I think it's safe to say that the Superjam concept has now taken off, and that being asked to participate is now becoming a privilege for artists. So what of the future? Who do we see curating future installments? Ben Folds was a great limited participant this year, but I'd love to see him get his own. Zac Brown? Chris Thile? St. Vincent? Who would you like to see?
2/25: RL Grime w/Djemba Djemba
2/28: Preservation Hall Jazz Band w/Flat Land
3/14: Hundred Waters w/Mitski
3/28: Sylvan Esso
4/12: Phillip Glass and Tim Fain
5/8-5/9: Big Guava Music Festival
I doubt he would come by himself just for a superjam and I don't really see RHCP coming back so soon, but if we're talking big names, a Flea curated superjam would be pretty boss. I know he's really into Afrobeat/tribal sounding stuff and it would be cool to check out a really percussion and bass heavy superjam.
I'd also like to see another hip hop/r&b superjam which I imagine Pharrell would do quite nicely.

I feel like Avicii could do just as well as Skrillex, I'm not sure why but I have faith. Also, they need a disco/funky themed superjam, so anything with people like Niles Rodgers or any other living disco legends and I'd be there. Finally, I was trying to think of someone in hip-hop who has worked with enough people and is a large enough name where they could almost bring in anybody and it'd work out. Maybe a producer like Dr. Dre? I'm probably not thinking hard enough.
