UPDATE: June 12, 2016:
Well it seems, that Chance wasn't willing to say goodbye to Bonnaroo after a measly two, surprise spots. Last night, the Chicago rapper popped up yet again at the Tennessee megafest, this time during Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' set to duet on "Need To Know" off the former's most recent album This Unruly Mess I've Made, as well as for a run through of the Notorious B.I.G. classic "Juicy" alongside Miguel. Check out the performances in the videos below.

One of the coolest thing about music festivals is that you never know what might happen. A regular set can be transformed into an unforgettable performance with the surprise addition of a superstar guest. It's been four years and we're still talking about hologram Tupac popping up during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's headlining performance at Coachella in 2012.
This week is Bonnaroo, the megafestival which takes place every year down south around Nashville, Tennessee, and careful watchers have been waiting to see who might show up where. The award for biggest surprise thus far has to be handed out to recent Complex cover star Chance the Rapper who made not just one, but two surprise appearances during the festivities last night.
First he was seen and heard during J. Cole's main stage performance where he busted out his song "No Problem" from his latest tape Coloring Book. He was spotted going H.A.M. again on the same song during Bryson Tiller's set a short while later.
While at Bonnaroo, Chance also linked up with indie heroes Death Cab for Cutie and is a huge fan of the group, according to guitarist, Dave Depper, who shared an Instagram of their meeting. Chance even changed the group's setlist to include their classic hit, "I Will Follow You Into the Dark." Many began speculating that this might mean the two artists could collaborate in the future, and a tweet today from Chance reading "Big 10-4" is definitely giving us hope that this is true.

Chance is obviously having a moment right now, and both times he took the stage the crowd went completely out of its mind at the mere sight of him. This of course isn't the first time that Chance found himself in Bonnaroo. Back in 2014, the Chicago rapper performed a full set of his own on the back of his then-fresh release Acid Rap on one of the smaller side stages at the festival. Put in those terms, it's incredible to think about how far he's come in such a short span.
