Exit 111 Festival
Concert goers slowly emerged from their tents and motorhomes for the final day of the Exit 111 Festival after near-freezing temperatures engulfed the Great Stage Park in Manchester the night before. The coffee truck in the campgrounds was the most popular place to hang out int the morning, but by the time the music got underway just after noon, the area warmed to a spectacularly sunny Sunday afternoon.
Day 2 of the first annual Exit 111 Festival in Manchester Tennessee turned bright and sunny after a chilly drizzly morning. By the time the music began just before 1 pm, warm sunshine had begun to bathe the venue, offering a comfortable backdrop to the longest day of the three-day event. The sports bar had been open since 9 am and was filled with passionate alcohol-infused fans cheering on their various teams.
The first Exit 111 Festival debuted on a muggy Friday, October 11. T-shirt weather prevailed as the doors opened just after 1 pm and music fans began to stream in to find spots close to the three stages before the 3 pm start times. The festival took advantage of the Bonnaroo Festival infrastructure, utilizing the two main stages, renaming them the Heaven and Hell stages. One of the tent stages became the third stage at Exit 111.
