Every June, nearly a hundred thousand people descend on a farm outside of Nashville, Tenn. for Bonnaroo, one of the world's largest outdoor music and arts festivals. This year, NPR Music will broadcasting and webcasting live from the festival, along with NPR stations WFUV (Bronx, NY), KUT (Austin, TX) and Minnesota Public Radio's The Current, bringing you full concerts by artists such as The Flaming Lips, LCD Soundsystem, Norah Jones, John Prine, Dan Deacon and many more. You can see a full list of bands and a schedule, and listen to our Bonnaroo mix here.

On this edition of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen talks with WFUV's Rita Houston, Andy Uhler of KUT and Jill Riley of The Current about some of the acts they're most looking forward to seeing at this year's Bonnaroo. Houston, a long-time veteran of the festival, also shares some of her past experiences battling Bonnaroo's crowds, heat and mud, all while enjoying some memorable live performances.
