Arts & Culture

There's no place like Tennessee to inspire artistic expression, from great music to traditional crafts, from storytelling to fine art.

Tennessee is calling you to enjoy great entertainment in music and performing arts, with beautiful historic theaters and unique music venues throughout the state, from the blues on the banks of the Mississippi, to the world-famous recording studios of Nashville, to the haunting sounds of traditional mountain music in the east.

Bonnaroo Music and Art festival has been given the "Outstanding Greener Festival" award by agreenerfestival.com, "authority on all things green in the live music industry around the world."

The "Outstanding Greener Festival" is the highest accolade one can receive, and was awarded to Bonnaroo this year along with only six other festivals globally. Bonnaroo has, since inception, attempted to change the direction of the concert industry by implementing carbon-conscious practices and emphasizing the importance of minding waste and excess while still enjoying great music.
