Bonnaroo music festival will stream live on Xbox this June

New, 15 comments

Microsoft is teaming up with Superfly Presents, the company behind Bonnaroo, to stream the annual music festival on Xbox consoles this June. Both Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners will get access to an "exclusive, interactive television event that will be streaming in high-definition where available." Fans will be able to switch between multiple streams — presumably covering each of Bonnaroo's multiple stages — and they'll also get access to "exclusive" performances from years past. The press release doesn't specify whether the entire festival will be streamed live (i.e. late-night shows), so a trip to Manchester, TN may still be necessary for the full experience. This year marks the 13th time Bonnaroo has been held; the four-day music and arts festival began back in 2002.

Of course, whether you bother watching will largely depend on who's performing. The complete 2014 Bonnaroo artist lineup will be announced February 19th at 9PM. Xbox users will also be able to stream this event, which will feature a "SuperJam" featuring The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds. An official Bonnaroo app will be released for Xbox consoles later this month, granting fans access to the Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon and the full festival in June.
