Couch potatoes and COVID/crowd-wary fans rejoice! In person festivals might be back, but the Adult Swim Festival is keeping it digital. This doesn’t mean they’re playing it safe content-wise, though. The two-day streaming event is action-packed with music and cosmic/cool comedic entertainment. Watch parties for shows such as Mr. Pickles, Metalocalypse, Robot Chicken and The Eric Andre Show make up the bulk of the bash and musical performances and videos from Lil Baby, Karol G, 21 Savage, Flying Lotus, Alessia Kara, Angel Olson and Run the Jewels pump it up. There will also be special talks and hubs such as a Squidbillies “Retrospective and Hootenanny” with Dave Willis, Jim Fortier, Dana Snyder, Daniel McDevitt (Rusty) and Elizabeth Cook (Tammy) and a “free-draw” with Michael Cusack and Zach Hadel, discussing their new Adult Swim series, Smiling Friends, along with special guests Nick Wolfhard and Finn Wolfhard. The multi-faceted online extravaganza will also offer a Rick and Morty “Global Rick-Off” (with Justin Roiland, Spencer Grammer, Sarah Chalke and Chris Parnell facing off against their Global voice-cast counterparts on Rick and Morty trivia); a panel featuring Blade Runner 2049, Blackout 2022 and Blade Runner: Black Lotus creators followed by a new episode of Blade Runner: Black Lotus; and an Aqua Teen Hunger Force panel celebrating the inimitable animated show and discussing what’s next for the Force. Fri., Nov. 12- Sat., Nov. 13. Watch it all YouTube now.
