Bonnaroo 2014: Stream Festival Sets Including Elton John, Jack White, Vampire Weekend
By Radio.com Staff
These days, it’s easy to catch sets from some of the world’s biggest music festivals without leaving the comfort of your own home. Already this year, fests like Coachella and Ultra made a large chunk of their programming available streamed either live or with a tape delay on their website — and this weekend’s Bonnaroo will be no different.
The Tennessee festival, which kicked off yesterday (June 12), will showcase sets from artists big and small over three days of streamed content, according to the fest’s website.
Beginning today (June 13) at 4:30 p.m. ET, Bonnaroo will air sets on two different channels, both accessed via its website. Festivities will kick off today with Umphrey’s McGee and Break Science, with Janelle Monae, the Head and the Heart and Pusha T included in a schedule that ends with Vampire Weekend and the Naked and Famous.
Saturday, Jack White and one of the fest’s Superjams, led by Derek Trucks, will be the main events, with Chromeo, Lionel Richie and James Blake included and the Tedeschi Trucks Band and Valerie June starting the show at, again, 4:30 p.m. ET.
In addition to the musical content, Bonnaroo will also stream some more interesting goodies, including a contest searching for Bonnaroo’s “funkiest dancer” Saturday night at 11:35 p.m. ET.
