Bonnaroo is possibly one of the most diverse music festivals across the globe and one of the things that makes it so special is the unique "SuperJam" sets where musicians from all styles of music collaborate for once in a lifetime performances.
We reported a few months back about the announcement of Skrillex's SuperJam bringing out Big Gigantic to help set the tone just right. This is also the first ever SuperJam in Bonnaroo's history to be focused around electronic music with rappers, R&B singers, and live musicians filling out the spaces. The occasion called for Skrillex to meet with his star studded cast of band mates the week leading up to the festival to rehearse their set. In the exclusive behind the scenes footage below, we see Skrillex jaming out with the likes of legendary New Orleans rapper Mystikal, comedian / pianist Craig Robinson, both Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken of Big Gigantic, Fatman Scoop and many others.
The actual SuperJam took place on Saturday night at the festival and damn it was legendary. Ring leaders Skrillex and Big Gigantic's list of "friends" included so much raw musical talent we hope we aren't missing anyone. The list of friends includes Zedd, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead, Damian Marley, Chance the Rapper, A$AP Ferg, Layrn Hill, Janelle Monae, Warpaint, Thundercat, and the surprise of Fatman Scoop, Mystikal, and Craig Robinson on the keys.
The set itself included countless covers of music outside of electronic foundations with a new set of artists coming in every 3 – 4 songs and the entire jam lasting close to three hours in length. In the truest of ways, it was the first ever Super Jam with an electronic focus to happen in front of a live audience and those who were lucky enough to witness the spectacle were treated to the rawness of creative expression in todays modern form. Those who were lucky enough to be there watching the pefroamnce with us are the only ones lucky enough to ever experience this once in a lifetime "Jam". You can view the video below of some of the madness that took place and the photo's taken. Enjoy
