On June 10, 2005, 75,000-plus music fans descended on the rural community of Manchester, Tennessee (just outside Nashville) for 3 days of outdoor festival activities known as Bonnaroo. Epiphone was on hand, participating in the Gibson/Epiphone booth and of course on stage.

Since its inception in 2002, Bonnaroo has become a landmark event revered as “Festival of the Year” by Pollstar, Spin, Billboard and Rolling Stone.

As usual, the Gibson/Epiphone booth was one of the most popular "hang-outs".
