Portugal. the Man to Play ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic’s Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup Livestream
Three-hour special includes classic clips, comedy, concert
The good folks behind Bonnaroo have released an “announcement about the announcement” of the Tennessee festival’s 2013 lineup. As previously reported, our “Smells Like Nirvana” pal “Weird Al” Yankovic will be unveiling this year’s performers via live YouTube stream, but heretofore the details about that broadcast were otherwise unknown. In the clip posted above, the accordion-shredding jokester appears to let us know that it’s all going down on February 19 at noon EST.
Things will begin with an hour-long presentation of standout performances from previous ‘Roos including Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Black Star, Bon Iver, the White Stripes, and, of course, Phish. At 1 p.m., the Yankovic-hosted Bonnaroo Line-Up Announcement Megathon (BLAM) shall commence, and, as an annotation over the clip above notes, there will be a live performance from Portugal. the Man. Finally, at 2 p.m. — because everyone knows people don’t typically have responsibilities on early Tuesday afternoons — the Bonnaroo365 channel will air “a classic full performance” from festival past.
Also, this: “Stay tuned to find out how YOU might have the chance to help us announce an artist on the 2013 lineup!” Blam, indeed.
