Take a musical staycation with the Bonnaroo app for Xbox

Microsoft’s E3 presentation may have been all about games as a sort of mea culpa for its 2013 shotgun approach to entertainment functionality, but that doesn’t mean it’s changing its plan to make your Xbox into the only entertainment device you need. Outside of E3, Microsoft has been releasing a steady stream of entertainment apps for the Xbox, now including a dedicated app for the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

The Bonnaroo app lets Xbox One and 360 owners watch performances live from the festival, which runs today, June 12, through Sunday, June 15. Personalization will enable tracking your favorite artists so you can receive notifications when their performances are coming up live for you to stream. The Xbox event feed keeps track of what your friends are watching as well. Highlights lets you watch performances you missed, for up to 90 days after the festival, while the Best of Bonnaroo section gives you access to some of the best performances from 2005-2013, including artists like Tom Petty, Phish, and Arcade Fire. Xbox users are also be treated to exclusive artist content and backstage interviews.

Pin the Bonnaroo app to your homepage and be entered to win various goodies and tickets to next year’s festival with the Pin It to Win It contest. The app is available now on Xbox One in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Brazil, and on Xbox 360 additionally in Argentina, Chile, and Columbia. The live stream of performances begins Friday, June 13 at 1:30 p.m. (PST).
