“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 noted.

Bonnaroo has not taken place since 2019. The festival’s 2020 edition was first postponed in mid-March and then canceled outright that June. On Monday, the festival announced that “areas of our campgrounds will be rendered unusable” due to the heavy rain. Full refunds were being offered to anyone impacted. Now, the festival has been scrapped entirely.

Bonnaroo 2021 has been officially canceled.

The festival, which takes place in Tennessee, announced the news on social media, citing the "waterlogged" festival grounds 

"We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo. 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 statement read.

"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," the statement continued.

The annual festival was scheduled to start Thursday on the site of a former farm in Manchester, about an hour southeast of Nashville. This is the second year in a row the music festival has been canceled. The 2020 festival was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Artists who were supposed to perform this weekend included Lizzo, the Foo Fighters, Tame Impala, Megan Thee Stallion, Phoebe Bridgers, Tyler, the Creator and Jason Isbell.

Bonnaroo 2021 canceled after getting 'waterlogged,' flooded by Hurricane Ida

Yahoo Entertainment 31 August, 2021 - 05:08pm

Organizers of Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival canceled the four-night event due to intense rainfall from Hurricane Ida, which quieted to tropical depression status Tuesday.

Rain moved in late Monday and continued throughout Tuesday, causing saturated tollbooth paths and flooded campgrounds "to the point that we are unable to drive in or park vehicles safely," according to a statement from Bonnaroo. 

"We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo," the festival said Tuesday via Twitter. "While this weekend’s weather looks outstanding, currently Centeroo is waterlogged in many areas."

The statement continued, "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."

Bonnaroo takes place in Manchester, Tennessee, about 70 miles south of Nashville. The region expected to get three to six inches of rain from the remnants of Ida. 

Sam Herron, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Nashville, said Tuesday that just under three inches of rain had fallen around the Manchester area.

“Of course it’s still raining down there, so probably another quarter inch of rain is expected to fall into the evening,” Herron said.

This is the second consecutive Bonnaroo to be canceled. 2020’s fest was pushed back three months due to the coronavirus pandemic, then ultimately cancelled. When Bonnaroo unveiled plans for a return in 2021, it was for September – marking the first time the festival has ever been held outside of June.

Bonnaroo's post says all tickets purchased through Front Gate Tickets (i.e. directly through the festival) will be refunded "in as little as 30 days to the original method of payment."

While the cancellation came as a shock to many, there were warning signs starting on Sunday, when Bonnaroo announced it would delay its campground opening by a day due to conditions. On Monday, they reported that areas of the campground were rendered "unusable," and offered refunds to all ticketholders.
