Bonnaroo's 14th Annual Music and Arts Festival is officially on the horizon, taking place June 11 to 14, 2015 in Manchester, TN! This year's lineup is arguably one of the best yet, featuring Billy Joel, Kendrick Lamar, Mumford & Sons, Deadmau5, My Morning Jacket, Childish Gambino, Spoon – and most importantly, two spots reserved exclusively for Sonicbids artists!
Bonnaroo Battle of the Bracket
Submit to the Bonnaroo Battle of the Bracket for FREE for the opportunity to be reviewed by a panel of expert industry curators, including Jonnie Davis (Senior VP/A&R at Round Hill Music), American Authors, Rick Barker (former manager for Taylor Swift and founder of Music Industry Blueprint), Steve Rennie (longtime manager of Incubus and founder of Renman Music & Business), Grammy Award-winning producer Prince Charles Alexander, Amy Sciarretto of Atom Splitter PR, Steven Smith of Going Off Track and Fan Connection, Janelle Rogers of Green Light Go Publicity, Dave Kusek of the New Artist Model, and more.
