Watch The Internet Wreck Bonnaroo In A Late-Night Livestream

The Internet - "Get Away" [Official Video]

Music fans flocked to Manchester, Tennessee for the annual smorgasbord of sounds that is the Bonnaroo Music Festival. For those of us who couldn't make the trip and are willing to stay up late by our computers, there's an alternative available: live streaming.

We’re most excited about seeing The Internet, who are scheduled to close out the night with a set beginning at 2:30 a.m. Other artists scheduled to appear on the stream include The Claypool Linen Delirium, CHVRCHES, Chicano Batman, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis,and The Knocks.

Visit the homepage of Bonnaroo’s website to stream the evening’s performances.

What may be the best set of the night isn't even scheduled to appear on the Bonnaroo streaming line-up. The 2016 Summer Jam is set to pay homage with a production by saxophone maestro Kamasi Washington and special guests including Miguel, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, Blood Orange and others. Hopefully, the footage from these performances will surface in the days and weeks after the festival, because it sounds like it will be a night to remember.

Regardless, The Internet’s performance should be a treat. Syd Tha Kid, Matt Martians and their bandmates have emerged as one of the best live acts in music over recent years, especially after their 2015 album Ego Death pushed them to the top 10 on Billboard’s U.S. Rap and R&B charts. Tonight’s show should be no different.

Sunday’s lineup of performers at Bonnaroo also includes Father John Misty, Death Cab for Cutie, Dead & Company, Ween and Boy & Bear
