The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has been cancelled and instead won’t return until 2021.
Organizers announced the cancellation on Thursday, rescheduling the event from the planned September 24-27, 2020 to June 17-20 of next year.
The move was made “out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all Bonnaroovians, artists, staff, partners, and our community,” a statement reads.
For those who already purchased tickets, organizers say an email will be sent instructing holders on how they can roll-over the ticket to the June date or receive a refund.

Heidi McLean has accepted a position as the new Director of the Medical Assisting program for Cleveland State Community College.
Cleveland State was the only Tennessee community college that offered an Associate of Applied Science degree for many years. As a result of the strong curriculum, CSCC graduates have been quick to find employment in their field. Many are hired by the doctors’ offices where they complete their required externships.
Prior to accepting the position at Cleveland State, McLean served in a number of roles in the healthcare field including urgent care, primary care, as well as many specialty physician practices with her most recent role being the Medical Office Administration and Medical Assisting instructor for Fortis College in Smyrna, Georgia.

On Tuesday, Bradley County added 44 new cases of COVID-19, 40 of which were confi rmed in the Bradley County Jail.

Tennova-Cleveland Chief Medical Offi cer Dr. Bill Johnson said Thursday morning that the uptick is still relatively small and best measured by the number of hospitalizations. He said as many as nine individuals have been hospitalized recently and seven are currently hospitalized in Tennova’s special wing for COVID-19.
The Tennessee Department of Health is also reporting a third death in Bradley County. Over a week ago, County Mayor D. Gary Davis indicated he was aware of a third local death due to COVID-19.
