Bonnaroo marks second June festival to face closure over COVID-19
The two-weekend event in Manchester, Tennessee will be postponed until September.
Within minutes on Glastonbury announcing that their 50th anniversary would not be taking place in June, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has announced that their 2020 event would have to be pushed until September 24-27. As one of Live Nation‘s largest festivals, the event is a huge draw for music fans annually, pulling in over 80,000 attendees.
Festival organizers took to their socials to make the announcement hours ago:
“Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be rescheduled to take place September 24-27, 2020 out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff and our community. All current tickets and onsite accommodations (camping, tent rentals, RV, etc.) will be honored for the new weekend. Fans with off-site accommodations and shuttles purchased through the festival will be contacted directly with updates.
Rest assured, we will share updates as quickly as possible via email, our website, and on our social accounts. Please continue to radiate positivity through this uncharted time in our world. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on The Farm this fall.”
The 2020 edition of Bonnaroo was set to have Tool, Miley Cyrus, Bassnectar, Lizzo, Flume, and many more coming to the farm. No word on how many artists will be retained for the September dates, but the month is already looking to be pretty packed with large-scale festivals competing for attendees. Buku Music + Art Project has already claimed Labor Day Weekend for their rescheduled dates and now Bonnaroo has staked their claim on the last weekend in September.
