When Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival pushed their annual June weekend dates to September 2020, the announcement came in March and no one could have expected the Coronavirus pandemic to last well into summer. With the virus spreading across the US, with spikes surging in Texas, Arkansas, Florida, Arizona, Utah, and all over the south, festivals for 2020 have essentially been canceled. Now Bonnaroo has officially postponed their annual event in Manchester, Tennessee to June 17-20, 2021.
Bonnaroo organizers are now putting plans in place for ticket buyers to get refunds or to roll the tickets over for next year’s festival. They had the following to say in a statement,
“Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will not take place this September 24-27, 2020 as originally rescheduled. 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. More information on lineup, camping and accommodations will be available at a later date.”
There is a bit of good news, however. Bonnaroo announced a virtual festival from September 24-27, and those who roll over their tickets to 2021 can access the event for free. The virtual event, according to their website, will include “some of our favorite moments from past and present, along with some special surprises.”
More information for the virtual festival is coming soon. Find all the info on refunds and rollovers here.
Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will not take place this September 24-27, 2020 as originally rescheduled.
