Tennessee Department of Transportation get ready for the 2024 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival – Clarksville Online

Tennessee Department of Transportation - TDOTNashville, TN – Manchester, Tennessee will once again host the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, one of the most popular live music events in the country.

Since 2002, the event has featured a diverse range of artists on a 700-acre farm in Middle Tennessee, which becomes the temporary home for thousands of people from across the country.

More than 65,000 people are expected to attend this year’s festival, which runs from Thursday, June 13, 2024 to Sunday, June 16, 2024.



The area in and around Manchester always experiences a higher volume of traffic during this period. And the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) is gearing up for the extra traffic. TDOT is working closely with the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP), Manchester Police Department, Manchester Fire and Rescue, Coffee County Sheriff’s Department, Coffee County EMA and festival promoters to keep traffic moving on I-24 while also bringing Bonnaroo visitors to get to their destination.

“TDOT has once again worked with our travel agency partners to ensure safe and efficient travel during the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival,” said Deputy Governor and TDOT Commissioner Butch Eley. “The main goal is to keep through traffic flowing smoothly on I-24 while also getting festival goers in and out of the Bonnaroo grounds safely. As a result of this planning, we are confident we can keep traffic delays to a minimum throughout the weekend.”

TDOT HELP units will assist with traffic management during the festival and assist motorists who need assistance.

In addition, TDOT will take the following steps:

  • Efforts will be focused on keeping I-24 traffic flowing.
  • HELP trucks will be on site patrolling interstate and provincial routes throughout the festival region.
  • Exit 111 (SR-55) will be used as the festival’s main exit. In case of congestion on the highway, alternative exits will be used.
  • TDOT maintenance units will be located throughout the festival area and maintenance staff will be on call throughout the weekend.
  • Variable information signs will be installed to warn motorists of delays.
  • No construction-related lane closures on I-24 near the festival between 6:00 AM on Wednesday, June 12, 2024 and 7:00 PM on Monday, June 17, 2024.
  • The center crossings are monitored to prevent motorists from parking on the overpasses and blocking emergency vehicles.
  • Festival traffic will be kept in the right lane and/or on the shoulder of the highway, so that through traffic can use the left lane unhindered.
  • Emergency vehicles will use provincial roads that are kept at low volumes.
  • Temporary communications towers will be installed to improve emergency communications.
