Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has been officially rescheduled. The festival was originally planned to take place on June 11-14. Now, due to coronavirus, Bonnaroo will take place Sep. 24-27. 

The news comes shortly after another June festival, Glastonbury, completely canceled their 50th-anniversary festival for 2020.

Unlike many of the other announcements that have come in the wake of coronavirus, Bonnaroo elected to not publish a postponement update first and then a rescheduling post. Instead, they elected to simply get all of their ducks in a row and then give the news to the world.

Bonnaroo took to social media to post a lengthy statement on the rescheduling. 

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.

It is unknown whether or not Hayley Williams‘ Sanctuary of Self Love will return for the new dates. We’re sure Williams, as well as Bonnaroo will give an update soon.

Last year, The Sanctuary of Self Love featured mini-spa treatments, glitter stations and flower crowns.

In addition, Services In The Sanctuary had themed dance parties, alternative therapies and panels on mental health and self-love. Bonnaroo promised that it’s going to be even bigger and better this year.
