A SuperJam at this year’s Bonnaroo, hosted by Skrillex, will feature classic-rock superstars Robby Krieger of the Doors and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. It all gets underway around midnight on Saturday, June 14, at the festival’s Other Tent.

Krieger, and his fellow former Doors bandmates Ray Manzarek and John Densmore, earlier collaborated with Skrillex (whose real name is Sonny Moore) on the song ‘Breakin’ a Sweat‘ for a 2010 film project called ‘Re:Generation.’

“At first, he had some beat he was doing, and I dug it,” Krieger told Music Radar. “Ray didn’t; he was like, ‘What the hell are you doing, man? Try it like this!’ [Laughs.] So Ray started playing something and Skrillex went, ‘Oh yeah, that’s cool!’ He put a beat to that, and then I played an electric sitar, which Skrillex totally f—– up and made it all electronic — you can’t even tell it’s a sitar. It’s cool.”

Skrillex’s SuperJam will also include Big Gigantic, Janelle Monae, Damian Marley and others. Bonnaroo 2014 will be held from June 12-14 at the Farm in Manchester, Tennessee. Tickets are available via the festival website.
