Comedy Central announced the official lineup for its inaugural Colossal Clusterfest, a three-day extravaganza that combines comedy and music in a festival atmosphere.
The lineup includes comedians such as Kevin Hart, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Burr and Chris Hardwick, as well as musical acts such as Ice Cube, Vince Staples, Tegan and Sara and Chromeo. (Check out the full lineup here.)
The festival will feature stand-up and musical performances, live podcasts and on-stage Q&A’s across five indoor and outdoor stages. It will conclude with a 90-minute special hosted by Hardwick that will include comedian correspondents, taped performances, collaborations and behind-the-scenes segments from the weekend.
“Clusterfest will celebrate comedy in all its various forms,” Comedy Central president Kent Alterman said in a statement. “From headliners to comics-to-watch to podcasters to sketch to improv, fans of comedy are in store for an immersive experience that not only connects them to their favorite comedy stars, but also provides fantastic opportunities for discovery.”
In addition to the live entertainment, there will also be interactive attractions based on comedy shows such as “South Park,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Seinfeld” with the common theme of food.
- Attendees at the “South Park” attraction will be able to dine at replicas of notable restaurants from the show, including Tweek Bros. Coffee, Les Bos, Casa Bonita and Whistlin’ Willy’s. Fans will also have the opportunity to re-create memorable moments from the show in life-sized scenes.
- The “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”attraction will bring to life Paddy’s Pub, which will feature thematic menu items like “Beef and Beer” and “Rum Ham.”
- The apartment in “Seinfeld” served as the backdrop of some of the show’s funniest moments and attendees will be able to lounge in a full-scale replica. The attraction will also include foods from “Monk’s Cafe” and “The Soup Nazi.”
Colossal Clusterfest will be produced by Superfly and Another Planet Entertainment. The festival will take place in San Francisco at Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium from June 2 to June 4. Tickets will be available on March 2 at 10 a.m. PT via www.clusterfest.com.
