A new trend is starting to occur as time passes and the future of the coronavirus continues to remain uncertain. Music festivals, such as Coachella, have begun to cancel their once-rescheduled events. Now, another well-known festival has followed: Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has officially been canceled.
The Tennessee music festival confirmed on social media that they will no longer be holding the event on the reschedule September dates. However, news source Festive Owl has reported that planning for 2021 has already begun. They are attempting to keep the same artists that were planned to perform this year.
Ticketholders will receive an email with information as to what options will be available to them. According to the Bonnaroo announcement, they will be able to roll over tickets or receive a refund. For those who planned to attend the event next year, make sure to watch your emails.
Unfortunately, as more rescheduled events become canceled, there will not be many festivals taking place in the fall. Although for a justifiable reason, sadly we may not be seeing their official return until 2021. As of now, the only event that has actually been confirmed to take place this year is Dancefestopia. Kansas City officials have told event organizers that they will be able to hold their September event. However, many ticketholders are concerned that it may be too early to attend a festival, especially while the United States is currently seeing spikes in COVID-19 cases. Hopefully, the virus will not be as harmful by the time September comes around.
Stay tuned for the official Bonnaroo announcement.
