Tool-Headlined 2020 Bonnaroo Festival Officially Canceled
Update: After initially pushing Bonnaroo to the fall, organizers have now revealed the 2020 edition of the festival will not take place this year. In a statement, they revealed, "Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will not take place this September 24-27, 2020 as originally rescheduled. Our annual time together on the Farm is nothing short of magical, but out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff, partners and our community, this is a necessary reality. More information on lineup, camping and accommodations will be available at a later date. For refund information and rollover options, head here. The festival will return in 2021, with dates set for June 17-20.
The mighty Tool have made their festival presence known for 2020, as the band will headline the Friday night of Bonnaroo this year in Manchester, Tennessee.
The lineup for the annual festival has just been announced, with Tool heading up the Friday (June 12) bill. Lizzo and Tame Impala will be the headliners for Saturday (June 13) and Sunday (June 14), while Thursday's kickoff festivities (June 11) will include a Grand Ole Opry salute with special guests.
It was a huge year for Tool in 2019, who finally returned with their long awaited Fear Inoculum album. The feverish anticipation for new music helped the band to some chart records along the way, and they remain as popular as ever as a touring act. Their placement above pop star Miley Cyrus on Friday's Bonnaroo bill is a solid indicator of where the band currently sits in the music world.
Other acts of note for rock and metal fans that are taking part in the weekend include The Struts, Vampire Weekend, Flogging Molly, Primus, Tenacious D, Oysterhead, Run the Jewels, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, The Marcus King Band, The Regrettes and more.
Tickets for Bonnaroo will go on sale this Thursday (Jan. 9) at 12N ET. For additional ticketing info and packages, head here.
