Last weekend the Listen crew was on the ground supporting Skype at the amazing Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, which took over a farm in the town of Manchester, Tennessee from June 12-15. Nearly 100,000 people attended, and Skype was there to give each of them a chance to get closer to their favorite artists on the lineup.
The Skype Recording Booth, situated next to the Bonnaroo’s iconic ferris wheel with Xbox’s Game Stage on the other side, allowed Bonnaroovians to stop by throughout the festival and record a question for Bonnaroo artists via Skype video message. Selected fan questions were then featured in artist Q&As dubbed Chatting With Artists, which are viewable via Xbox Live and on Bonnaroo’s YouTube channel.
A few of our favorite sessions include CHVRCHES, Damon Albarn, Cage The Elephant, Real Estate, and Umphrey’s McGee.
