The 2020 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The event was originally set to run June 11-14 at Manchester, Tennessee’s Great Stage Park. It has now been rescheduled for Sept. 24-27. Artists in the lineup include Lizzo, Tame Impala, The Weeknd, Lana Del Rey, Tool, Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Run the Jewels and Brittany Howard.
Bonnaroo shared the news Wednesday in a statement via its Instagram page, writing, “Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be rescheduled to take place September 24-27, 2020 out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff and our community. All current tickets and onsite accommodations (camping, tent rentals, RV, etc.) will be honored for the new weekend. Fans with off-site accommodations and shuttles purchased through the festival will be contacted directly with updates.”
The statement continued: “Rest assured, we will share updates as quickly as possible via email, our website and on our social accounts. Please continue to radiate positivity through this uncharted time in our world. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on The Farm this fall.”
