Bonnaroo 2020 Lineup Announced: Headliners Tame Impala, Lizzo and Tool Are Part of a Strong Eclectic Weekend

Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival is returning this year to Manchester, Tennessee, from June 11-14. Today, the 2020 lineup has been announced. The headliners are Tame Impala, Lizzo, and Tool. The lineup also includes Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend, Flume, Miley Cyrus, the 1975, Run the Jewels, Young Thug, Megan Thee Stallion, Brittany Howard, DaBaby, Jason Isbell, Tenacious D, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Nelly performing all of Country Grammar, Cuco, Makaya McCraven, and more.

 

However, in true Bonnaroo fashion, the trio is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this year’s lineup.

They’ll be joined by Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend, Bassnectar, The 1975 and Flume. Other eclectic highlights include Run The Jewels, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Oysterhead, Tenacious D, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Leon Bridges, Young Thug and Grace Potter.

Lizzo will also be making headlines at Bonnaroo, as the first-ever female artist to top the bill at Bonnaroo. The “Truth Hurts” singer is in the midst of a phenomenal year, but she previously came to Bonnaroo (and stole the show) on one of its smaller “tent” stages in 2016.

Alternative rock outliers Tool are returning to Bonnaroo after previously headlining in 2007 – the largest gap ever for a returning headliner. They’ll also perform at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on January 29.

Australian psychedelic rockers Tame Impala have thrived at Bonnaroo – their performance on the festival’s secondary stage in 2016 attracted one of the largest crowds of the weekend. They’ll make their Bonnaroo headlining debut this year, closing out the festival on Sunday night.

Last year was a big one for Bonnaroo. In 2019, the festival sold out for the first time in six years.

After taking last year off and almost getting replaced by a Vanilla Ice concert, Austin City Limits is returning to Zilker Park in Austin, Texas this fall. ACL will take place over two weekends, 10/1-10/3 and 10/8-10/10, and organizers have just announced the 2021 festival’s lineup. Headlining the shows in October are George Strait, Billie Eilish, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cirus, Rufus Du Sol, Dababy and Erykah Badu.

“Music is coming back strong to the Live Music Capital of the World,” says Austin Mayor Steve Adler. “The return of Austin City Limits as an in-person festival celebrates that our efforts as a community to become vaccinated are working. Health and safety remain our top priority, and we will work closely with the organizers and Austin Public Health to ensure ACL Fest is in line with our health standards. We must continue to get everyone vaccinated and keep up our success.”

As the Austin City Limits music festival prepares for a big comeback after a 2020 COVID-19 cancellation, tickets are on sale for both weekends (October 1-3 and 8-10) now.

The festival’s cancellation, according to a 2019 study, presented a blow to Austin’s economy, as the event brought almost $1.5 billion to the area that year. The cancellation also came months after Austin’s other iconic music festival, South By Southwest, made the decision to cancel for the first time in its 34-year history.
