Bonnaroo Music Festival Will Stream to Xbox Systems for Free
The four day-long, 13th Annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will provide access to its 13 stages for Xbox users in streaming HD.
The Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon, aka BLAM, will be broadcasted exclusively on the Bonnaroo app from the Xbox Live Dashboard and on Bonnaroo.com starting Feb. 19 at 9PM EST. According to Xbox Wire, he app will be available for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, with the only requirement being an active Xbox Live Gold account.
BLAM will also act as a way to test how efficient the Bonnaroo app is in its live-streaming capabilities to ensure that the actual festival will provide optimal quality for the two Xbox systems. This pre-show will feature hosts Taran Killam of ‘Saturday Night Live’ and comedian Hannibal Burress.
Last year, ZZ Top, Paul McCartney, RZA, Daniel Tosh, Nas, Bjork, R. Kelly, Billy Idol and a multitude of other top-performers throughout the music business graced Bonnaroo’s stages.
The actual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival will take place from June 12-15 in Manchester, TN with an anticipated turnout of over 80,000 fans in attendance.
