Confirmed directly from Bonaroo’s social media accounts, the famed arched has been demolished. After buzz was created from posts about the arch being ‘destroyed’ and ‘burned in a fire,’ the iconic landmark on The Farm was put into question. It was engulfed in flames – rightfully so – due to structural deficiencies.
The Arch has draped the festival’s skyline since its inception in 2002. Over the years, its changing face has remained a rite of passage for new and returning festival junkies – illuminating the night’s sky as late night jam-sessions and raves blare till dawn.
With less than 22 days until Bonnaroo strikes on June 13 through 16 in Manchester, TN. 2019 Bonnaroovian’s anxiously await the rebirth of the arch.
The 2019 lineup features headliners: Phish, Post Malone, The Lumineers, Childish Gambino, as well as Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, GRiZ, Space Jesus, The Avett Brothers and John Prine – among the 50-plus artists performing.
