    ... 'Cause Bonnaroo is a much bigger and more popular festival than Lolla these days...

    not sure why you think North Murfreesboro/Rutherford county is crime riddled. Its fine. Lived in the area for +20 years now. Should you set your wallet on top of your mailbox and go for a jog - No of course not, but what crime I am aware of was obvious just punks with nothing better to do. Worst that happened to me was water hose thrown over my own fence - kinda quickly weaved a couple of times.

    Domestic crap happens everywhere so eeeh. If you see crime stats out of whack for the area remember Lake Forrest Estates is responsible for like 90% of everything bad in Rutherford county - dont live there its a predesigned slum

    How have you never heard of Bonnaroo? Haven't been to the boro in like a decade. It was fun back then. There will be things to do. It is not a murder capital. You'll be good.

    I remember the first year of Bonnaroo. I want to say '99 maybe..?

    It was started as nothing like it is now. Crazy. It was originally geared toward an almost 80's style rock "reunion" festival. I felt it would suck then... but it evolved a lot.

    Stuff I read online had bad reports on crime in Murfreesboro. Everyone on here says it's not that bad. So I ain't worried!

    Music isn't really my thing. I mean, I listen to it - but going to festivals, concerts, & things like that never really hyped me up like alot of people. That and i'm an idiot.

    Actually it was more like a hippie/jam band festival. Widespread Panic, Phil Lesh, Trey Anastasio, those types were the main draws.

    Yeah I've never thought of the Boro as some crime-riddled area. I lived there for a few years (about a decade ago) and never had a single problem. It's a pretty fun town.

    Actually no. I said 1999. I see it wasn't called Bonnaroo then. It was the precursor to it - Itchycoo Festival.

    That's what I was actually referring to. Just named it wrong.

    Essentially, that became what we know as Bonnaroo. Itchycoo Festival failed shortly after.

    Oh okay. Never heard of that one. I just know those guys I listed were the headliners at the first Bonnaroo. And even that was a very different festival than what it has become.

    Man... I drove through Murfreesboro on my way to Bonnaroo earlier this year and it seemed like a quiet, safe suburb to me. I remember saying out loud that I wouldn't mind living there. Crime is a big problem there? Maybe I read it all wrong. Of course, I do live in a suburb of Toronto that has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, so maybe my perception is just warped.
