Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival is the latest music festival to cancel its 2020 run due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Manchester, Tennessee-held festival’s organizers made the announcement on Thursday (June 25). In March, the festival’s dates were initially shifted from its regular June dates to Sept. 24-27, 2020.
“Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will not take place this September 24-27, 2020 as originally rescheduled,” Bonnaroo organizers said in a statement. “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.”
The festival will now be held June 17-20, 2021, and tickets to the 2020 event will be honored for next year, though refunds are also available. The deadline to request a refund is July 31.
The 2020 Bonnaroo performer lineup was to include Lizzo, Brittany Howard, Lana Del Rey, Tool, Tame Impala, and more.
