Definitely get hooked up with the good folks at accessibility if you have not already.

Keeping cool and hydrated are also going to be of major concern...obviously. Outside of the obvious things like wide brim hat, high SPF sunscreen (and plenty of it!), and a camelbak a few things come to mind:

  • Frogg Togg Chilly Pad - wife and I used them a few years changer. Pick up a couple.

  • A personal fan - I don't use one, but, you may find it useful.

    Of course, having a good friend along to help carry stuff and keep an eye on you is also important. I assume you won't partake in any partyfavors, but, I'd feel bad if I didn't drop a reminder not to.

    Other random thoughts:

  • Get comfortable walking shoes and break them in before Bonnaroo
  • Rent an RV if you can swing it. Most in and around the major cities near Bonnaroo (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville) are all long gone by now, but, worthwhile to try and find one. You'll be much more comfortable through the weekend.
  • Remember it is a marathon, not a sprint. When the schedule comes out look over and determine when you'll have good solid gaps to be able to take a break. Centeroo can be overwhelming for anyone and it's good to get some time at the campsite and chill.
  • Get a CamelBak or other hydration system - mine has lasted me 10+ years, brand name is worth it.

    I've never been in accessibility, but, from everything I understand they take extremely good care of everyone. A good friend of mine has gone that way with his brother 3 times and they love it.

    This is everything I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure you've done it, but, definitely talk to your doctors about certain things you should be mindful of while there. I'm sure accesibility is different, but, average Bonnaroovian spends a TON of time on their feet and in the sun. It can be exhausting even for healthy individuals. Partying from noon (or earlier) until 3AM (or later) takes it out of anyone. Just know yourself, your limitations, and priority shows and pace the weekend accordingly.

    Feel free to PM if you have additional questions.

Great thinking! I'll give you my experience with the ones I've used.

First I bought this set from Etymotic for myself and my Croo years ago. For the price they're great and served me quite well at local shows and Roo alike until I lost them at Roo in 2016 (luckily I always carry disposable ones too in case anyone around me in the crowd wants a pair so I wasn't deaf by the end of that Roo). I liked them for the price and the carrying case however they did have some issues like their odd fit for some folks.

After losing the Etymotic's at Roo in 2016 I bought this set from Eargasm pretty much as soon as I got home. They're a bit pricier than the Etymotic's but well worth the price in my opinion. They come with a large and small in ear insert in order to ensure a good fit for most and instead of using a tube and dampening materials like the Etymotic's the Eargasm's actually have a tiny filter that makes for much more even tones/sounds. They also come with a much better carrying case and have yet to have an issue with them in the ~2.5 years I've had them.

Side note about the Eargasm's, their carrying case is a tiny metal canister that comes equipped with a keychain and I take them to every show I go to, I mention this because the canister does look like something you'd house party favors in so the security may have you open the canister up so they can inspect it. I've also found the canister sets off metal detectors so if you do attempt to get through using it as a party favor holder it may come back to bite you. Just figured I'd give you a heads up there since I've gotten many strange looks from security and fellow show goers alike until I open them up and pop the plugs in.

Hopefully this helps! If you've got any questions about either set let me know!

u/Freonr2 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Looks fine, but you can buy two Amazon Basics 10x10 canopies for that price, or a 10x15. Two canopies will take up more room in your car, though. Two 10x10 might be tough to cram into a camp site. Another solution is to drape a tarp from the canopy over your car to give you more shade area. I'd make sure to get good stakes since that wall will catch a lot of wind, but same goes for larger 10x15 canopies.

These (in blue) were on sale for <$70 last year:
Might just put a watch on for it to go on sale. They're not superb quality but plenty good enough for occasional use.

I just got this 10x15 in as an upgrade after taking the above Amazon Basics 10x10 one last year:
It seems pretty good, actually set it up to see how good it is and am happy with it so far. Its not a ton larger to pack since as it is still only 4-leg design. Doesn't come with carry bag like most others. 10x15 will fit no prob in a camp lot, it looks like that swing wall would be fine, too since the wall looks more like 6-8' long.

u/cku18 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I love this idea! I am taking a friend for her first time and am thinking this would be great to make her just so I dont have to be responsible for all the little stuff all the time lol! Also it is always handy to have a permanent marker to sign some of the boards and displays people have. Could throw one in for each of them


They are soap sheets they are the best thing to have and can be perfect for a quick hand wash when you need to feel a little clean in all the dirt and sweat of Bonnaroo

u/0311 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Instapark 10 Watt Solar Panel.

I'm very happy with it. Last year was the first time I used it and even though it was fairly cloudy a good portion of the time, I was still able to use it to charge my phone (Galaxy S3 at the time) and a portable phone charger. In full sunlight it will charge basic devices (phones/chargers/cameras) fairly quickly. It can be used for iPads and other tablets but obviously it takes a bit longer even with good light.

It has loops on each corner, which I used to secure it to whichever corner of our easy up that was getting the most sunlight, and I just let it hang there while we were at camp. There may be better options out there now since I bought this about a year and a half ago, but as I said I'm more than happy with this one.

u/itsalexbro · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Don't use a tent. Use EZ-ups with tarps over the top for sun cover and insulation and use tapestries on the sides for cover but still getting airflow. Airflow and shade are the keys to staying cool at Roo, tents dont really give much in the way of either.

Also, avoid the sleeping bag. Get a cot like this to sleep on. Way more comfortable than sleeping on the ground. I brough a sheet and a quilt last year and folded them in half and slept in the middle like a taco and was warm enough but if I got hot with the sun up I could pull the blankets off and be cool.

Like others have said camping is half the experience and you would definitely be missing out staying at a hotel or airbnb.

u/DTWBagHandler · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I've been using this cot for a few years now. Very comfortable and spacious. Folds up nicely and can handle lots of weight. The foam pad that's also by Teton is very comfortable. If it's really hot I sometimes don't use the foam pad at all and it's still comfortable enough. There's no real pressure points, which helps comfort-wise. When folded up the cot on its own is about the size of a folded ez up. It's about the same size as a twin bed when setup.

u/ismellsogood · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Do you care to link me to the ones you have? I've been looking at a lot of them on Amazon but there's so many options and it's hard to tell about the quality.

For anyone interested, this is the hammock stand I ordered. It has almost perfect reviews, assembles and disassembles in less than 3 minutes, is perfectly made for ENO hammocks, and is the exact right size to fit under a 10x10 EZ-Up. It's also way cheaper than the other options.

u/JoeyBagOfDonuts57 · 8 pointsr/bonnaroo - They have some pretty sweet festival gear.

It's really whatever you're most comfortable in. Just remember during the day, it's going to be HOT. I usually just rock a tank and a bathing suit and a large brimmed hat. I can't stress enough about the large brimmed hat. Some may look ridiculous but it will save you from the sun.

Also get a cooling towel/rag, it will be a LIFE saver -


Happy Roo!!



u/Tomcat87 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

> Do you feel that a cot might be more beneficial than the mattress?

Without question. When you have back pain you need support. Air matresses, while soft, offer very little in the way of support. My SO won't go camping (glamping really) without the cots now. They're far more comfortable. Especially if you throw a couple of nice blankets of them. These are the ones we use. They're considered extra large and the extra space feels great.

u/ushmel · 4 pointsr/bonnaroo

Usually they'll have one of those small honda generators. They're really quiet. You're not supposed to have generators in GA, IIRC, but lol rules. They're hot items for theft too, so be careful.

Alternatively, I've seen people use the power packs like for car emergencies that have the regular plug outlets. They'll die pretty quickly with continuous use, so sometimes people bring a fee, but they're easily $100 each(example: . They take forever to recharge, so it's not likely you'll be able to do it at the park. Or you can get this beast:

The real LPT is engineering a deep cycle battery into a custom made box. Like this:

Most these crews have this stuff laying around from hunting/camping/fishing/etc. So the investment curve is steep for strictly festivals.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/bonnaroo

A mister is a good call. I had one of those pocket fans with a misting spray bottle attached, picked it up for super cheap at a dollar store and it came in handy but I didn't end up using it all that much.

Last year, my friend's girlfriend brought these things called Frog Toggs, it's like a hand towel made of a weird fabric that gets cold when it gets wet. I kept one around the back of my neck and then just wet it again whenever I went to get water. Came in really handy and I was surprised how well it worked.

u/chobby2 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Oooh, I brought this one in 2014 and loveddddd it. Never had any difficulty sleeping due to the heat.

This is the first year I've been able to come back, and since I loved this fan so much, I bought this new tinier fan ( to bring in to Centeroo for whenever I feel like lounging around on a blanket in the back. And because I'm a real psychopath who hates the heat, I bought this even TINIER fan ( to hang around my neck when I'm moving around. Here's hoping it doesn't suck up and rip out my hair lol

u/no-business-here · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Ahh ok, see the one i'm looking at looks more like your original post where the legs are still visible making it easier to clip stuff to.

This is the screened liner i'm talking about:

it's a little pricey but this is the only thing that met all of my requirements.

Its pretty much all screen minus the bottom so lots of airflow, but the PVC bottom is helpful to keep separation from the ground.

u/pholland167 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I've been rocking these for the last few months, and they seem to be doing a great job. I highly recommend using the keychain holder so that you never forget them when going to a show. Can't attest to their headbanging ability, as my best headbanging days are behind me. But they have stayed in during some aggressive head nodding.

u/livesbydryshampoo · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

This will be our third year using these cots and we use them in the tent and don’t have any condensation issues, but the bedding in top does sometimes. They store like folding chairs in a sleeve and are sturdy. I love my husband but I would never sleep in one with him, especially at Roo. Tooooo hot.

u/discoafroman · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

So if you want to buy it in person a Academy or Walmart may work well. I actually got mine from a friend and I believe they got it online. Mine looks exactly like this, each of the pieces comes off and are just straight steel tubes that fit together in a bag or car.

u/cantwealljusgetalong · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Not sure on your financial situation but I purchased this hammock stand and received it in the mail yesterday. I set it up at home and laid in my hammock and it worked well. Easy set up and seems sturdy, however I'm a pretty thing guy. Should do the trick. See ya on the farm!

u/autumndanny13 · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

I have this one
It is killer! I used it as last roo and I fit alot of shit in it.
It does have a "3rd pocket" (I dont think it counts) at the bottom that isn't actually a pocket, It's a net that you can bring out so you can carry a blanket or hoodie/clothing.
I honestly believe they will let this one in, seeing as it only really has 2 pockets. It's super comfy and light! They have other colors other than the red, I have a black/blue one.

I think you can find these cheaper than this on eBay, this was just the first link I saw.... It's the " High Sierra Darter 10L"


u/cassaundraloren · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

This Boy!! I have used it for all of my Roo's with my double eno! Super cheap ($56) and works great. Fits under easy-up

u/ypsigypsi · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

the one I have

Works great and easy set up and take down! Slept like a fuckin baby at Roo last year

u/runningraleigh · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo


I own it, it's amazing, I'm bringing it and putting a tarp over it to sleep. Best idea I ever had.

PS: Try to get it on sale, the price has apparently gone up on Amazon since I got mine.

u/Pterodictyl · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Sadly can't use an Eno style hammock with this stand. That's a nice affordable option, but if you can manage the extra funds this style will be nicer, more sturdy, and more versatile. My oldest one is making it to its 4th Bonnaroo this year, and I recently bought two more to keep in camp for friends to nap in.

u/LRGDNA · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

The first year I used this cotton hammock that I bought with the stand. The second year I used a Mayan hammock that I actually bought at one of the kiosks in centeroo. I really loved the Mayan. I looked up the eno and it should work pretty well. The stand is 9' end to end but is made to work with hammocks up to 15'. Most of the enos run 9'4" so it should fit decently. The actual hooks are further down so you will need short straps to run over the end rails of the stand and hook in.

u/merithynos · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Being up off the ground helps a lot with the heat, as does not being in an enclosed space. This hammock stand:

was fantastic, setup/takedown in five minutes, and I was able to fit it (via the pass-thru) in my two seat convertible.

I might go with a lighter (less warm) hammock next time.

u/djcubicle · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I found this one that uses ~40% of the battery life a night (personal test) for my ResMed Mini. I'll have a solar panel with me to recharge it though. It sounds like the people at the medical tent are super helpful so I'm also toying with the idea of seeing if they'll let me drop it off for a recharge from a 110v outlet.

u/AsifDelawalla · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

First year going to any music festival and incredibly excited to be going to roo. My buddy and I got an EZ Up canopy/tent from dicks for like $50 and I bought a [hammock stand](Best ChoiceProducts Space Saving Steel Hammock Stand 9' Outdoor Patio Portable with Carrying Case to use with my ENO for $55. I got an extra one for my buddy from my boss at work.

We're planning on putting up bedsheets/tapestries all around to avoid sweating at sunrise and getting sunburnt af.

EDIT: Also, from the research I've done, if you have a hammock, it should allow air to run above you and underneath you. Most people say it actually gets kinda chilly for them at night in a hammock.

u/themandober · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

Got a Frogg Toggs version of this two years ago for 'Roo and it helped. It wasn't the be-all-end-all (nothing short of an AC'ed RV is going to be anyway), but it made the difference between suffering and surviving. I can only vouch for Frogg Toggs' version of these towels but it did help to keep me a bit more comfortable in the peak heat.

u/slothzy · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Not too cheap, but I love it. I can use it in my yard also, so justifies the money.

u/tabiyeh · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

this is the one I got. It's compact, easy to set up, and very comfortable in terms of camping sleep.

u/hi_123 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Someone mentioned a coleman cot being the best sleep he's had at roo.

I found this one on Amazon and will likely get it:

u/Aristartle · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Check these out:

They stay wet and cool for pretty much forever, very refreshing to rest on your neck/head...

u/Loudestpipes · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I have this XXL one with the pad. Camped on it 4x so far and it's great.

TETON Sports Outfitter XXL Camping cot -

u/Snops1017 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I'm getting contacts in a few weeks and I plan on bringing both. Keep in mind I've never been to roo either, so I'm not telling you this from experience, but I think contacts during the day to wear with sunglasses with the option to wear glasses at night is the way to go.

Also, since you've never been to a concert before, definitely bring earplugs. Several pairs as backup. Not everyone needs them, but after concerts I get bad tinnitus for a week or so and I can't focus on anything else. I strongly recommend these.

u/JustynCarter · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Order these instead, slightly cheaper and a few more inches square space wise. Comes with a table too!

u/Whiskeyina_teacup · 7 pointsr/bonnaroo

I have the etymotic ones from amazon.

Got them before seeing Basslights (Bassnectar+Pretty Lights) this past year and could not be happier. The sound is still great, but filtered so it is no where near as loud. They have the string and a small plastic carrying case.

In addition, for when you are not at shows I recommend some of the waxy swimming ear plugs. They stick in your ear much better than the foam ones and really help to cut out sound when you are trying to sleep at night.

u/allkatydid · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

I can’t recommend these etymotics enough. They’re cheap enough that you can buy a few pairs in case you lose one, or need to lend to a friend.

If you want to invest long term, you can get custom fit ear plugs. Check out a place near you that makes hearing aids. They typically will mold musicians ear plugs for a little over $100. I did this and it was so worth it. ( not for those who are prone to losing things )

u/Forscyvus · 5 pointsr/bonnaroo

These are made to not make anything sound too weird.

I don't have experience with them though, that's just what I've found from browsing. Reviews seem positive enough.

u/Priv8snoball · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

My girlfriend and I each used one of these last year and they were great. It's obviously not the perfect cot but you should be exhausted when you need it and it's good enough for that.

u/demhippies · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I have a Misty Mate and a Frogg Toggs Towel. I can't handle Bonnaroo heat so I arm myself to the teeth with ways to cool down.

u/Gettinthere6 · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

+1 to the cot. I've been using one for 3 years at Roo and wouldn't think of any other way. Keeps you comfy, no worry about air mattresses deflating or sleeping bags getting too hot. Plus you can stash stuff under them saving all important space. I have one similar to this Texsport Deluxe Folding Camp Cot

All you need is a sheet and a pillow. Maybe a light blanket in case it gets cold like last year. We have a group of 10, after seeing my comfort the first year, most of my group has switched to the cot route too.

u/Orgizm · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Here's what I've brought to multiple festivals. Couldn't recommend more. You can adjust the hooks to make it more or less taut which can help keep your back from getting sore if you're not trying to sleep in a U shape.

u/scottcockerman · 5 pointsr/bonnaroo

One of these fuckers. Drop it into your cooler of ice. Thank me when you get back.

u/shaggyhair · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

We have this at our house. We brought it a couple years ago. Breaks down pretty well and fit into the trunk of a Mazda3 easily. My advice would be to not buy a "compact" hammock stand just because it seems easier. We originally bought one that folds up into one piece. Sort of like one of those shitty camping chairs but a hammock. That thing was terrible and the fabric didn't breathe at all. Top 5 worst Bonnaroo purchases.
