The massive Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival has been officially cancelled for 2020.

Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival in neighboring Manchester was to have happened in June. In fact, organiozers reported a record sell out of tickets in a relitively short period of time. After the COVID-19 Pandemic, planners said the sell-out festival would be moved to September.

NOW, Bonnaroo planners have changed the event date again, this time announcing that the entire show will be cancelled and there won't be another Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival untol next year.

Organizers say they decided to cancel the concerts out of a concern for safety to keep those in attendence healthy as well as making sure the coronavirus didnt have an opportunity to negatively impact Bonnaroo staff and their line-up of entertainers.

NEW DATE: Bonnaroo will now take place on June 17-20, 2021 to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
