Bonnaroo’s “Virtual Roo-ality” music festival begins this Thursday night as a free-to-watch broadcast on YouTube. After being postponed by three-months originally, the in-person festival was cancelled for the year. The original dates were scheduled for June 11-14, 2020.
Finishing on Saturday, the three-day event is stacked with great performances from the past years and new virtual appearances.
The lineup was announced on Bonnaroo’s socials on September 16. It includes old appearances from popular names like Alabama Shakes from 2015, Beastie Boys from 2009, and Metallica from 2008.
Some of this year’s performances we’ll see will include bands and artists like Big Gigantic, Charli XCX, Denzel Curry, Lennon Stella, Mandolin Orange, Whiskey Jam, SAYMYNAME and Moon Taxi.
See the full lineup below.
Bonnaroo is about more than just the music though.
Throughout the event, Bonnaroo will be taking donations for the ACLU Foundation, Headcount, Cheers to Live, and Virtual ROO-ALITY Dog Dance Party. The donations will be made by the Bonnaroo Works Fund. Its mission is to “foster community, creativity, and positive influence.”

Bonnaroo is also sponsoring with brands like Toyota, Twix, Tito’s, Bacardí, and Robe Rage to bring unique and exciting programming centered around conversations like health, wellness, and creativity to the experience.
