This year, Bonnaroo is offering two performance slots exclusively to Sonicbids artists. Selected artists will be invited to perform at the annual four-day, multi-stage festival alongside acts like Elton John, Kanye West and Jack White. In addition to playing for more than 90,000 fans, bands will receive $1000 in compensation and be included in a variety of high-profile event materials (including a full-page bio on the official Bonnaroo website) and press opportunities.
Submissions are open to Sonicbids artists worldwide. Submissions close April 25, 2014.
Net proceeds from the $10 submission fee will be donated directly to the Bonnaroo Works Fund, which supports various national and local non-profits.

"Bonnaroo was the most amazing experience of my entire life. I cant believe it happened, we sold a ton of CDs and gained a lot of new fans."
-- Andrea Belanger, Sonicbids artist & Bonnaroo 2011 performer
"Think about the best sounding stage you've ever played, and a virtually endless audience...that was performing at Bonnaroo. An unbelievable experience."
