The Saturday Independent, a Coffee County newspaper located in the heart of this weekend’s Bonnaroo festivities, breaks down the economic value that the world-renowned music festival brings to the surrounding area. Some excerpts:

“$22 million - Lodging, food, transportation and entertainment spent by festival-goers as a whole.

191 - Nearly 200 new jobs were created in Coffee County during the months leading up to and after the festival.”
