The 2020 edition of Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has been postponed several months as the world continues with attempts to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19.
The festival was originally scheduled to take place from June 11th–14th in Manchester, TN. According to a statement issued by Bonnaroo organizers, the festival has now been rescheduled to take place from September 24th–27th, 2020. Here’s hoping the festival can retain the many high-profile artists on its original lineup (including TOOL, Lizzo, Oysterhead, Tenacious D, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Run The Jewels, Tame Impala, Vampire Weekend, and many more) for the new dates.

The postponement of Bonnaroo marks the latest festival “domino” to fall in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As events large and small throughout the spring season continue to be canceled and postponed in attempts to curb the spread of the virus, we are now seeing the fallout push further into the summer—which could prove to be the quietest summer in recent memory.
