I am a music enthusiast with a deep love for the energy of crowded venues, loud music, & passionate fans. I have a diverse background that includes private security, talent buying, festival security planning, & media relations. I've also worked as a camera operator for various projects, including music videos featuring notable artists like Bernz, Tech N9ne, & Krizz Kaliko. Additionally, I am a camera operator for Full Moon Features, where I contribute to the production of horror movies.

Bonnaroo has announced the lineup for its planned post-pandemic return, set for September 2nd-5th, 2021. Much of the bill from the festival’s canceled 2020 edition remains intact, with a couple of notable exceptions.

New additions to the lineup include Foo Fighters, Phoebe Bridgers, Tyler the Creator, My Morning Jacket, Deftones, Janelle Monáe, Incubus, Deadmau5, Waxahatchee, Jack Harlow, Jon Batiste, Julien Baker, The Disco Biscuits, Kim Petras, and Tripp St.

Those names fill the gaps left by acts not attending the Manchester, Tennessee event. Like Tool, Miley Cyrus, Vampire Weekend, The 1975, Bassnectar, Flume, Oysterhead, Tenacious D, Denzel Curry, slowthai, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Nilüfer Yanya, Mt. Joy, Rezz, Mt. Joy, Billy Strings, and Tones and that I .

Even with those unfortunate omissions, there’s plenty to beckon fans back to The Farm this Fall. The lineup still includes Lizzo, Megan Thee Stallion, Tame Impala, Run the Jewels, Glass Animals, Young Thug, Jason Isbell and therefore the 400 Unit, Brittany Howard, Lana Del Rey, King Gizzard and therefore the Lizard Wizard, Primus, Nelly, Dashboard Confessional, Orville Peck, Briston Maroney, and therefore the Struts.

There also are unique performances. Like Thursday night’s Grand Ole Opry with special guests. Turkuaz’s Remain in Light with Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew, and Sylvan Esso’s “With” Superjam. Find the complete lineup poster below.

Tickets for Bonnaroo will continue sale today, March 31st at 1 PM ET/12 PM CT, via the festival’s website. Options include General Admission (4-Day), GA+ (4-Day), VIP (4-Day), Platinum (4-Day), General Admission Camping & Parking, VIP Camping, and Platinum Camping.

Bonnaroo becomes the newest North American music festival to pin its hopes on a Fall return. Las Vegas’ Life is gorgeous recently announced plans for a September event. San Francisco’s Outside Lands shifted its 2021 fest to Halloween weekend. After a 3rd postponement, Coachella remains without dates on the calendar. While European events like Primavera Sound and Glastonbury have set their sights on 2022.

As of now, Bonnaroo has not provided any details on its COVID-19 safety protocols. Saying only that organizers are in “regular communication with local health and public safety officials and can still abide by relevant recommendations. Because it approaches, Bonnaroovians will receive regular updates with the important information needed to plan their trip to The Farm. Including any changes to policies and procedures, they’ll get to know before entering the festival and campgrounds.”
