No! It’s not because of Covid! The last minute decision by the Manchester, Tennessee festival was the result of hurricane Ida and the soaking she gave TN.
Bonnaroo was originally set to commence on Sept. 2 and end Sept. 5 this weekend.
“We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo,” the festival’s announcement read. “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,” the statement continued.
