In 2021 we were hopeful to see the return of festivals and huge music events, and while we've seen the return of some we, unfortunately, won't see the return of Bonnaroo this year, but it isn't because of COVID.

Today Bonnaroo took to their Facebook page to make the announcement that they will be canceling the annual festival due to flooding on the grounds where the festival is held. Acts like Foo Fighters, Primus, and Baroness were set to take the stages at Bonnaroo on Manchester Tennesee this coming weekend (September 2nd-5th).   Here's what Bonaroo said:

We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo. 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.

We have done everything in our power to try to keep the show moving forward, but Mother Nature has dealt us a tremendous amount of rain over the past 24 hours, and we have run out of options to try to make the event happen safely and in a way that lives up to the Bonnaroo experience.
Please find ways to safely gather with your Bonnaroo community and continue to radiate positivity during this disappointing time. WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE FARM IN JUNE 2022!
All tickets purchased through Front Gate Tickets will be refunded in as little as 30 days to the original method of payment.
Unfortunately over the last year and a half, we've definitely become used to events and concerts being canceled, but it still really stinks when it happens.  Hopefully 2022 we'll finally get to see a normal year of shows and festivals again, fingers are crossed!
