Bonnaroo shifts to new fall dates amid COVID-19 fallout
Bonnaroo is picking up and replanting its flag in the fall amid the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. With the CDC and government officials recommending gatherings of 10 people or less for a minimum of eight weeks, the festival’s summer dates, originally slated for June 11 – 14, are not feasible at this point. Instead, Bonnaroo will now take place September 24 – 27.
Live Nation, which just postponed all of its ongoing national and international tours, also recently finalized its acquisition of Bonnaroo in February, so the move to push the festival back comes as no surprise. Bonnaroo’s postponement new comes hot off the heels of the announcement that Glastonbury would be gutting its 50th anniversary edition, mere days after revealing the lineup. Bonnaroo is expected to reveal additional details soon, though, previously purchased tickets, camping rentals, and more will be honored for the new dates. With another crown jewel of summer now planning to run in the fall, this year’s festival season looks to heat up as soon as things start cooling down.
