It was a busy third day Saturday (6/15/2019) for MTSU's College of Media and Entertainment students at Bonnaroo -- writing stories, interview artists, and capturing concerts on video at the Who Stage.

Also on Saturday, a 27-year old male was found unresponsive at a Bonnaroo campsite. The Coffee County Sheriffs Office is investigating, but they noted that foul play was not suspected as he reportedly had a medical issue. He was transported to Unity Hospital in Manchester where he died.

A team of about 35 student multimedia communicators are working and earning college credit at the music and arts festival, which Dean Ken Paulson calls his "Bonnaroo campus." It's MTSU's sixth year in its partnership with Bonnaroo.

Video and film production and photography majors from the Department of Media Arts and audio production majors from the Department of Recording Industry were capturing performance of emerging artists on Bonnaroo's Who Stage, while multimedia majors from the School of Journalism and Strategic Media were covering acts for area media outlets.

"The pace doesn't let up for our students and faculty at Bonnaroo," said MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee.
