Bonnaroo Moves To September Due To Coronavirus

Due to concerns over the coronavirus, Bonnaroo has been postponed until September.

Originally scheduled to take place in June, the four-day music and arts festival will now occur September 24th-27th in Manchester, Tennessee.

All current tickets and onsite accommodations will be honored for the new weekend. Those with off-site accommodations and shuttles purchased through the festival will be contacted directly with updates. At this time, it’s unclear if full ticket refunds will be offered.

It’s also unknown which artists will be available to make the new dates. The original Bonnaroo lineup included Tool, Lizzo, Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey, Oysterhead, Flume, Tenacious D, The 1975, and Primus, among others.

Bonnaroo is just one of several festivals affected by the Coronavirus. Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and Shaky Knees have all been postponed, while SXSW, Glastonbury, and Ultra Music Festival were canceled altogether.
