Bonnaroo 365 lands Phish’s The Clifford Ball

The second installment of Bonnaroo 365 features streamed footage from Phish’s The Clifford Ball DVD box set. Bonnaroo 365 debuted with the The Raconteurs complete live performance from Bonnaroo 2008. The second installment will begin on May 11th, 2009 with a full set from Phish’s The Clifford Ball DVD box set. Classic footage of the second set of night two from the performance will be streamed for free on Bonnaroo’s website. The Clifford Ball event holds a great deal of significance for Bonnaroo as it, along with the band’s subsequent festivals, were essential sources of inspiration for Bonnaroo’s creation. Bonnaroo 2009 will be Phish’s only festival performance of the summer.
