The festival only comes to Manchester, Tenn., once a year, but now fans can be on the farm in spirit all year round thanks to this week’s launch of the brand new YouTube channel Bonnaroo365.
The channel will be packed full of “Good Stuff” curated and produced by the Bonnaroo producers with a mix of original episodes, daily comedy and music programming, and an archive of past festival performances.
New Zealand actor/stand-up comedian Rhys Darby helped get Bonnaroo365 started May 7 with an official launch video and ribbon cutting ceremony. Look out for more videos from Darby. Best known as Murray on HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords,” Darby stars in the Bonnaroo365 series “Janson Skibby: Festival Director.”
The “Adventures In: Mardi Gras” series highlights New Orleans and Mardi Gras’ music, parades and parties as well as some of The Big Easy’s legends in the form of mini-documentaries directed by Casey Neistat.
Check out #BonnarooGethard to see if comedian Chris Gethard can make it to Bonnaroo to perform at 2 a.m. on opening night after being dropped off on the West Coast without cash, credit cards or a phone.
Eric and Jeff Rosenthal’s sketch comedy series “Its the Real” will also be featured on Bonnaroo365 along with comedian Rob Cantrell’s “Universally Speaking with Rob Cantrell.”
“Back To The Farm: The Bonnaroo Archives” will show off epic Bonnaroo performances on a weekly basis. The series kicks off with My Morning Jacket’s 2011 set. The nearly hour and 15 minute video will be available on Bonnaroo365 until May 15. Upcoming “Back To The Farm” videos include performances from Mumford & Sons and Metallica.
The 2012 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival takes place June 7-10. The 700-acre farm will host Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, The Beach Boys, Bon Iver, The Avett Brothers, The Shins, Foster The People, Skrillex and many more acts.
