Bonnaroo Squarch Has Attendees Asking What’s Going On


Exactly three weeks ago, Bonnaroo burned its iconic arch to the ground. Bonnaroo issued a statement, “This incarnation of the Bonnaroo Arch had significant structural issues and needed to be removed. The Arch has changed throughout the years, and we’re exited for its newest incarnation.”

“Its newest incarnation” as Bonnaroo put it is what attendees are now referring to as the Bonnaroo squarch – a portmanteau for square and arch. See below.

The blocky, unsightly entrance to the festival is affixed with LED panels on the front that will have it changing design throughout the festival. See some of the initial fan reactions below

@bonnaroonews provides some reference for what the squarch looks like at night, seen attempting to emulate the iconic arch known to fans for years. But then… why not just build an LED arch?

Bonnaroo officially begins today and goes through Sunday. Headliners include Childish GambinoPost Malone and ODESZA, plus The Lumineers and Grand Ole Opry as well as three unique sets from Phish.
