Bonnaroo Arch Burned Down Ahead of 2019 Festival
The iconic Bonnaroo arch has been demolished ahead of this year's upcoming event. Known for many people around the country as a symbol of a great time and an awesome festival, the arch is now merely a pile of ashes. The Festive Owl was able to get some people on the grounds to snap some shots of what remains.
It's official — RIP to the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival Arch. Your watch has ended.
Bonnaroo issued an official statement saying, “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 excited for its newest incarnation.”
Bonnaroo 2019 begins in three weeks, Jun 13 – Jun 16 and will debut a brand new arch.
