Adult Swim's wonderfully twisted creative forces (or Dark Elder Gods, depending on your perspective and style of worship – we're not ones to judge) are gearing up for a second serving of the Adult Swim Festival, running Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16 at Banc Of California Stadium in Los Angeles, California. With ticket prices starting at $49, the multimedia fest includes live music, comedy performers, and special experiences and screenings (Robot Chicken Intergalatic Power Summit, a 360° fan experience, etc).
If you're a Rick and Morty fan, then you're in for an even bigger treat: an exclusive, premiere screening of Rick and Morty's fourth season (though no word yet on if Dan Harmon and/or Justin Roiland will make an appearance). As for music, here's a look at the current line-up for both days (subject to change):
Friday, November 15: Dethklok, Captain Murphy, Geto Boys, Tim Hecker & The Konoyo Ensemble, Iron Reagan, HEALTH, Inter Arma, Speedy Ortiz, Cooly G, DAWN, Sarah Squirm, Conner O'Malley, and Three Busy Debras.
Saturday, November 16: Jamie xx, Vince Staples, The Eric Andre Show Live!, Tierra Whack, Young Thug, Lil Nas X, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, CupcakKe clipping., Negative Gemini, No Joy, Joe Pera, Jena Friedman, and Wham City.
