Through a partnership between Microsoft and Superfly Presents, this year’s upcoming Bonnaroo music festival will be streaming, live, on your Xbox Ones and Xbox 360s.
According to Microsoft, Bonnaroo on Xbox is going to be an interactive experience.
This new partnership will give Xbox users unprecedented access to the live Bonnaroo experience through an exclusive, interactive television event that will be streaming in high-definition where available. Enjoy live music like never before, with multiple streams featuring the best performances, biggest artists and amazing SuperJams. Explore this year’s lineup to see the best of Bonnaroo’s past with exclusive performances. Join the conversation with fellow virtual-Bonnaroovians and get connected to your friends and the festival.
The announcement made no mention of specifics, like which concerts will be streaming. It probably won’t be everything, however, as I’m sure Microsoft would have made a point to mention that if it were the case.
“This is an amazing event to bring to Xbox, to showcase our unique capabilities for delivering premium music concerts and festivals,” says Wil Mozell, general manager of Xbox Entertainment Studios. “More fans than ever before will have access to Bonnaroo and enjoy an immersive experience only available on Xbox.”
Bonnaroo will take place on June 12th through the 15th in Manchester, Tennessee. The lineup will be announced on February 19th in a “announcement megathon” that features comedians Hannibal Buress and Taran Killam, as well as a superjam featuring The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds. You can watch that on your Xbox too, via the new Bonnaroo app.
Of course, if you’re savvy, you can track Bonnaroo on Instagram to receive “Roo Clues,” the festival’s annual cryptic hints about who’ll be performing at the festival.
