Those holding out hope to make the trip down to Manchester, TN this September got their answer as Bonnaroo has officially canceled its 2020 event.
The festival was originally rescheduled from its traditional June weekend to September 24-27 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“All ticket holders will receive an email with info on how to roll your ticket over to the 2021 festival or receive a refund,” the fest wrote in a tweet.
There’s no word yet on whether or not the same lineup will carry over to 2021.
“Our annual time together on the Farm is nothing short of magical, but out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff, partners and our community, this is a necessary reality,” the festival said in a statement on its website.
In lieu of getting together in person, Bonnaroo will be holding a weekend-long virtual festival on the same rescheduled dates (September 24-27) it was supposed to take place. The fest promises “some of our favorite moments from past and present, along with some special surprises.”
Details about the virtual gathering will be announced soon.
Bonnaroo is the latest music festival to get canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic as both Coachella and Lollapalooza made similar announcements within the past few weeks. Despite the cancelations of these other festivals, there is a rock music fest set to take place in Wisconsin this July.
