Free laundry service at a music festival? Bonnaroo has a stroke of genius

Every year, we see nightmarish photos of sweat-soaked, mud-covered festival goers making rounds on the Internet. Shower facilities solve half the problem, but there wasn’t a solution to bacteria-laden clothing until now: massive American music festival Bonnaroo will be providing free laundry service on site this year.

This year’s Bonnaroo Festival is set to take place from 7 to 10 June in Tennessee, and will feature a lineup of over 150 artists including headliners Eminem, The Killers and Muse

Festival goers will be able to enjoy these mega acts in freshly laundered clothes, as Stereogum reports: they can drop off their dirty linens at a massive 3,600 square-foot laundry site equipped with 25 washing machines and 25 dryers called the ‘LaundROO Lounge’, and pick them up later washed, dried and folded for free. 

The service provider LG is also partnering with New York-based vintage shop 'What Goes Around Comes Around' to bring festival goers a vintage clothing swap station that allows them to swap clothing with one another, or have them exchanged for vintage pieces.

Southeast Asian festivals are great at food and other fun, extra-musical activities that help enhance the music experience – but a laundry service? That's a new one. Start taking notes, guys.
