The Foo Fighters, Tame Impala, Lizzo, My Morning Jacket, Tyler, The Creator and Megan Thee Stallion are among the 100 or so acts set to play a rescheduled Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, Labor Day weekend in September.

Typically held in June on the recently renamed Bonnaroo Farm, the event was moved because of COVID-19. The lineup was officially released March 31 at 11 a.m., though it was accidentally leaked online by an artist on Tuesday.

Lizzo made news with Bonnaroo fans last year when it was announced she would be the first female headliner in the festival's nearly two-decade history. For people who pay attention to lineups and how they are laid out with headliners listed on top, this year's lineup features a female artist on the first line of three of the four nights' schedules, also for the first time. Megan Thee Stallion joins the Foo Fighters on Friday, while Lana Del Rey joins Tyler, The Creator on Sunday's schedules.

Tame Impala is listed on the first line after Lizzo on Saturday, while Grand Ole Opry Featuring Special Guests tops the Thursday night shows.

The official announcement also includes information about a new Jamtrak system, a free taxi service for campers on the nearly 700-acre farm, as well as improvements to the sound and lighting systems for the stages and a one-of-a-kind NFT (non-fungible token) digital art program that will included a 1 of 1 special edition of the 2021 lineup poster.

The work will be created by digital artist Archan Nair in a new NFT marketplace called Makers Place. Bidding for the work poster and an animated digital artwork featuring the festival's mascot, Rufus, will take place online starting April 3 at 5:30 p.m. Central Time.

Tickets, which start at $329 plus parking, camping and other fees, for the 20-year-old festival go on sale Thursday at noon Central.
