Bonnaroo 2020 canceled

Special virtual celebration will take place instead

The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will not take place this September 24-27, 2020 as originally rescheduled, organizers confirm on Thursday (June 25th).

“Our annual time together on the Farm is nothing short of magical, but out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff, partners and our community, this is a necessary reality,” they share.

“Bonnaroo will return to the Farm on June 17-20, 2021 to celebrate our 20th anniversary. More information on lineup, camping and accommodations will be available at a later date. All current ticket holders will receive an email shortly with information on how to roll your ticket over to the 2021 festival, or receive a refund.

“While we can’t be together on the Farm this year, we’re going to bring the Farm to you! Keep September 24-27, 2020 on your calendars for a very special virtual Bonnaroo weekend including some of our favorite moments from past and present, along with some special surprises. Details will be coming soon.”

The annual event was initially postponed from June to September following COVID-19. The internationally acclaimed four-day multi-stage camping festival was initially scheduled for June 11-14th at Great Stage Park, the spectacular 700-acre farm and event space located just 60 miles southeast of Nashville in Manchester, TN.

Tool, Miley Cyrus, Bassnectar, The 1975, Run The Jewels, Lizzo, Flume, Tenacious D, Tame Impala, Lana del Rey, Vampire Weekend, Leon Bridges and Grand Ole Opry are among the 2020 headliners. No word if the lineup will change for 2021.
