Bonnaroo, one of North America's top music festivals, released the lineups for their popular SuperJam yesterday, and one particular lineup stood out. Skrillex will be performing alongside Big Gigantic, Zedd, Robby Krieger of The Doors, Mickey Hart of Grateful Dead, Warpaint, Janelle Monae, Damian Marley, Thundercat, Chance The Rapper, and more. For those unfamiliar with Bonnaroo's SuperJam concept, the Tennessee music festival brings together a diverse set of musicians for a mind-blowing one-off performance.
Take a minute to digest all of the names booked to play this SuperJam set for one minute. Skrillex will be flanked by some of today's most popular artists, but he will also be playing with a member of The Doors and a member of Grateful Dead—two of the most influential bands in the history of rock music. The names attached to the SuperJam show the cultural relevance that Skrillex currently possesses. Yes, each SuperJam performance is intended to pull together artists across multiple for an innovative set. However, the popularity and overall influence of the musicians supporting Skrillex is evidence of just how big Skrillex has become.
