Bonnaroo content will be available on a dedicated Vevo channel by using apps for iOS and Android, on devices like Google TV and Boxee, and through partner sites like AOL, BET, and CBS Interactive.
Searching YouTube for a music video can render all kinds of results — mashups, low quality copies, and fan remakes, among others. But thanks to the new Vevo App (Free) for your iPhone and iPod Touch, you'll get the goods with one search. The app gives you a front row seat to Vevo's entire video library (over 20,000 and counting), along with exclusive videos and programming, notification alerts on upcoming premieres, and custom playlists for your favorite vids.

Missed out on tickets to see Arcade Fire tonight at Madison Square Garden? Don't live anywhere near NYC? No problem! YouTube and Vevo are partnering up to bring you Arcade Fire live from NYC via a Terry Gilliam-produced stream on YouTube. Starting at 10 p.m. EDT (7 p.m. PDT), all you have to do is head to the Arcade Fire Unstaged YouTube page, hit play, and skip the concert tickets and bathroom lines.
More than just a live stream, you can also watch a preshow Q&A session conduced by Terry Gilliam, choose your camera angles during the show to get a customized viewing experience, and in an homage to their latest album title, you can submit and upload photos of your own suburban neighborhood to the band's "Unstaged Suburb Project," and they'll share their favorites during the show! YouTube and Vevo have lots more in store for their Unstaged project and will be broadcasting shows from John Legend and The Roots, among others to come.
It's kickoff time for the 2010 World Cup, and I'm putting you right in the middle of the action with this roundup of apps to keep you on top of the scores, sites to check out all the day's highlights, and streams to watch the games live.

The FIFA World Cup, which starts in less than two weeks, is a massive, worldwide celebration. And if you aren't lucky enough to be traveling to South Africa to get in on the festivities, you'll still be able to check out its Kick-Off Celebration Concert online. Music video site VEVO has secured exclusive rights to live stream the June 10 concert featuring renowned artists like Alicia Keys, Shakira, Black Eyed Peas, and John Legend.
A number of international acts will perform as well, in this first event of its kind, broadcast to a global audience. Plus, it's in HD!
VEVO has already started the countdown at worldcup.vevo.com with videos of various performers. The concert will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. local time on Thursday, June 10 — which is 2 p.m. EST. As soon as the concert is over, the full video will be available on demand, along with additional exclusive content from the artists.
Sony is partnering up with Vevo to live stream the show — which will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7:00 p.m. EST— to millions around the country. All you have to do to get in on the live stream action is head to the William Rast website, or Vevo on Wednesday. Or, you could sign up to be put on the guest list for a smattering of VIP streaming parties at William Rast retail stores. This really only means you, California. Lucky.
