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.
