Weird Al Live-Streaming Bonnaroo Lineup Reveal

How does one shake up the boring world of festival lineup announcements? Hire Weird Al Yankovic, a bunch of comedians, and live stream everything on the Internet. That sure seems like an outside-the-box idea.

Bonnaroo is announcing its 2013 lineup with one of the most unique and interactive approaches to announcing a festival lineup I have ever seen. Weird Al is on hand to give add his engaging personality to B.L.A.M. (Bonnaroo Line-Up Announcement Megathon). Comedians are on hand to take phone calls from fans and reveal one confirmed artist to said caller. Google Hang-Outs are happening to give fans the opportunity to announce confirmed acts. Twitter hash-tags are used to pick which artists will revealed. It's all overwhelming but absolutely hypnotizing. 

I have no idea how long the live-stream is going to last, but there are already plenty of artists already revealed: Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, The xx, Passion Pit, Wilco, Jim James, Grizzly Bear, Foals, Billy Idol, Wild Nothing, Walk the Moon, Killer Mike, Japandroids, Trombone Shorty, Portugal the Man, and plenty more.

You can watch the live-stream right here. I suggest you do, because it's a whole lot of awesome.

Bonnaroo takes place June 13th thru the 16th in Manchester, Tennessee.
