Can't Make it to Bonnaroo This Weekend? Catch the Action Live on YouTube and NPR
If a trek to Tennessee for Bonnaroo just wasn't in the cards this year, we have two ways for you to catch the Music and Arts fest from the comfort of your South Florida digs.
First, the three-day arts and music festival is hosting a YouTube page with exclusive live webcasts from June 11 through 13, and as you can see by the video announcement above, they're angling it for all those of us that can't make it. Here's hoping they're filming the entire festival, as we'd really like to see Conan's comedy headlining performance. Rumor has it he's bringing some musicians onstage with him.
Another option for those that don't mind just catching the action from 1 p.m. to 3 a.m. comes courtesy of NPR. They're hosting three days of live concert webcasts, beginning tomorrow at 1 p.m. Word is the coverage will include big names like Phoenix, Kings of Leon, LCD Soundsystem, the Dead Weather, the Black Keys, Kid Cudi, Tthe National, and local G-ville band Against Me! For a full lineup of live performances you can watch, go here.
While you wait for the clock to strike one each day this weekend, you can listen to NPR's free stream of selected Bonnaroo artists on its site, or download their free, 11-song NPR at Bonnaroo Sampler.
