Headed to one of the best festivals ever? Here’s the ultimate Bonnaroo packing list to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the festival!
Despite living in Tennessee for most of my life, Bonnaroo wasn’t something I got to attend until I was almost 30 years old! For a long time, I didn’t even think it was my scene, and then the timing just didn’t work out. But, finally, it happened! And, I found out I was going with less than two weeks to prepare. In those two weeks, I agonized over what to add to my Bonnaroo packing list more than I can possibly describe.
Psst: Looking for more information on Bonnaroo? Check out a few of our other posts!
For 13 days, I read every forum, guide, and Bonnaroo packing list I can find on the internet because I wanted it to be perfect. I didn’t find one single list that I loved so I decided to put together this Bonnaroo packing list too, hopefully, make it easier for anyone that reads it and is attending Bonnaroo this year!
For our campsite, we ultimately decided to do a little truck camping. We just so happen to have a truck with a camper top and I thought ‘well, why not just throw a mattress in the bed?’ We have a tent, a very nice one actually, but if it rains the whole time, I really didn’t want to deal with mud and water all in our tent. So, we found a free mattress on Craigslist, cut it to fit over the wheel well and…TA DA! Then, we have a 10×10 canopy tent (with walls) which will be our living area. One side will go just over the tailgate area so that “our bed” will open up into the canopy tent. Then we have a silver tarp to put over the top of the camper so as to keep it from feeling like an oven in there (read that tip somewhere).
Here is my ultimate Bonnaroo packing list. Let me know in the comments if this helped you, what I missed, or whatever else!
