Bonnaroo is back.

After canceling its 2020 event due to the pandemic, the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has revealed its 2021 lineup — filled with familiar names and a few big surprises.

Foo Fighters, Lizzo, Tyler The Creator, Tame Impala, Megan Thee Stallion and Lana Del Rey top the bill at this year's festival, which takes place September 2–5 in Manchester, Tenn.

Other big acts include Lil Baby, Run The Jewels, Janelle Monáe, Phoebe Bridgers, deadmau5, G-Eazy, Jack Harlow, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit and Brittany Howard.

Tickets go on saleWednesday at 1 p.m. ET at www.bonnaroo.com/tickets

Many of the acts on this year's lineup were originally slated to perform at the canceled 2020 Bonnaroo (Lizzo, Tame Impala, Megan Thee Stallion and Lana Del Rey).

Some performers didn't make the jump — Tool and Miley Cyrus, both booked in 2020, are absent here. The Foo Fighters and Tyler The Creator are among the most prominent new additions.

This year will mark the first time Bonnaroo hasn't taken place in the month of June. Last fall, organizers announced they'd move 2021's fest to September.

Bonnaroo's press release says organizers "always will be in regular communication with local health and public safety officials and will continue to abide by relevant recommendations. As it approaches, Bonnaroovians will receive regular updates with the important information needed to plan their trip to The Farm, including any changes to policies and procedures they’ll need to know before entering the festival and campgrounds."

There's also a statement from Tennessee Governor Bill Lee: “It’s exciting to see Tennessee stages come back to life in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this internationally acclaimed festival. Fans are ready to gather together and celebrate their shared love of music once again. We welcome them back for a full Bonnaroo and what is sure to be a truly unforgettable event!”
