Officials with the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival have officially requested that the city of Manchester annex its property to officially become a part of the city of Manchester.
Currently, Great Stage Park (the location of the annual festival), is located in Coffee County and outside of the Manchester City Limits.
“As a board of Mayor and Aldermen we will do what is best for our city,” said Manchester Mayor Marilyn Howard. “This process and negotiation is in the very early stages and has many moving parts and entities. We will work through this and report to the pubic what this would mean as we work through this process.”
There are public meetings that will be scheduled for April.
Bonnaroo is scheduled to take place September 2 – 5, 2021. This year marks the 20th anniversary for the concert series.
