Bonnaroo 2019 is set to bring back their women-only camping area to the Manchester, Tennessee festival. The camping space, called SheRoo, is a designated community for women, female-identifying, and non-binary individuals.
Originally piloted in 2017, SheRoo is a spot for women to relax in during their four-day festival experience. The camping space is curated by the producers of Mothership Women’s Festival in Los Angeles, who specialize in making women’s spaces with feminism in mind. For 2019, SheRoo will include self-defence classes, body-positive yoga, a kombucha bar, collaborative art projects, and body glitter sparkle stations.
SheRoo will also feature a main tent open to all festival attendees during certain times so that everyone can partake in the experiences and conversations about women empowerment in music.

“We want all women and non-binary individuals to feel welcome in the SheRoo space,” Mothership founder Laura Wise explained to Billboard. “We sprinkle the experience with icebreakers and community builders for participants to make new connections.”
Bonnaroo will take place in Tennessee from June 13th to 16th featuring headliners Phish, Childish Gambino, Post Malone, and The Lumineers.
