Adult Swim President Michael Ouweleen had the following to say about this year’s exciting schedule:

“Adult Swim has always been more than its shows. It’s also about music, comedy, art, and, as often as possible, getting out there with the actual fans in real life and celebrating the stuff we love together. So that’s what this is about. And it’s free. But you have to promise us you’ll wear sunscreen and stay hydrated. And maybe wear a hat. Your mom asked that we make sure.”

Fans will also be able to seek reprieve from the California heat with a hydration station, which will offer  fruit-infused Hint Water and vitamin-boosted Hint+ Vitamin. A special pink hearse celebrating the July 26 season two premiere of the Adult Swim animated comedy Teenage Euthanasia will also be handing out bottles of Hint Water during the festival. And if festival goers need a snack, Pop-Tarts® has invited them into The Toasting Room: A Pop-Tarts Dining Experience, where they can enjoy a three-course prix fixe menu featuring a variety of iconic flavors and leave with special mementos.

All festival activities are free to attend on a first-come-first-serve basis, with advance reservations available now for the most popular experiences at The location for the festival can be seen below.
