The Pittsburgh resident's passing marks the ninth death to occur at the event.

A 32-year-old woman was found dead at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival late Thursday.

They also found some loaded guns wrapped in a Black Liberation Army flag hidden in a trashcan at a local motel. I still haven't heard any outcome of that, and they may never know where they came from or why they were there.

Hundreds of people were treated at the local hospital for heat stroke, alcohol poisoning, drug-overdoses or a combination thereof.

There were five people life-flighted to Nashville the first night they opened up the campgrounds and concert hadn't even started yet. I haven't heard a total yet.

I do have to say the traffic issues were better this year than in the past. The changes they made in the traffic patterns helped a lot.

I also would like to say that the EMS and law enforcement people (Coffee County Sheriff's Dept., Manchester City Police, and Tennessee State Troopers) did a great job.

Now most folks in Manchester can breathe a sigh of relief.

Now that it's over we can all drive without being pulled over for silly reasons too. I was headed to town yesterday and couldn't figure out why in the world there was so much traffic enforcement out. Then it hit me. Bonaroo. *sigh*

As a side note, no, I was not pulled over. But I did see cars lined up headed from Sparta through McMinnville on 70 that were. I can only imagine how much pot they found this weekend. LOL

You got that right. This was in the Cookeville paper:

Well, some of the final stats on Bonnaroo are in...

2 dead. (Another died last night from something that occurred at the concert...the radio was specific.)

Over 1500 treated for heat stroke.

Just over 60 arrests.

Over 300 citations issued.

This year's Bonnaroo is estimated to have pumped around 40 million dollars into the local economy. Of course, the mayor put into perspective..."It's not like they wrote us a check for $20,000,000."

Yes, those are big numbers on bad things, and you sure wish it wouldn't happen. But, all in all, not bad for an estimated 80,000 people over 3-4 days. No way would a comparably sized city have such low citation and arrest stats.

They may have lower heat stroke rates...

As someone who has experienced Bonnaroo first hand, I would have to say that it is a very good thing for 80,000 people to be so well behaved. Of course there is the drug crime...but from my experience they really only target the more egregious offenders (dealers). Bonnaroo is a very, very safe and friendly atmosphere. I never felt uncomfortable leaving the campsite unattended. That was one of the beautiful things about it.

While some of the visitors might not fit in with the locals on a regular basis, the relative peace kept throughout the festival, along with the massive economic impact are enough for the locals to put up with it.

It's a good festival, and I think a great asset for Tennessee to have.

Curious that they have to schedule it and Fanfare (CMA Fest) at the same time, though.

Perhaps they figure that either 'side' will be too busy with it's thing to worry about what the other side is doing?

Although there isn't a lot, there is SOME crossover. Anyways, I'm sure it made for a crazy Monday at BNA.
