The full line-up for Bonnaroo 2022 has been confirmed, with J. Cole, Tool, and Stevie Nicks set to headline the Tennessee festival this summer. Bonnaroo is back this year from June 16th-19th, after being cancelled in 2021 due to weather concerns and shelved the prior year due to the COVID pandemic.
Machine Gun Kelly, The War On Drugs, Japanese Breakfast, Chvrches, Slowthai, Roddy Ricch, Bleachers, Arlo Parks, The Chicks, Flume, 100 gecs, 21 Savage, Herbie Hancock, Tierra Whack, The Weather Station, Denzel Curry, Sons Of Kemet, Indigo De Souza, Tinashe, and many more will perform alongside the headliners in Manchester, Tennessee.
Before Hurricane Irma ruined preparations, the concert was slated to have Foo Fighters, Megan Thee Stallion, and Tame Impala as headliners last year.
“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,” festival organisers wrote at the time of its cancellation last year.
“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,” they added.
Stevie Nicks cancelled all of her remaining festival engagements for the year in August 2021, citing an increase of COVID cases across the United States.
“While I’m vaccinated, at my age, I am still being extremely cautious and for that reason have decided to skip the five performances I had planned for 2021,” the Fleetwood Mac singer wrote in a statement.
“Because singing and performing have been my whole life, my primary goal is to keep healthy so I can continue singing for the next decade or longer. I’m devastated and I know the fans are disappointed, but we will look towards a brighter 2022.”
