MANCHESTER, Tenn. (WTVF) — Bonnaroo is bringing the farm to your home with an upcoming virtual festival called ROO-ality.

The event will air live from September 24 through 26 at 4:30 p.m. Central each night through YouTube for free.

Viewers can catch a lineup of original programming, new performances and legendary live sets from the Bonnaroo archives, including a full-length stream of the Beastie Boys' final concert on June 12, 2009.

Additional live performances out of Bonnaroo's archives include Dave Matthews and Friends, Metallica, The White Stripes, James Brown, My Morning Jacket, Alabama Shakes, Tears For Fears and The XX.

More than 35 artists will also offer new virtual performances and once-in-a-lifetime collaborations.

Bonnaroo released the full lineup of performances on Wednesday morning.

Just as the in-person festival does every year, ROO-ality will provide viewers with additional activities and experiences throughout the event, like a virtual Sanctuary of Self Love, the Dog Dance Party, Bonnaroo Campfire Tales and Cheers to Live.

The entire event will be streamed exclusively on Bonnaroo's YouTube page.
