“Perhaps no sight was more surreal at this year’s Bonnaroo than seeing the Grand Ole Opry sprout up in all its glory on one corner of the concert grounds,”
reported The Tennessean

The Grand Ole Opry staged its first-ever show from the famed Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN last night featuring Opry members Old Crow Medicine Show, Bobby Bare, Del McCoury Band, and Riders In The Sky, as well as Joshua Hedley, LANCO, Nikki Lane, and Maggie Rose. The Nashville-based Opry has rarely in its 92-year history taken its iconic show outside Music City, on those occasions visiting prestigious venues such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center.
