Adult Swim Fest Day #1: Eric Andre, Aqua Teen, Run The Jewels & More

With Adult Swim Fest set to go live and virtual in only a few hours (running Friday, November 13, and Saturday, November 14), Cartoon Network's late-night alter-ego has released a full rundown on what viewers can take a deep-dive into on the first day, starting at 2 pm ET (with a line-up of artists that should exactly what we need to drag our collective butts across the 5 pm finish line).

By now, most of you know that over the course of the two days you'll have a chance to check out never-before-seen performances (including Mastodon, Robyn from Club DOMO, and Kaytranada), live-stream watch parties (like Three Busy Debras and Space Ghost Coast to Coast), Run The Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P) debuting their Cyberpunk 2077 music video, a special edition of "Toonami," and more. Okay, fine! Want more? How about Tuca and Bertie and Aqua Teen Hunger Force panels? Maybe your earholes might like to know that Thundercat and Deftones are on the schedule?  But the folks behind Rick and Morty are thinking "bigger picture" than just their "Celebration Panel"- flexing their corporate sponsorship muscles to offer viewers a number of opportunities to win some cool prizes (we're eyeing what's going on in The Citadel of Ricks Giftshop).
