Ways to Avoid an Arrest at Bonnaroo

If you plan on attending Bonnaroo festival this year, it is vital you remain aware of the elevated police presence and take certain precautions to stay safe. There are several ways that you can avoid an unwanted run-in with the law, including:

  1. Stay attentive: Be on the lookout for law enforcement and any illegal activities that may be going on around you. If you see something suspicious, keep your distance. Most importantly, do not ever purchase or hold drugs for or from someone you do not know.
  2. Drink plenty of water: Bonnaroo is held in the middle of summer and temperatures frequently reach 90 degrees Fahrenheit and above. Hot temperatures can cause you to lose water through sweat and hinder your body’s ability to process alcohol, causing you to become intoxicated more easily. Staying hydrated can not only protect you against heatstroke, but it could also save you from an arrest for public intoxication or unruly behavior.
  3. Stay calm: While Bonnaroo is meant to be a fun time, it can get a little rowdy at times. Keep your composure and stick with people you know. If anyone attempts to agitate you or start a fight, walk away. Getting into a physical altercation with another festival-goer can get you thrown out of the festival and in the back of a squad car on assault charges.
