The Melon Slice proved that is the ultimate festival bike!  Thanks to it’s low-profile 20” wheels and the fact that it can fold, the Melon Slice was the only bike allowed into the 2010 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival this past weekend.  No familiar with Bonnaroo?  It is a four-day, multi-stage camping music festival that is held every June on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee.  

Bonnaroo brings together some of the best performers in rock and roll, jazz, Americana, hip-hop, electronica, and just about any contemporary music you can think of. In addition to dozens of epic performances, the festival's 100-acre entertainment village buzzes around the clock with attractions and activities.  With all that going on -  it is great to have a bike to ride around on and see the sights and if all you've got is a full-sized bike, it won't be allowed in the gates.

This year 76,000 people were with the Slice at Bonnaroo to see Steve Martin and Conan O'Brien. John Fogerty, Jack Black and John Prine.  Stevie Wonder, Daryl Hall, The Avett Brothers, The Flaming Lips, Jay-Z, Weezer and Ween…just to name a few.  

Featuring insane days of sweat, debauchery and music, its no wonder Rolling Stone magazine named this revolutionary entertainment experience one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll.  And the Slice is changing the way people can get around when they are there!
