Organizers of the annual Bonnaroo music festival announced Tuesday that this year’s event has been canceled due to weather conditions in Tennessee brought on by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida.

“We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo. While this weekend’s weather looks outstanding, currently Centeroo is waterlogged in many areas, the ground is incredibly saturated on our tollbooth paths, and the campgrounds are flooded to the point that we are unable to drive in or park vehicles safely,” the organizers said in a statement.

“We have done everything in our power to try to keep the show moving forward, but Mother Nature has dealt us a tremendous amount of rain over the past 24 hours,” the organizers added.

This year’s lineup of performers included Megan Thee Stallion, the Foo Fighters, Lizzo, Tame Impala and Tyler the Creator.

All tickets will be refunded within the next 30 days via the original method of payment, organizers said.

This marks the second consecutive year that the Tennessee music festival has been canceled, with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the cancelation of last year’s event. The annual festival was first held in 2002.
