Flaming Lips to Jam with Ben Folds for Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement
The Flaming Lips, Ben Folds and other special guests will join forces for a superjam during the Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon (BLAM!) pre-show on February 19. The announcement— which will be broadcast exclusively on Xbox and syndicated on Bonnaroo.com—will begin at 9pm ET, with the pre-show event starting at 7pm ET.
BLAM! will be hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam and comedian Hannibal Buress. Xbox users can download the Bonnaroo app from the Xbox Live Dashboard on Feb. 19 and tune in to the pre-show and lineup announcement.
Bonnaroo is also putting on official watch parties at record stores across the U.S. and Canada. These parties will begin at 7 p.m. EST, unless otherwise noted, to coincide with the Xbox pre-show and BLAM! Merchandise will be handed out at select locations while supplies last. More watch party locations will be added in the future.
