Bonnaroo 2021 has been canceled, organizers announced Tuesday, after rain from Hurricane Ida flooded parts of the 700-acre farm in Tennessee where the annual music festival was slated to be held this week.

“We are absolutely heartbroken to announce that we must cancel Bonnaroo,” organizers said in a statement, adding some areas had become waterlogged, saturated or otherwise dangerously flooded.

“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, and we have run out of options to try to make the event happen … safely and in a way that lives up to the Bonnaroo experience,” organizers said. “Please find ways to safely gather with your Bonnaroo community and continue to radiate positivity during this disappointing time.”
