The forecast for the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this weekend in Manchester, Tenn., is scattered thunderstorms, but you don’t have to worry a stitch about that (unless you’ll actually be frolicking in the 700-acre field where it takes place). That’s because starting this Friday and throughout the weekend, we’ll be live streaming directly from Bonnaroo, in partnership with Superfly Productions and powered by Ford.
The exclusive webcast will include performances from folks like Jay-Z, Tenacious D, Kings of Leon, Weezer, the Dead Weather, LCD Soundsystem, Jimmy Cliff, The Avett Brothers, Spearhead and Dave Matthews Band. YouTube’s own ukulele queen Julia Nunes kicks the whole thing off on Friday, June 11, at 12:15 p.m. (CDT) / 1:15 p.m. (EDT). Hear her talk about her journey to Bonnaroo:
