Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monae Are No Longer Playing Bonnaroo 2021

Everything you need to know about attending the Tennessee festival.

Coachella may not be ready to put on a two-weekend extravaganza just yet, but that doesn’t mean other festivals aren’t going full steam ahead this year. Bonnaroo has just unveiled the full lineup for their 20th anniversary edition of the festival taking place the weekend of September 2-5 in Manchester, Tennessee. Lizzo, Megan Thee Stallion, Tyler, The Creator, Tame Impala, and Foo Fighters are all slated to headline the festival, alongside dozens of other smaller acts who will take over its stages over the four-day event.

Like all other festivals, Bonnaroo postponed its 2020 edition several times before landing on its current dates in the fall. Here’s everything you need to know about attending the 2021 festival.

Bonnaroo Lineup

Bonnaroo 2021 is looking to have a stacked lineup. Lizzo, Tyler, the Creator, and Foo Fighters will be headlining the three main days with support from Megan Thee Stallion and Tame Impala.

Other notable acts that will be gracing the festival’s stages include Phoebe Bridgers, Run The Jewels, Jack Harlow, Young Thug, G-Eazy, Lil Baby, DeadMau5, and more. Over 100 musicians and bands are slated to perform across four days.

On July 8, Bonnaroo announced that three previously announced acts, Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monáe, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, pulled out of the festival. They’ve been replaced with acts Khruangbin and Rüfüs Du Sol.
