Bonnaroo announced in a statement on Twitter that it would be rescheduling its three-day festival to Sept. 2-5, 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns.
This marks the third time the three-day, Tennessee festival has rescheduled its dates. The festival made an announcement back in June that it would be postponing its dates in 2021 when it announced that it would be making its 2020 edition virtual.
Bonnaroo 2020 followed the format of what many other festivals did this year by providing a virtual event of the highlights of its previous editions. The festival dug from the archives, previous performances by Alabama Shakes (2015); Dave Mathews and Friends (2014); Jack White (2014); James Brown (2003) Metallica (2008); The White Stripes (2007); The xx (2017); and of course The Beastie Boys’ final performance in 2009 to name a few.
Bonaroo has assured ticket holders that refunds will be issued to those who do not wish to use their passes on the rescheduled dates.
Lineup and details for the 2021 event are expected to be released when it gets sooner to Sept. next year. For additional information, please visit the festival’s official webpage at the following link.
