NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

There's music to be had all over Middle Tennessee this week!

Not only are thousands of country music fans flocking to Nashville for the CMA Music Festival, but Bonnaroo also kicks off Thursday night in Manchester.

If you're driving on Interstate 24 in Coffee County, plan ahead for delays and extra traffic as thousands of fans head to the farm.

Exit 111 (State Route 55) is the main festival exit. Exits 97, 105, 112 (temporary exit on westbound side only), 117 and 127 are alternate exits. Click here to see a detailed detour map.

Festival traffic will be kept in the right lane and/or on the shoulder of I-24, which should allow drivers to use the left lane with fewer delays.

TDOT, THP, the Manchester Police Department and the Coffee County Sheriff's Office will all be working to help keep traffic moving on I-24. THP troopers have been patrolling on the ground and by air since Wednesday night.

Bonnaroo officially opened all of its gates on Wednesday night to allow more time for fans and their vehicles to access the campgrounds.

The festival's lineup includes 130 acts, including U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Weeknd.

Bonnaroo runs through Sunday, and tickets are still up for grabs. Click here for more information.
