NEW YORK (AP) — The only place you can see Skrillex jamming with Janelle Monae, Robby Krieger of The Doors, Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead, Damian Marley and Chance the Rapper is Bonnaroo.

That’s the lineup for one of Bonnaroo’s legendary Superjams, which bring together artists of different genres and put them on stage together.

Another Superjam will feature Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Chaka Khan, jazz guitarist Eric Krasno and Ben Folds.

A third will feature bluegrass artists led by Ed Helms of “The Office.”

Bonnaroo is June 12-15 in Manchester, Tennessee.
