Microsoft has announced a partnership with the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival to stream live music from the concert on Xbox systems. The concert isn't until June, but the Bonnaroo app is available now to prepare for the line-up announcement. That event will stream live at 7 PM EST on February 19, and will feature hosts Teran Killam (SNL) and comedian Hannibal Buress, along with appearances from The Flaming Lips and Ben Folds.

Bonnaroo has also organized watching parties for the line-up announcements, which you can find at the official site. The music festival itself will take place in June in Manchester, Tennessee, with musical acts across 13 stages and over the course of four days. The announcement from Microsoft didn't detail just how comprehensive its streaming plans for the festival will be.
