Bonnaroo named "Festival of the Year" by Consequence of Sound
Festival of the Year Bonnaroo Evolved and Triumphed in 2019
The Tennessee festival found creative ways to connect to generations old and new this year

We continue our celebration of the very best music, film, and television of the year today with the unveiling of our 2019 Festival of the Year.
Just last year, we at Consequence of Sound announced “The End of Bonnaroo As We Knew It.” The once great festival, born at the beginning of a millennium, seemed to experience a loss of identity as well as plummeting ticket sales in recent years. However, in 2019, we were happily proven wrong and can proudly proclaim that Bonnaroo is not only alive and well in Manchester, Tennessee, but worthy of the title Festival of the Year!
