Firefly is one of hundreds of US festivals that is planning to run this year amid the coronavirus pandemic. Other festivals including Tennessee’s Bonnaroo are set to return this year after numerous delays caused by the health crisis. Bonnaroo, which usually takes place annually in June, has been moved from its regular summer slot and will return to the fields of Manchester, TN over Labor Day Weekend (September 2 – 5). 2021 also marks Bonnaroo’s 20th anniversary.
The festival had already postponed its 2020 live edition from March to September last year. The organiszers later cancelled outright, announcing a new date of June 2021 (with a line-up set to include Lizzo, Tool, Tame Impala and Miley Cyrus) but moved it for a third time.
