The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival was informed yesterday that Mumford & Sons had to cancel their Saturday headlining appearance due to bassist Ted Dwane’s medical condition. In Mumford & Sons’ place, festival organizers are pleased to announce that Jack Johnson will now headline Bonnaroo on Saturday night.
Bonnaroo wishes Ted a speedy recovery and looks forward to the band returning to the festival.
I was on my way to Bonnaroo to sit in on a set with my friends ALO last night when we got the call asking if I could possibly help out and cover for Mumford and Sons. I heard the news about Ted Dwane and was happy to know that he was on his way to recovery. I called my band and asked if they were up for it. Long story short – they are headed this way. I’ve got a lot of lyrics and chords to relearn by Saturday night. I was here to play the first Bonnaroo and it is a very special festival to my band. We are excited to hit the stage again. Get well Ted!
