Adult Swim will host its first comedy/music festival in Los Angeles in October 2018

Adult Swim has put on live interactive tours in summers past, but this October, it’ll go one step further by throwing its first-ever Adult Swim Festival.

Happening Oct. 6-7, 2018, in downtown Los Angeles, the Adult Swim Festival will include two stages of comedy and music, along with premiere screenings, stand-up, gaming, and more. Run the Jewels will headline the music lineup.

Which makes a lot more sense when you see Run the Jewels brand-new music video with Rick and Morty!

“Adult Swim already does television like no one else. Now it’s time to bring that same unique approach to a one-of-a-kind festival experience,” said Jill King, senior vice president of marketing and partnerships for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang. “The Adult Swim Festival will feature everything fans love about us… great shows, cutting edge music, and a passionate community to enjoy it all together.”

In addition to the limited weekend festival passes, more Single Day and Weekend Passes will be available in May. Fans can sign up to receive the latest news on festival activities, updated music line-ups and ticketing options at
