Exit 111 Festival, the rock fest which celebrated its inaugural event on the Bonnaroo grounds in Manchester, TN this year, will not return for a second year in 2020. The announcement that Exit 111 will not be back next year was shared via the festival’s social media accounts on Friday.
As the festival noted, “Exit 111 Music Festival will not return in 2020. We would like to thank all the incredible fans and road warriors who rocked and camped with us this year.”
The inaugural edition of the festival took place on The Farm in mid-October and featured headlining performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard, and Guns N’ Roses as well as performances by Megadeth, Slayer, Black Label Society, Bishop Gunn, ZZ Top, Ghost, Mastodon, Cheap Trick, Blackberry Smoke, Deftones, Coheed and Cambria, Lamb of God, and many more.
Fans at the 2019 event braved chilly temperatures alongside the rock fireworks, as thermometers dropped below 40 degrees at night during the festival.
