Tool-Headlined Bonnaroo 2020 Postponed Until September

  • Axl Rosenberg

This year’s Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, TN, which was originally scheduled to take place June 11 – 14, has now been postponed until September 24 – 27. The festival was set to include a number of metal or metal-friendly acts, including, Primus, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, Tenacious D, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and, in a headline spot, Tool.

Here’s a statement from the fest’s organizers:

“Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be rescheduled to take place September 24-27, 2020 out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff and our community.

“All current tickets and onsite accommodations (camping, tent rentals, RV, etc.) will be honored for the new weekend. Fans with off-site accommodations and shuttles purchased through the festival will be contacted directly with updates.

“Rest assured, we will share updates as quickly as possible via email, our website, and on our social accounts.

“Please continue to radiate positivity through this uncharted time in our world. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on The Farm this fall.

“- ❤️ Bonnaroo”

It’s not clear how, if at all, this will impact the fest’s line-up. You’ll know more when we do.
