About the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival®
Imagine a magical, peaceful city of 80,000 happy people that pops up out of a 700-acre Tennessee farm for a long weekend every June. Fill it with multiple stages jumping with 150+ acts playing music almost 24 hours a day for four straight days; including some of the greatest music legends there are and strong up-and-comers. In addition to music, Bonnaroo boasts a robust Comedy Theatre and The Cinema Tent with 24 hours a day of films that also features live appearances by very special guest filmmakers, actors, and more. There are visual arts, the Silent Disco, The Silent Auction, Planet Roo, the Fountain, the Arch and more. This is all just one part of what makes Bonnaroo, Bonnaroo.
The other part—the most important part—is the unique “Bonnaroo vibe.” Bonnaroovians form a true community, filled with discovery, generosity, spontaneity, social consciousness and genuine kindness. It changes people in a way that changes the world. Ziggy Marley put it best, “Bonnaroo is not an entertainment thing,” he said. “It’s a people thing.”
Each artist will be applying to create a site-specific sculpture/kinetic mobile for two individual skylights that will be located adjacent to one another on concourses throughout the Nashville International Airport. There are 3 sets of skylights, Concourse A, B and C. Each application will be for one set of skylights. The skylights have glass panels and are open to the exposed sky, UV protective glass is not installed and exposure to extreme sunlight is possible. There is a weight limit of 300 lbs. per sculpture, per skylight. See Exhibit A for specific dimensions of each set of skylights and locations of anchoring devices within the skylights. Toggle bolts secured in drywall can be added for additional anchoring materials.
Selected artists or organizations will be recognized on the Bonnaroo website (bonnaroo.com), social media, and in an email promoting the installation. Artist and installation will also be promoted through the Arts at the Airport social media channels and the Nashville International Airport website (flynashville.com).
