    Open to interpretation, but 225,000 fans implies 225,000 different people, when in fact its the same 75,000 per day give or take.

    I would be more interested to know the approximate profit. Goldenvoice didn't net $21.7 million, but I'm sure they made a pretty penny.

    Guesstimates anyone?

    75,000 multiplied by $300 is 22 million and change. You are forgetting they are not even counting merch sales, camping revenue, food sold......

    They probably paid artists and staff about 20 mil. That's still a cool profit.

    I will go with what you posted because I tried to find the Roo's gross but could only find this:

    Bonnaroo organizers Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment didn't report 2009 festival figures to Billboard Boxscore this year, but Billboard estimates 80,000 people attended, and between $17-$18 million in gross revenue, making it the top-grossing festival in North America as it has been since its inception.
