during the Reddit AMA at 8PM ET Tonight

“It’s been years since I’ve played in a live band. I wouldn’t even call this a live band I would call this some alien race of music that hasn’t even been heard before.”
-Skrillex (This Stage, Bonnaroo TN., 3:20am on Saturday June 14th, 2014)

“When we announced this Superjam it was controversial. The pressure was on for all of us to live up to the legacy of the SuperJam. In the end, we got the surprise of a lifetime
and a show for the ages.”
-SuperJam producer Paul Peck

“#1 Best Performance of Bonnaroo 2014”
-Billboard

Like Bonnaroo itself, the festival’s SuperJam is an ambitious experience that pushes boundaries transversing genres, generations and expectations. From rehearsals to the stage, watch as maestro Skrillex, both on stage in an exclusive backstage footage, pushes his own genre boundaries and forms the foundation of an all-star band led by Big Gigantic, with Thundercat on bass and Incubus’ Mike Einziger on guitar that would ultimately involve such wide ranging artists and influences including:
The Doors (Robby Krieger), the Grateful Dead (Mickey Hart), Ms. Lauryn Hill,
Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Zedd, A$AP Ferg, Warpaint,
Mystikal, Janelle Monae, Matt Shultz from Cage the Elephant,
Joel Cummins from Umphrey’s McGee, Craig Robinson and much much more.

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.

The entire series was shot and directed by Danny Clinch, a three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated film director and one of the most acclaimed photographers working today.
