Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, oftentimes referred to as simply "Bonnaroo," is one of the largest annual music festivals in the United States. Inspired by the massive art rock festivals of the late '60s and '70s, Bonnaroo has become a modern-day Woodstock, drawing massive crowds each year for four days of music and entertainment. The fun is not without its drawbacks, however, as heightened police presence typically leads to an increase in arrests during the festival each year.
