Adult Swim Festival Announces Weekend Schedule
The super-sized second annual Adult Swim Festival will be held next week, November 15 and 16, at the stunning Banc of California Stadium in Downtown Los Angeles. In addition to previously announced musical acts such as Dethklok, Jamie xx, Vince Staples, Captain Murphy, and Tierra Whack, 2 Chainz and Rapsody have also been added to the music lineup. (Previously announced Lil Nas X and Young Thug will no longer be performing due to personal reasons). The one-of-a-kind, 360° fan event will include top bands and musical artists, comedians, interactive games, and experiences that only Adult Swim can bring to life.
Crunchyroll Anime Rave Announced as Official After-Party on Friday
The Crunchyroll Anime Rave has been announced as the official after-party for the Adult Swim Festival, taking place on Friday night and headlined by DJ and producer Ducky, whose genre-free style is a distinct range of melodic pop tunes to heavy rave bangers. DJ Chuck None will open the event. Crunchyroll is the world’s most popular anime brand and after several programming collaborations, this marks the first time they have partnered with Adult Swim on a live event for fans. However, the two sides have worked together previously with the upcoming BLADE RUNNER BLACK LOTUS series set to air on the programming block Toonami. Both Adult Swim and Crunchyroll are co-producing the project.
In addition to musical and comedy acts, fans will get access to one-of-a-kind experiences with new on-site activations, including The Rickflector, a machine that transports the melted minds of fans directly into the animated world of Rick and Morty and the festival debuts of Morty Slide, which will launch fans into their own “Goodbye, Moonman” daydream, and Cat Joust, where they will mount valiant feline steeds to compete for honor and adoration against friend or foe. The always popular Mechanical Hot Dog Ride is the best seat in the house and fans can escape the sun in the newly revamped Meatwad Dome to catch 360 degrees of Adult Swim premieres and favorites.
