Last year's Superjam featured John Oates collaborating with Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jim James and many other artists
After releasing the daily schedules this week, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has announced the artist who will take part in the late night superjams.
“SuperJam shows are about creating moments of surprise when no one knows what will happen next,” producer Paul Peck said in news release.
“The amazing artists that are a part of the SuperJams are taking a big risk by stepping outside their comfort zones and doing something very ambitious in a very high profile performance. And they do it for the same reason we do: creating something special for the entire Bonnaroo community to experience together. We’re all in it together and get to see what happens at the same time.”
Last year, artist such as Jim James, John Oates, R. Kelly and Billy Idol collaborated together while past jam sessions have included Ben Harper, John Paul Jones, Trey Anasasio, Phil Lesh and many others.
