Bonnaroo festival fixes computer glitch, will resume online ticket sales
MANCHESTER, TN (WRCB) -- One of the largest musical festivals in the country, Bonnaroo in nearby Manchester, will relaunch their online ticketing system this Saturday.
The festival had been forced to halt sales for the four-day event during the first day of ticket sales this past Saturday because of what organizers said was "overwhelming demand" leading to major technical problems.
On a posting on their website Tuesday, they said the ticketing issues had been "identified and fixed" and they plan to resume ticket sales this Saturday at Noon, Eastern time.
The festival, which is held annually in June in Manchester, about 65 miles southeast of Nashville, features a lineup this year that includes the reunited Beach Boys, along with Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish and Bon Iver.
