When Bonnaroo returns for its 2019 edition from June 13-16, it’ll be without one of its iconic landmarks. The Bonnaroo Arch, which has welcomed attendees to the farm for over ten years, has been retired permanently — it has been burned and destroyed by the festival’s organizers. They posted to Twitter, “goodbye old friend! ❤️This incarnation of the Bonnaroo Arch had significant structural issues and needed to be removed. The Arch has changed throughout the years, and we’re exited for it’s newest incarnation.”
