Simply put, Brad Serling’s Live Bonnaroo is the shit.
Live Bonnaroo offers downloads of high fidelity, mastered remixed multi-track recordings, all of which have been approved by the artists. Sets are available from the 2004 and 2005 Bonnaroo Music Festivals. Downloads are available in both MP3 and CD-quality lossless formats (FLAC), powered by nugs.net’s state-of-the-art delivery system. Live Bonnaroo files may be burned freely to CD, transferred to portable mp3 players, or played through your PC or Mac. Each Live Bonnaroo set comes with custom printable booklets, tray inlays, and labels if you elect to burn your files to CD.
I’ve purchased three discs from the site in the past two days–2005 performances from Yonder Mountain String Band, Donna The Buffalo and John Prine. There are many more to choose from, and Serling’s Nugs.net empire also includes sites offering live downloads from Gov’t Mule, String Cheese Incident, Galactic and more.
Sure, iTunes has the media’s attention. But Serling has ours.
