Bonnaroo is set to headline the Tennessee festival along with J. Cole, Tool, and Stevie Nicks. The announcement mentioned that 21 Savage, Slowthai, and Japanese Breakfast will play at the festival. Machine Gun Kelly and The War On Drugs will also perform in that event.
Last year the festival was canceled due to weather issues. Festival organizers wrote at the time, “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.”
They also added, “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.”
In 2020 it was scrapped because of a rise in COVID cases throughout the US. pandemic. The Fleetwood Mac singer wrote at that time, “While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the five performances I had planned for 2021.”
Then he added, “Because singing and performing have been my whole life, my primary goal is to keep healthy so I can continue singing for the next decade or longer. I’m devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022.”
However, Bonnaroo has decided to return this year in June.
