Bonnaroo Is Back In September. Are We Ready For A Comeback Of This Size?

Are we ready for a comeback of this size

Tame Impala: Are we ready for a comeback of this size?

 

Some festivals have decided to postpone all their festivities for next year (Coachella will not happen before 2022) but other ones have decided to gamble everything on a complete recovery from the pandemic this fall. Tennesse’s Bonnaroo is one of these festivals since the giant music fest has been rescheduled for September 2nd-5th, 2021, yes, it is happening this year.

The headliners are Foo Fighters, Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, Tame Impala, Tyler the Creator, and Lana Del Rey, whereas Run The Jewels, Janelle Monae, Young Thug, My Morning Jacket, Jake Harlow, Jason Isbell, Phoebe Bridgers, Incubus, Lil Baby, Deadmau5, Leon Bridgers, Young the Giant, Brittany Howard, and many others will perform during the 4-day event. The lineup reads more or less like a combination of recent Saturday Night Live guests, Top 40ish artists, and Instagram or Twitter’s most popular performers. I just wonder how Foo Fighters can stay relevant in this Tyler the Creator/Megan Thee Stallion/Run The Jewels/Lizzo world. I guess they are an appeal for the older crowd, which may get lost with most of the rest of the lineup.

Female artists seem to be well represented and it’s funny that a major female artist plays opposite to a heavy-weight male artist/band on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! It will be interesting to compare the Foo Fighters crowd with the Megan crowd on Friday night for example.

So far there is some overlap with Las Vegas’ Life is Beautiful which was also announced for September: Tame Impala, Young Thug, Brittany Howard, Young Thug, Glass Animals are playing both events.

The 4-day GA ticket is $349, the 4-day GA+ ticket is $549 (but this one is already sold out!). There’s also a 4-day VIP ticket for $1050, a 4-day Platinum ticket for $3275! Go here for all the details and lodging possibilities.

Are we ready for a comeback of this size? A 4-day event with a giant crowd almost looks surreal after a year of isolation. Here is Bonnaroo’s full lineup:
