Bonnaroo 2020 has been cancelled

For the first time since 2001, there will be no Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival held in Manchester.

The Bonnaroo festival for 2020 has been cancelled, organizers announced on Thursday.

The festival, which was originally scheduled for June but was moved to Sept. 24-27 due to COVID-19 pandemic will now not take place at all.

Organizers say the festival will return next year, June 17-20 at Great Stage Park in Manchester for a 20th year anniversary celebration.

Bonnaroo officials said that ticket holders will be able to roll their tickets to next year, or get a refund.

According to Coffee County Mayor Gary Cordell, with a soldout crowd expected for this year’s festival, the county had budgeted for upward of $800,000-$900,000 of a sales tax windfall for the event. Without this revenue, the county’s budget is tightened even further. 

“This certainly doesn’t help us,” said Cordell. “We are getting some new revenues through the out-of-state online tax that is new this year and I hope we can offset some of these losses with that. Otherwise, we may have to make amendments as we go. This has certainly been a challenging budget year.”
