2014 Bonnaroo Superjams Announced
Thu, 08 May 2014 13:42:37
The SuperJams are back for Bonnaroo 2014.
Three mega SuperJam lineups have been announced for this year's Bonnaroo, set for June 12 through June 15 in Tennessee.
In an era in which the business of music is all too apparent and pervasive, the Bonnaroo SuperJam, the festival's signature event, has become a respected and highly acclaimed institution that looms large as a once-in-a-lifetime experience where experiments are encouraged, genre categories no longer exist and superstar musicians who may have never crossed paths let alone shared the same stage become unexpected collaborators in pursuit of pure creation.
It's a musical utopia.
One SuperJam stars Skrillex and includes Big Gigantic with special guests Damian Marley, Robby Krieger (of The Doors), Zedd, Mickey Hart, Janelle Monáe, Warpaint, Chance the Rapper, Thundercat and more.
Wow, right? But that's not all.
Another one featuring Derek Trucks will include Chaka Khan, Taj Mahal, Eric Krasno, James Gadson, David Hidalgo and Adam Deitch with special guests Andrew Bird, Susan Tedeschi, Ben Folds and more.
Bonnaroo is also excited to bring back to the farm banjo maestro Ed Helms and his Bluegrass Situation SuperJam. featuring the Lonesome Trio, Dierks Bentley, Sarah Jarosz, Lake Street Dive, The Black Lillies, Shovels & Rope, The Lone Bellow, Robert Ellis, Della Mae, Bryan Sutton, and Dave Johnston of Yonder Mountain String Band.
"SuperJam shows are about creating moments of surprise when no one knows what will happen next," says producer Paul Peck. "The amazing artists that are a part of the SuperJams are taking a big risk by stepping outside their comfort zones and doing something very ambitious in a very high profile performance. And they do it for the same reason we do: creating something special for the entire Bonnaroo community to experience together. We're all in it together and get to see what happens at the same time."
