We're going to Bonnaroo and you're coming with us. We'll have three days of live concert webcasts from the festival. Our coverage begins this Friday, June 11, and runs through Sunday June 13, with webcasts starting at 1 p.m. ET each day and running until about three in the morning ET.
I and a bunch of others from NPR Music will be there, along with hosts from some of NPR's great music stations, including Rita Houston of WFUV; KUT’s Andy Uhler; and The Current’s Jill Riley.
The schedule of what we broadcast is still shifting but all the info will be here. In the meantime, you can listen to our free stream of select Bonnaroo artists.
Some of the artists we know we'll be webcasting include: The Flaming Lips (performing Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon), Kings of Leon, LCD Soundsystem, Nas and Damian Marley, The National, Mumford and Sons, The Avett Brothers, Jimmy Cliff, Norah Jones, Jay Electronica, The Gossip, Dan Deacon, John Prine, The Dave Matthews Band, The Dodos, Local Natives, Neon Indian, Here We Go Magic, Gaslight Anthem, The xx, She & Him, Mayer Hawthorne, Tinariwen, Baaba Maal, Regina Spektor and Thievery Corporation.
We'll have photographers updating the NPR Music Bonnaroo page and interviews from on site. But most of all we'll have music, lots and lots of concerts.
