheRoo debuted in 2017 as a space for women to relax during the festival and be part of women-centered experiences. In 2019, the space will include self-defense classes, body-positive yoga, a kombucha bar, as well as collaborative art projects and body glitter sparkle stations.
Plus, it will have a tent open to all attendees during designated times, so more people can participate in the experience. This tent will also hold conversations with industry leaders about women empowerment in music.
