The 13th annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is coming to living rooms around the world through an all-new Bonnaroo app for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The app, which launched today for Xbox One in the US, Canada, Mexico and Brazill and for Xbox 360 in US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Columbia, is just in time for music fans to watch the 2014 Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon, aka BLAM!
Starting with the pre-show event at 7 p.m. EST and then BLAM! at 9 p.m. EST, hosts Taran Killam (“Saturday Night Live”) and comedian Hannibal Buress will reveal all in this Bonnaroo-style party featuring a SuperJam with the Flaming Lips and Ben Folds. For the June event, the app will be expanded with more social and interactive features, to bring you closer to the event, the artists, and your fellow Bonnaroovians.
Can’t wait until tonight? Xbox has an exclusive sneak peek video fans can watch here before enjoying the full show on Xbox. The Bonnaroo journey begins when Bricen Heyman (Killam) approaches a magical party in the Bonnaroo Christmas Barn and tries to determine whether he’ll get to perform at Bonnaroo. With Hannibal Buress at the door managing the guest list, there’s no telling what might happen….
Bonnaroo and Xbox are partnering to give Xbox users unprecedented access to the live Bonnaroo experience through an exclusive, interactive television event that will be streaming in high-definition. This June, the four-day, multi-stage event will attract 80,000 visitors to Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN and the 2014 epic experience begins tonight.
