(MANCHESTER, TN)  The 2021 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has been canceled due to flooding from Hurricane Ida–related rain. The Manchester, Tennessee festival was set to kick off this weekend (September 2-5) with headliners Megan Thee Stallion, Foo Fighters, Tame Impala, Lizzo, and many more.

Festival officials noted, "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." 

They concluded, "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.
