Stevie Nicks, J. Cole and more

Our 1980s dreams are coming true: Stevie Nicks is back.


And she’s headlining Bonnaroo, becoming the first-ever woman to do so.

The music and arts festival — slated for June 16 to 19 in Manchester, Tennessee — will feature a performance by Nicks on the final day of the weekend.

Nicks’ return to the large festival stage comes after she lamented the loss of her “youthful years” to COVID-19.


In 2020, she was cooped up in her home due to the pandemic, scared it was “stealing” her “last youthful years.”

“I don’t have just 10 years to hang around and wait for this thing to go away,” Nicks told the Associated Press. “I have places to go, people to sing for, another album to make.”

And that she does.

Nicks is back after the pandemic caused an industry-wide concert hiatus.


In both 2020 and 2021 Bonnaroo was cancelled — first for COVID-19, then for flooding — but, as promised last year, the festival is back (as long as it does not meet the same fate as The Grammys).

Nicks will preform at the festival with a slew of other big-name artists that span various genres.

Machine Gun Kelly, Roddy Rich, 21 Savage and J. Cole are amongst the hip-hop and pop artists playing, while top DJs Flume and Illenium are also scheduled to perform.

Other smaller alternative indie artists, like Still Woozy, Role Model and Wallows, will be attending the concert series as well.


But fans weren’t thrilled at the lineup, taking to Twitter to voice some concerns.

“The positive side of this is that we know the Coachella lineup cannot be as bad as this!” wrote one user.


“This looks like the worst Bonnaroo lineup ever,” complained another.

But Stevie Nicks fans were having a moment.

“I need more money,” wrote one fan.

“Literally take everyone off the lineup n just have Stevie sing all of her songs on repeat for 4 days n we’ll be happy,” someone else chimed in.


“Whoever got this line up put together deserves a raise,” tweeted another.

One superfan even said they’d fly from Southern California to the concert just to see Nicks perform live.
