Bonnaroo reveals 2014 SuperJam lineups, and they’re insane

on May 07, 2014, 10:52am

This year’s Bonnaroo promises three different SuperJams over the course of the four-day festival. Today, festival organizers finally revealed each lineup, and they’re as absurd as you could hope for.

For his Saturday night SuperJam, Skrillex will be joined by an impressive and eclectic cast of musicians, including Janelle Monae, Chance the Rapper, Warpaint, Thundercat, The Doors’ Robby Krieger (!), Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Big Gigantic, and  Zedd. Not only that, but you can thank Skrillex for bringing Grateful Dead back to the farm, as Mickey Hart is also set to participate in the jam.

Friday night’s SuperJam will gear more towards jam band and blues fans, as it’ll feature Derek Trucks joined by everyone from Chaka Khan to Andrew Bird to Ben Folds. The lineup also includes Los Lobos’ David Hildago, Trucks’ wife/longtime collaborator Susan Tedeschi, blues musician Taj Mahal, and drummer Adam Deitch, among others.

On Sunday, comedian turned musician Ed Helms will host a bluegrass SuperJam, featuring Dierks Bentley, Lake Street Dive, Shovels & Rope, Robert Ellis, The Lone Bellow, Sarah Jarosz, and The Lonesome Trio.

Bonnaroo takes place June 12th – 15th in Manchester, TN. The lineup also includes Jack White, Kanye West, Elton John, Vampire Weekend, Frank Ocean, Arctic Monkeys, Nick Cave, Phoenix, Lionel Ritchie, and Neutral Milk Hotel, among others. Tickets are still available.

Friday night SuperJam: Derek Trucks featuring Chaka Khan, Taj Mahal, Eric Krasno, James Gadson, David Hidalgo and Adam Deitch with special guests Andrew Bird, Susan Tedeschi, Ben Folds and more

Saturday night SuperJam: SuperJam: Skrillex and Friends featuring Big Gigantic with special guests Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Robby Krieger (of The Doors), Zedd, Mickey Hart, Janelle Monáe, Warpaint, Chance the Rapper, Thundercat and more

What a great lineup. I’m so glad First Aid Kit is on it! I’ve been listening to “My Silver Lining” a lot lately, it’s such a pretty song. I bet it’s even better live. Can’t wait for Bonnaroo!

I am not surprised tickets are still available….last three years had amazing line-ups….this year not one headliner that deserves to BE a headliner…

tickets are available every year until a few days leading up to the festival, obviously we’re still a month away from the festivities, so naturally tickets would still be available. Also Bonnaroo has by far the most killer lineup this year, this just adds to the awesomeness of this years lineup. Where else can you see these kinds of shows? nowhere

CoS loves getting those clicks, and we keep falling for it. This is one of the more worthy/honest/true to the site’s apparent goal headlines at least.

Edits: Susan and Derek are married, and it’s Lake Street Dive.

These lineups create serious anxiety for us not attending this year.

Maybe you should change this headline to: Bonnaroo reveals 2014 SuperJam lineups, and they’re “meh”.

Hey idiots, the Grateful Dead never played Bonnaroo. Various members and The Dead have played. You may want to fix that, so you don’t look stupid. Then again, with your regular TMZ worthy posts, I get the feeling you have given up on not looking stupid, and just accept that you are a bunch of idiots.

Smooches.

Its pretty obvious what they are implying, most people today view “greatful dead” as the various members of the band not the actual band itself. You’re the one who looks stupid with your ignorant comment.
