Watch Skrillex’s Epic Bonnaroo SuperJam Full Documentary Ft. Big Gigantic, Zedd, Damian Marley, Members Of The Grateful Dead, The Doors & Much MorePosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: A$AP Ferg, Big Gigantic, Bonnaroo, Cage the Elephant, Damian Marley, Grateful Dead, Lauryn Hill, Skrillex, Superjam, The Doors, Zedd
One of the longest running major festivals in the US, Bonnaroo recently announced it's full 2015 lineup last week. Along with the lineup announcement, was a teaser of the Skrillex and Friends SuperJam documentary, which was filmed leading up to and during last year's groundbreaking performance. Well today the festival has released the documentary in it's entirety for our viewing pleasure.
The teaser opens with a quote from Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, who's band member Robby Krieger was actually apart of this very SuperJam:
"The new generation's music .. it might rely heavily on electronics"
SuperJams are known for being themed on a specific genre of music and bringing in singers and musicians from every genre to perform outside of their expected style; well 2014 was the debut year for electronic music. It only made sense bringing Skrillex to help host the epic set, along with Big Gigantic in which Dominic Lalli acted as the musical director and Jeremy Salken was the core drummer of the supergroup.
The laundry list of special guests included Zedd, A$AP Ferg, Lauryn Hill, Damian Marley, Thundercat, Mystikal, members of Incubus, Cage the Elephant, Warpaint as well as members from iconic American rock groups Grateful Dead and The Doors. Even some unexpected additions like Craig Robinson from The Office who showcased his singing skills in the mix. Seeing how an electronic curated jam session can be bringing in artists from across all genres is a massive statement for how far electronic music has come and become part of our culture.
You can now stream the entire documentary below and also through the U-verse Bonaroo website.
Also, Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic and Paul Peck, the SuperJam's musical director and producer respectively, are both set to answer some questions about the Jam in a Reddit AMA later today (8pm EST). Connect with the Reddit AMA here > Reddit.com/bonnaroo

Exclusive Behind The Scenes Footage Of Skrillex & Friends Rehearsing Before Bonnaroo “SuperJam” [FULL SETLIST]Posted in Bangin, Events, Video by nick | Tags: Big Gigantic, Bonnaroo, Chance the Rapper, Fatman Scoop, Janelle Monáe, Mickey Hart of The Grateful Dead, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Skrillex, Superjam, Thundercat, Warpaint, Zedd
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
