NPR Music, together with three partner public radio stations, sets up camp by the four main stages at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, presenting three days of live webcasts with dozens of performances from popular musicians. From June 11-13, NPR Music, together with Member stations KUT Austin, The Current from Minnesota Public Radio and WFUV New York, team up to offer more than 40 full sets from acts taking the Festival’s Which, What, This, and That stages, including The Dave Matthews Band, The Dead Weather, Kings of Leon, Nas and Damian Marley, Phoenix, The Avett Brothers, Jimmy Cliff, The Flaming Lips (performing Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon), Norah Jones, Jay Electronica, The Gossip, Dan Deacon, LCD Soundsystem and John Prine.
If you’ve followered their coverage of SXSW in the past, you know that these webcasts (and subsequently archived sets) are top notch. This will likely be a few sets I set my watch to. We’ll post the schedule when we get it.
