Belmont At Bonnaroo
Belmont University students got real-world music industry experience by studying the behind-the-scenes workings of one of Tennessee’s most popular music festivals, Bonnaroo. 20 students signed up for “Belmont at Bonnaroo,” a new program led by Dr. Sarita Stewart and Dr. Ken Spring. The curriculum combines two co-curricular classes, “Research Methods and Festival Culture,” and “Sociology of Music.”
Throughout the four-day festival June 7-10, the 20-member class and two faculty members planted themselves on tour buses behind the festival’s main stage. Every day four groups of five students each would wander throughout the festival site to find attendees to interview, seeking to gain insights into four areas Stewart described, all critical to the future of festivals and the music business at large. In addition to their on-site research, students also attended classes each day in the Bonnaroo press tent with their faculty and Artists/Executives in Residence, including Bonnaroo founder Ashley Capps, Khalid manager Courtney Stewart and C3 promoter Amy Corbin, among others.
