BIG GIGANTIC Heads to Bonnaroo for Superjam with Skrillex & Friends

BIG GIGANTIC know how to make an impression in a festival setting. Last month, they kicked off this year's festival run with their debut at Coachella-two stellar performances where they were joined by the Shadow Hills High School Marching Band from Indio, CA-along with their return to the CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival in Georgia to critical praise.

Now the Colorado-based duo of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken has announced they will team up with their friend Skrillex to be a part of and act as Musical Director of his Superjam at Bonnaroo. Starting Saturday night (6/14) at midnight, other artists on tap for the full out extravaganza include Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Robby Krieger, Zedd, Mickey Hart, Janelle Monae, Warpaint, Chance The Rapper, Thundercat and more.

Other festival appearances on the horizon for BIG GIGANTIC include Mysteryland, Spring Awakening, Firefly Music Festival, The Hudson Project, The Peach Music Festival and Summer Set Music & Camping Festival along with numerous dates at the Mad Decent Block Party plus their own annual headlining event ROWDYTOWN, taking place at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this September 26 and 27.

BIG GIGANTIC released their new album THE NIGHT IS YOUNG on February 11 for free via their websitewww.biggigantic.net, which already has over 70,000 downloads to date. The album debuted at #10 on theDance/Electronic Album and #18 on the Heatseekers Album Billboard charts respectively as well as #2 on theiTunes Electronic chart upon its release. An electric mix of tracks that span genres from electronic and dance to hip hop and electro soul, the 8-song album-their fifth overall-includes "Touch The Sky," a blazing instrumental that made its debut in late 2013 to critical acclaim throughout the blogosphere, as well as the crushing dubstep song "Lets Go!," the dazzling sax-hooked track "Just For The Thrill" and velvety number "Shooting Stars." The album also features the title track and party anthem "The Night Is Young" featuring vocals from their friends Cherub (Jordan Kelly and Jason Huber). The song's video-which debuted via RollingStone.com--can be seen here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEfBv4POfik&feature=youtu.be
