Bonnaroo 2011 Streaming at a Computer Near You
The 2011 Bonnaroo music festival is coming to a computer near you. The 10th anniversary of the fest, which will feature Eminem as headliner, will stream live all weekend long on Vevo, allowing music fans to skip out on the porta-potties, mud and scorching heat that usually comes hand-in-hand with the four-day long music party, held in a remote field 50 miles south of Nashville, Tenn.
Since 2008, Bonnaroo has upped the hip-hop ante when it comes to its lineup. Kanye West, Jay-Z and the Beastie Boys have all had a turn on the fest's main stage in the last three years. Eminem will play an hour-and-half long headlining set on Saturday night, while Lil Wayne will rock things Friday in the evening/morning, playing from 1AM to 3:30AM.
J.Cole, Wiz Khalifa and Big Boi will also be making appearances with a mic at Bonnaroo 2011 and are confirmed for the Vevo stream, along with other Bonnaroo 2011 performers Florence + The Machine, Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, the Strokes and many more.
The Vevo stream will be broadcast at Vevo.com/Bonnaroo. The stream begins Friday, June 10 at 12PM ET; Saturday, June 11 at 11:30AM ET and Sunday, June 12 at 12:30PM ET. Several performances will then live on Vevo in the on-demand format following the festival.
