The 2020 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event, which was set to feature Tool, Primus, Tenacious D, Oysterhead, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats, Flogging Molly, The Struts, etc., will now take place in Manchester, TN on September 24-27.
“Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be rescheduled to take place September 24-27, 2020 out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff and our community.
All current tickets and onsite accommodations (camping, tent rentals, RV, etc.) will be honored for the new weekend. Fans with off-site accommodations and shuttles purchased through the festival will be contacted directly with updates.
Rest assured, we will share updates as quickly as possible via email, our website, and on our social accounts.
Please continue to radiate positivity through this uncharted time in our world. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on The Farm this fall.
Tenacious D will be hitting the road on a fall U.S. tour. The duo have partnered with 46 for 46 for the trek, which will find them performing and encouraging voter registration in swing states.
The band commented:
“[Trump is] the most divisive, corrupt and dangerous President in the modern history of this country, and we simply cannot stand for another four years of his administration! Now is the time to elect a REAL leader!
In 2016, six states were decided by 2 percentage points or less, and ten states were decided by 4 percentage points or less. Swing states played a pivotal role in the outcome of that election, and they will again in 2020. Knowing that, we looked at each other and agreed: just like the tale of Post-Apocalypto, it is time for Tenacious D to RIDE and help save the world from Trumpian destruction. With great rock comes great responsibility.”

As previously reported, Rush’s Neil Peart has sadly passed away following a battle with brain cancer. A number of rock/metal musicians have since taken to social media to pay tribute to the legendary drummer and some of the various posts can be found below:
It is unbelievably sad to hear that my favorite drummer of all time, Neil Peart, has left us. Very hard to find words to properly express the level of inspiration & influence he had on so so many musicians. He will forever remain at the top of my list. Farewell to a true king. pic.twitter.com/A9QkSWg2f9
Neil Peart Is single-handedly the reason I became a musician back in 1978 after hearing “all the worlds a stage” @rushtheband has been my favorite band since, so to hear that Neil passed away today is absolutely devastating to me. I’m sad beyond words……………… pic.twitter.com/PPcjzJNyXB
At the end of a crazy @rockhall night in 2013 where @rushtheband & @PublicEnemyFTP were inducted. It was just myself & Neil PEart alone talkin & laughing low in relief the long night was over-a small table backstage sharing a unique moment without much word. Rest in Beats my man
