In a few days, Bonnaroo will return to The Farm in Manchester, Tennessee, where the major mainstream festival will be headlined by Eminem, The Killers, Muse, Future, Bassnectar, Sturgill Simpson, and Bon Iver. Over the years, Bonnaroo has become an exemplar for what happens when a music festival goes corporate, with the festival signing on traditional festival sponsors, like breweries and distilleries, in addition to companies as diverse and hilarious as Totino’s Pizza Rolls.
However, in light of Bonnaroo’s new partnership with LG, the festival is boldly forging into new territory, announcing that it will host the LaundROO Lounge, a fully functional laundromat. As reported by The Tennessean, the LaundROO Lounge and Vintage Clothing Swap will take up 3,600 square feet of prime location in Centeroo, right by the big arch. In addition to 25 washers and dryers, the lounge also boasts air condition, phone charging stations, LG TV gaming stations, and indoor and outdoor hang out spots.
However, if you’re trying to get your laundry done at Bonnaroo, you’re likely a busy go-getter plagued by the question, “At a music festival, who has the time to do laundry?!” Well, you’re in luck, because not only is the LaundROO free, it’s also fully serviced, meaning particularly anal festival goers can drop their dirty clothes off at the LaundROO for free, and come back at a given time to receive their accouterments washed, dried, and folded.
The Lounge will also host a swanky vintage-clothing swap, which was curated by New York’s What Goes Around Comes Around, featuring stylists to help attendees truly capture their festival essence—the only thing they have to do is trade the literal clothes on their backs in exchange for their cool, new look. Happily, any leftover clothes after the weekend will be donated to United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.
