Bonnaroo began in June of 2002, making it slightly younger than Complex, but certainly no less significant to music. Created by Mark Barr for AC Entertainment, the annual festival is held at the 700-acre Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tenn., making Bonnaroo the largest outdoor festival in North America. Booking artists ranging from Radiohead and the White Stripes to Jay-Z and Kanye West, Bonnaroo spans all genres. Last year, J.Cole, Lil Wayne, and Eminem all performed over the long weekend in early June.
