Earl Sweatshirt To Play In Bonnaroo’s First Hip-Hop Superjam


The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will be taking place on the 13th-16th of June in Manchester, Tennessee, and features a huge line-up of big name artists from all genres. One of the highlights of last years festival was the Superjam! You may remember at last years event, D’Angelo surprised everyone by coming out during the Questlove Superjam, and gave his first performance on American soil in 12 years! It has just been announced that this year will see the first Hip Hop Superjam, and it has an impressive lineup! Joining Earl on stage will be: RZA, Schoolboy Q, Solange, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes. They will be backed by New York city funk band Lettuce!

With RZA and Earl on the stage together I think we can expect to hear a live version of 150 Molasses, the Earl & RZA collab taken from Earl’s upcoming album, Doris. How do you think Earl will fare when he’s on the same stage as some of the biggest names in hip hop? Do you think he will be able to hold his own up there, let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

The festival takes place soon but some tickets are still available and can be purchased from the festival website: http://www.bonnaroo.com/
