Microsoft will have a big presence this weekend at the 13th annual Bonnaroo music festival that's being held in Manchester, Tennessee, which gets underway today and ends on Sunday, June 15th. The company will offer activities for both its attendees as well as those who want to watch the event from the comfort of their living room.
People who own an Xbox One or Xbox 360 console will be able to download the Bonnaroo app, which will allow them to pick which performances they wish to watch live from the festival, starting at 4:30 pm Eastern time on Friday. There will also be a way to view what's going on backstage with the apps, along with access to videos showing previous Bonnaroo performances. Finally, users will be able to keep up with all the social networking activity coming from the festival via the Xbox apps.
Microsoft will also offer a way for people at the show to get exclusive Bonnaroo pictures when they link their RFID wristbands to their OneDrive account. The official OneDrive Bonnaroo page is already live with lots of images from previous years of the festival.
Finally, people either at home or at the festival will be able to use Skype to ask questions to a number of Bonnaroo performers. People at the show can ask their questions at the Skype booth and get some free swag. Everyone else can add "Skype_Bonnaroo" as one of their contacts in order to ask their questions.
