RIP Bonnaroo arch: Landmark burned, dismantled due to ‘structural issues’

Bonnaroo officials have confirmed that the festival’s iconic arch was burned intentionally and dismantled due to “significant structural issues.” 

“The structure had aged beyond repair and was no longer safe to remain in place,” festival officials shared in a statement to The Tennessean. “Its replacement will be revealed in a few short weeks as we welcome everyone back to The Farm for the 18th annual festival.”
