Mickey Hart, Damian Marley, Robby Krieger and More to Join Skrillex at Bonnaroo
The Skrillex SuperJam at Bonnaroo will feature the likes of Big Gigantic, Damian Marley, The Doors’ Robby Krieger, Zedd, the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, Janelle Monae, Warpaint, Chance the Rapper, Thundercat and more. The SuperJam will take place from 12-2 AM in The Other Tent on June 14.
Skrillex and The Doors have collaborated before in the past, as the popular DJ used the surviving members on his track “Breakn’ a Sweat” in addition to a sample from a Jim Morrison interview from the ’60s. Hart and Skrillex hung out during the Hard Day of the Dead in 2013 and the DJ also participated in a conference about the touring model set by the Dead alongside Warren Haynes.
More details about the additional Superjams are expected in the coming weeks. Bonnaroo kicks off June 12 in Manchester, TN and features headlining sets from Kanye West, Elton John and Jack White.
Hart’s appearance at the festival marks the first time a member of the Grateful Dead has performed at Bonnaroo since 2008, though touring member Bruce Hornsby played the festival in 2011.
