Janelle Monae has been tapped to take part in Bonnaroo Music Festival‘s annual Superjam tradition, which features various artists coming together for exciting, one-off stage collaborations.
Organizers have announced the festival will feature three SuperJams. The first will include Monae alongside Skrillex, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Chance the Rapper, Thundercat and others, while another will see Chaka Khan teaming with an eclectic group of entertainers.
“SuperJam shows are about creating moments of surprise when no one knows what will happen next,” says producer Paul Peck. “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.”
Bonnaroo 2014 takes place June 12 through 15 in Manchester, Tennessee. For more information, visit Bonnaroo.com.
