Bonnaroo organizers cancel this year’s festival, citing flooding from heavy rain

It’s the second year in a row that the festival has been called off. Last year’s event was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo,” the festival wrote on its website. “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.”

The festival was scheduled to start Thursday and run through Sunday at the festival grounds in Manchester.

Bonnaroo said it has “run out of options” to make the event happen safely.

Among those scheduled to perform were Foo Fighters, Meghan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, Tame Impala, Jason Isbell, Phoebe Bridgers and Tyler, the Creator.
Many of those same acts were scheduled to perform at last year’s festival.
