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."

The Festival Owl tweeted a picture of the arch on fire on Thursday, and the aftermath:

Some on Twitter said that it was time for the arch to go:
