Bonnaroo crowds keep cool despite schedule change

MANCHESTER, TN (WSMV) -

The sun is blazing and the bands are blaring at day two of Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN.

More than 80,000 people are on the farm this year, where artists help them make their own instruments, fountains let them splash in the water and cool off and bands keep the music playing well into the night.

The four-day music festival took a big hit Thursday when one of the headliners, Mumford & Sons, called off their Saturday set due to a band member's emergency surgery, but it doesn't seem like folks are letting the bad news ruin their good time.

Festival organizers scrambled to fill the void and asked Grammy-nominated musician Jack Johnson to play in their place.

Johnson, who was already planning to make a guest appearance at Bonnaroo, will now headline Saturday at 9:30 p.m.

The Coffee County Sheriff's Office said that the cool weather has helped keep tempers cooler, too. Sheriff's office officials said they have issued about 193 citations so far, and made 14 arrests. Of the arrests, only one was for disorderly conduct, and the rest were for drug offenses.
