Bonnaroo Organizers Tap Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard & Sylvan Esso For Nashville Make-Up Show

After cancelling this year’s event due to flooding caused by Hurricane Ida, Bonnaroo organizers have announced a make-up show with Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard and Sylvan Esso. The gig will take place this Saturday (Sept. 4) at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville and will require attendees to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours or proof of vaccination.

“Hey Bonnaroovians! If you’re still around and looking for a little bit of Bonnaroo magic then come join us this Saturday night!” organizers wrote in a post announcing the show. Tickets for the show go on sale at 1 p.m. ET on Friday (Sept. 3).

This year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, which was slated for Sept. 2-5 at Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tenn., was cancelled on Tuesday after the waterlogged areas and campgrounds flooded by the remnants of Ida made it impossible to stage the event as planned.

“We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo,” organizers said in a statement. “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. 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. Please find ways to safely gather with your Bonnaroo community and continue to radiate positivity during this disappointing time. WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE FARM IN JUNE 2022!”

Among this year’s scheduled Bonnaroo performers were: Deadmau5, Foo Fighters, Lizzo, Megan Thee Stallion, My Morning Jacket, Run the Jewels, Young Thug and Tyler, The Creator.
