Bonnaroo 2021 is canceled, but festival organizers have announced an indoor show in Nashville.

This year’s event was canceled due to waterlogged campgrounds as the remnants of Hurricane Ida swept through Tennessee. The indoor make-up concert will feature Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard, and Sylvan Esso. It takes place on Saturday, September 4 at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville. Attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to attend.

“Hey Bonnaroovians. If you’re still around and looking for a bit of Bonnaroo magic, then come join us this Saturday night!” organizers wrote on Twitter. Tickets for the show went on sale this afternoon.

Among this year’s scheduled Bonnaroo performers were Deadmau5, Foo Fighters, Lizzo, Megan Thee Stallion, Run the Jewels, Young Thug, and Tyler, the Creator.

Phoebe Bridgers was added to the Bonnaroo roster just this year, while Brittany Howard and Sylvan Esso were part of the original 2020 lineup. Esso is set to present WITH, a full band re-imagining of some of their favorite songs. Tickets start at $39.50 for general admission.

As of the time of writing, there are still some seats available in the nosebleed section. Most tickets to the event have been sold out after just one day of availability. Several stars shared their disappointment with the decision to cancel the show.

“Honored to be your first female headliner, Bonnaroo,” Lizzo wrote on Instagram. “Take care of yourselves, everyone who is in the path of the storm. Safety first.” Jason Isbell tweeted, “I’m sorry y’all had to make this choice but I believe it was the right one. I was really REALLY looking forward to it, but ya gotta be safe and smart. Love to everybody on the crew with a broken heart today.”

It’s no surprise that pop dup Sylvan Esso are appearing at the Bonnaroo indoor Nashville show.

“Anybody gotta good outdoor venue in Tennessee for this sick ass band? Bonnaroo got cancelled, but we are still practicing anyway cuz music is joy,” the duo tweeted.

    Smart. Indoor during a pandemic is better than outdoor or nothing at all. Jeez, idiots. Make sure it’s a show that only anti-vaxxers can attend so we rid the earth of these brainless, cretins.

      Run for your life! Panic! You might catch a cold where you have a 99% of surviving.

      Shut down the world…….run, panic, run, government power forever!

        When someone responds to an article or comment with an extreme comment, they lose legitimately right away. Nobody is shutting down the world. It isn’t happening. The only thing shut down is your common sense.

        Your comments, no matter what name you use, are stupid. Let’s hope you’re one of the 1% (actually 1-3% die, but you can’t argue with someone who believes lies and misinformation).

          I am a lying political bureaucrat who will say anything to keep government control over your life. I love the sound of my own voice, and stupid Americans apparently trust my pasty white skin. I have no idea why blacks trust me, but hey….BLM and masks ferever, baby!

          Only about 8% of Covid deaths were actually from Covid. The other 92% of the death count are somebody who tested positive but likely died of something else like heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, COPD, alcoholism, gunshots, car crashes, suicides, or they’re 97 years old. Most deaths are 70+.

          Show up anywhere quoting actual data rather than repeating what the pretty teleprompter reader said and you get shouted down by pro-Big Pharma, pro-Government, pro-Fascist types who want everybody to be forcibly jabbed with something forever, and prove it. And wear a mask. Meanwhile, look at photos from Obama’s birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard. Everybody’s partying. I’m sure his mansion will be underwater anyday now due to global warming. Many of you love to believe the lies because you’re on Team Democrats Can Do No Wrong. I hate Republicans, but I hate Democrats even more.
