Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will not take place again this year. The festival announced in an email and via social media that it would be canceling the event in the days leading up to its launch. Instead of being shut down for COVID like in 2020, this year it’s because of heavy rain.
Bonnaroo has faced flooding from the rain that is impacting most of the southeast due to Hurricane Ida.
In the email, they said, “While this weekend’s weather looks outstanding, currently Centeroo is waterlogged in many areas, the ground is incredibly saturated on our tollbooth paths, and the campgrounds are flooded to the point that we are unable to drive in or park vehicles safely.”
This past day in Middle Tennessee has been raining nonstop, contributing to the flooding that has led them to deem the grounds unfit for concerts this year.
The event was supposed to take place this upcoming weekend. Those with tickets will receive a refund within 30 days.
Their message ended with the hope that Bonnaroo will return next summer.
“WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE FARM IN JUNE 2022!”
