Bonnaroo announces colossal line-up for 2021 return: Tipper, Glass Animals, deadmau5, Lucii, & many more
Following its double–postponement in 2020 due to COVID-19, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival shuddered the music world today with the announcement of a colossal 2021 lineup. Scheduled to run September 2-5, this year’s event marks the 20th year of the festival giant in Manchester, Tennessee.
Bonnaroo organizers have already announced two headliners apiece for their 2021 return, with Foo Fighters and Megan Thee Stallion on Friday, Lizzo and Tame Impala on Saturday, and Tyler, The Creator and Lana Del Rey on Sunday. The opening-night lineup for Thursday features the Grand Ole Opry as the headliner, and British jazz saxophone star Nubya Garcia on the bill.
In the EDM arena, small though it may seem to outsiders, the Manchester-based festival managed to book a vast array of artist from all across the dance music spectrum. Tipper, Glass Animals, Big Wild, TroyBoi, SVDDEN DEATH, Lucii, ATLiens, Detox Unit, Tripp St., and NotLö all take to the stage on Friday, September 3.
The following day sees Seven Lions, Subtronics, Marc Rebillet, Ekali, Wooli, Dr. Fresch, William Black, Level Up, and LICK on September 4. The final day, deadmau5, Boombox Cartel, PEEKABOO, LSDREAM, LUZCID, and Elderbrook will each bring the heat to close out the weekend.
In terms of health precautions, festival organizers say they are in contact with local health and public safety officials, and “intend to abide by relevant recommendations to ensure a safe and enjoyable festival,” according to the Bonnaroo website. A “COVID-19 WARNING” section of the site says that organizers have taken enhanced health and safety measures for its attendees, although fans and critics of Bonnaroo alike are still in need of knowing “just what” those safety measures entail.
