Among the latest sacrifices made necessary by the coronavirus pandemic is the 2020 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, which was to take place in Tennessee in June but has now been postponed to September.

The news came on Wednesday, along with this message from festival organizers:

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.
All current tickets and onsite accommodations (camping, tent rentals, RV, etc.) will be honored for the new weekend. 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.
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.

Bonnaroo’s 2020 lineup was pretty stacked, with Tool, Lizzo, Tame Impala headlining a loaded undercard. When the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival was postponed to October a few weeks back, it was hoped to retain the same lineup (or at least a majority of the same acts), and that’s the case again with Bonnaroo.

On Tuesday, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival also announced its postponement to the fall;

But we’re all at the mercy of the developments regarding the coronavirus pandemic and its containment, so it’s anybody’s guess if even rescheduled dates will be met.
