The 2020 edition of Bonnaroo has been postponed, being pushed back from June into September. This follows a wave of other festivals around the world that have been forced to move over coronavirus concerns, as Glastonbury, Coachella, and others make new plans.
“Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be rescheduled to take place September 24-27, 2020 out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff and our community,” organizers shared in a statement. “Please continue to radiate positivity through this uncharted time in our world. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on The Farm this fall.”
Earlier on Wednesday, the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury in the UK was cancelled, citing concerns for staff preparing for the June event. "We very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously by the end of June. But even if it has, we are no longer able to spend the next three months with thousands of crew here on the farm, helping us with the enormous job of building the infrastructure and attractions needed to welcome more than 200,000 people to a temporary city in these fields," they explained.
