BONNAROO: Manchester, TN; June 12–15; General admission: $284.50 + $28.80 service fee; bonnaroo.com
The Southern granddaddy of the national festival circuit draws a crowd 80,000-plus strong. The big acts this year include Kanye West, Jack White, Elton John, the Flaming Lips, and Vampire Weekend, performing across 11 stages.
In addition to its popular arts and crafts tents—as well as workshops on sustainability—there’s a food-truck oasis offering cuisine from all over the world, a “Broo’ers Festival” microbrew tasting area, and a silent rave-style dance party where DJs spin tunes directly into dancers’ headphones.
Fit Offerings: The Saturday morning “Roo Run,” a 5K that loops around the Farm, Bonnaroo’s name for the festival grounds. Though it’s held in good fun, the run is actually competitive: Racers wear bibs and compete for prizes, including tickets to Bonnaroo 2015.
