For years music fans and artists alike have either had to choose between Bonnaroo or CMA Fest or attempt to attend both as they have shared the second weekend of June each year. That will all change next year, as Bonnaroo announced it will move its festival to the weekend after CMA Fest, reports Nashville Business Journal.

Bonnaroo 2019 will take place June 13-16.

This past weekend, Brothers Osborne performed at CMA Fest on Thursday evening and again on Sunday evening with Dierks Bentley but not before the duo took to the stage at Bonnaroo late Sunday afternoon.

“We have regularly advocated for this change to hold Bonnaroo and CMA Fest on separate weekends to offer more flexibility for the local community as well as the visitors, and we’re excited about this change,” Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. President Butch Spyridon told the Nashville Business Journal.

Bonnaroo, a four-day festival, takes place in Manchester, Tennessee and CMA Festival is a four-day country music festival held in downtown Nashville.
