New Orleans Artists Take Over Bonnaroo Superjam

Bonnaroo has become known for its annual Saturday night superjam for having some of the most memorable performances of the year.

And 2017 might’ve topped the rest with Chance the Rapper making an appearance to bring his own rendition of hip-hop classics such as Outkast’s “Hey Ya” and Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg’s “Nuttin But a G Thang”. (See below)

Curated by New Orleans’ own Preservation Hall Jazz Band, this superjam featured other artists who call NOLA home such as George Porter Jr., Tank and the Bangas, Jon Batiste, and Boyfriend. Named appropriately as the “Soul Shakedown”, this super jam featured tons of soul covers by some of Bonnaroo’s funkiest artists. Check out the full list below:
