Announced on May 17, Tennessee's four-day Bonnaroo Festival, now in its tenth year, is sold out. A reported 80,000 tickets were sold, with crowds heading to Great Stage Park, a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, June 9-12. But you can watch full concerts of the event via a live webcast.

Rap stars Eminem and Lil Wayne and Canadian rock band Arcade Fire are headlining, joined by Buffalo Springfield (featuring Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Rick Rosas, and Joe Vitale), Widespread Panic, The Black Keys, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Mumford & Sons, The Strokes, The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Scissor Sisters, and dozens of other acts.

The US's National Public Radio Music will be webcasting and broadcasting live over four days of full concerts. You'll be able to hear the concerts on the NPR Music website, the NPR Music iPhone app, and other member stations in the US.  

Bonnaroo is the top-grossing festival in North America, and Rolling Stone named it as one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll.
