In true Skrillex video fashion, it’s bananacakes. Shady gangs, breakdancing, and a big light saber fight, all to some raucous melding of the past and present kings of dubstep.
We already knew some of the headliners (Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex), but the official release revealed a few new acts on the bill including Foster the People, Lorde, Avett Brothers and the rest of the bill.
The rest of the lineup will be revealed next week.
Recess features a whole grip of guests, from UK jungle progenitors Ragga Twins, who guest on the amazingly titled song “All Is Fair in Love and Brostep”) all the way up to Chance the Rapper, who collaborates on the track “Coast is Clear.”
Skrillex will be joined on the road by such EDM luminaries as Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, What So Not and Milo & Otis.
The animated clip features the group’s signature space dogs on a wild interstellar mission that quickly escalates into chaos.
Bonnaroo will also feature performances from The Flaming Lips, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Kaskade, Damon Albarn, Neutral Milk Hotel and many, many more.
