Bonnaroo 2013 started Thursday and this four-day immersion in music on a 700-acre Tennessee farm sold out once again. Thousands of fans poured into the Manchester area expecting the top-rated music event to live up to the festival’s name, which means "have a really good time."

Launched in 2002 by SuperFly Presents and AC Entertainment, Bonnaroo draws musicians from just about every genre.

This year’s line-up guaranteed a sell-out event (and tickets were gone by April), with musicians playing from mid-day to the early morning hours.

If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket, look for Paul McCartney, ZZ Top, Dwight Yoakam and "Weird Al: Yankovic to be mixed in with groups just beginning the rocky climb to stardom. Multiple stages mean entertainment for every taste in always available.

Starting Wednesday, Bonnaroo will draw what the website calls “80,000 happy campers.”  A Bonnaroovian Code, spelled out on the website, will help festival-goers “make the most of the Bonnaroo adventure.”

The Travel Channel is even getting in on the act, seeking die-hard Bonnaroo fans for a new show on festivals and fan-dom.

If you bring mouthwatering food, an unbelievable tailgate setup, one-of-a-kind traditions, the best parties, or celebrate with the Roll Like A Rockstar package, then Travel Channel wants to hear from you!” the site said.

Twitter and other social media sites are lit up with people on their way to Bonnaroo 2013 or bemoaning the fact that they’re not going to be there.

Don’t worry about being out of touch with your friends and family lucky enough to attend. Bonnaroo, Facebook and Instagram created a new social partnership to spread the fun. Billboardbiz.com announced the 80,000-plus attendees will contribute to a crowd-sourced documentary and can “automatically brag on Facebook about watching their favorite artists.”

Every Bonnaroo ticketholder has an RFID chip in their wristband with the option of registering it on Facebook. Attendees connected to their parents on FB might want to think about that carefully.
