Recently, Bonnaroo announced their new COVID-19 policy. Attendees of the festival will have to provide proof of vaccination, and people who are not vaccinated will have to provide a negative test that is less than 72 hours old. As the delta variant of COVID keeps spreading, multiple other festivals updated their policies, most recently Lollapalooza in July. In 2020, Bonnaroo, like all other festivals, was forced to cancel their shows due to COVID-19. And initially, Bonnaroo had announced their 2021 dates for June 17 to June 20, before ultimately postponing till September.
Last year, Baroness updated their fans on Instagram that they were working on new music “in the wilderness.” They have been writing music since the spring of 2020 and in September 2020, John Baizley stated that they had “just under 30 songs” written for their new album. This album has still yet to come out one year later.
