Music fans who cant trek to Tennessee for the Bonnaroo Music & Arts festival still have a chance to see the action: Fuse TV is televising parts of the three-day extravaganza, its first national TV exposure.

Acts ranging from Kanye West to Metallica to Pearl Jam are slated to perform at Bonnaroo, the yearly event that is held on a farm in Manchester, TN. The event will also feature comedians including Chris Rock and Janeane Garofalo.

Fuse plans to televise six hours of programming from the festival, ranging from performances to interviews with the artists. The network will also broadcast live from the event.

We couldnt be more excited to be working with Fuse as our broadcast partner, said Jonathan Mayers, Bonnaroo Co-founder, Superfly Productions, said in a statement Monday. We understand that not everyone can make the long trip to Tennessee, so the fact that we can now bring the Bonnaroo experience into millions of homes is amazing.

Bonnaroo, now in its seventh year, attracts about 80,000 to the 700-acre farm where the event takes place. Other acts performing this year include Jack Johnson, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, and Death Cab for Cutie.
