MANCHESTER – Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will not take place in September as rescheduled festival organizers announced on the event’s website. Bonnaroo will now celebrate its 20th Anniversary on June 17-20, 2021.
Bonnaroo organizers stated that “out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff, partners and our community” that the cancellation was a “necessary reality.”
Current ticketholders will have the option to request a refund of tickets and camping accommodations from July 1-31 by logging into their Frontgate account. Ticketholders who opt not to request a refund will have their tickets automatically rolled over to Bonnaroo 2021.
Those who purchased their tickets through the layaway plan will have them automatically refunded, less the $10 non-refundable layaway charge. Those who had purchased other options can get more information here.
Bonnaroo organizers are planning a weekend-long virtual festival on the rescheduled Bonnaroo dates of Sept. 24-27, 2020, featuring some of their favorite moments from past and present, along with some special surprises. Details will be announced soon on the Bonnaroo website.
