The new September dates for Bonnaroo 2020 are still scheduled to go on as planned.
Due to health concerns created by the coronavirus pandemic, the four-day festival in Manchester, which is on its 18th year, was rescheduled from its customary time in June to Sept. 24-27.
This upcoming weekend, beginning Thursday, June 11 to Sunday, June 14, would be the original dates to enjoy music, dancing, camping and community among over 80,000 attendees.
“All current tickets and onsite accommodations (camping, tent rentals, RV, etc.) will be honored for the new weekend,” Bonnaroo said in a statement released Wednesday. “Fans with off-site accommodations and shuttles purchased through the festival will be contacted directly with updates. Rest assured, we will share updates as quickly as possible via email, our website and on our social accounts.”
Tickets for this year’s festival sold out in the quickest amount of time in Bonnaroo history. Headliners include Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Tool, Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey and the Grand Ole Opry.
Although this season of Bonnaroo has changed, another festival held at the same location, Exit 111, occurred last October on the 700-acre farm, but organizers say it will not return for a second year.
“Please continue to radiate positivity through this uncharted time in our world,” Bonnaroo said in its statement. “Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you on The Farm this fall.”
