Bonnaroo Is Back: Foo Fighters, Lizzo, Tyler, the Creator, Tame Impala to Headline 2021 Fest

After the folks behind Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival were forced to postpone, then outright cancel the event in 2020, COVID vaccines means it’s finally feasible to head back to The Farm. Organizers detailed the fest’s 20th anniversary iteration on Wednesday, confirming its Sept. 2-5 dates and lineup, which returns 2020 headliners Lizzo and Tame Impala, with Foo Fighters stepping in for Tool to close out Friday night.

Standout acts also include (deep breath) Megan Thee Stallion, Lana Del Rey, Run The Jewels, Janelle Monáe, Deftones, Young Thug, Nubya Garcia, Waxahatchee, The Weather Station, My Morning Jacket, Leon Bridges, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Phoebe Bridgers, King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Brittany Howard, Lil Baby, Julien Baker, Yaeji, Flo Milli and a Sylvan Esso-led Superjam.

With all that good news comes a bit of bad: Bonnaroo, too, has hopped on the NFT train, marking their 20th anniversary by teaming with digital artist Archan Nair and NFT marketplace Makers Place to produce “a one-of-a-kind NFT collection including a 1 of 1 special edition of the 2021 Lineup Poster,” per a press release. (Ironically, that same release later mentions that Car Camping Passes are priced per car, rather than per person, so fans can “save money and reduce their carbon footprint by carpooling” ... emphasis ours).

Tickets for Bonnaroo 2021 go on sale today, March 31, at 1 p.m. ET. You can grab yours here, and see the full lineup and poster below, beneath Lizzo’s 2016 Daytrotter session.
