Bonnaroo365: Phish, Mumford and Sons, My Morning Jacket, and Metallica and More
The promoters of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival have launched the new YouTube channel Bonnaroo365. Mixing the festival’s music, comedy and film offerings, Bonnaroo365 will feature new and unique videos everyday throughout the year. The channel’s initial offerings include choice archival Bonnaroo performances from the likes of My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, Primus, Umphrey’s McGee, Grace Potter, Gogol Bordello and Against Me!, among others. All the videos are professionally shot and some, including Widespread Panic and My Morning Jacket, feature the band’s full sets. Phish, Mumford and Sons, and Metallica will also offer videos from their Bonnaroo appearances in the coming weeks.
In addition, Rhys Darby, who is best known for his role as Murray in HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, has created a character exclusively for the channel, Festival Director Janson Skivvy, while noted filmmaker Casey Neistatthese has created a few mini-documentaries for the Bonnaroo365 about New Orleans and Mardi Gras. Upright Citizens Brigade comedian Chris Gethard Eric and Jeff Rosenthal and Rob Cantrell will also create videos for the channel. Many of these comedians will take their characters to Manchester, TN for Bonnaroo this June.
