Jack Black and Kyle Gass — the hard-rocking comedy duo collectively known as Tenacious D — have announced the 2016 lineup for their annual Festival Supreme. Scheduled for October 29th at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall & Grounds, this year’s event promises an out of this world experience with three space-themed venues.
Two of music’s premiere comic acts, Flight of the Conchords and “Weird Al” Yankovic, top the laugh fest. They’ll be joined by a bevy of big-name comedians, including Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre, Tim Heidecker, Jenny Slate, and Michael Carbonaro.
Other musical acts include Mac DeMarco, LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang, The Vandals, Garfunkel and Oates, and DJ Douggpound. There’s also a set dedicated specifically to the music of Wet Hot American Summer, as well as something dubbed Tenacious DJ, which we can only assume will see Black and Gass at the turntables.
Tickets go on sale Friday, August 12th at 10 a.m. PST at the Festival Supreme website.

You might be asking, what the hell do they mean, “off-world extravaganza?” Well, if you’d just let them finish…
Our space fest features three separate performance venues. Omega Stage is outside under the Milky Way Galaxy and will be rocking all night long with the likes of FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS and “WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC!!!
The gorgeous Shrine Auditorium will be transformed into the Crab Nebula Stage with PATTON OSWALT and SARAH SILVERMAN throwing down hard, and that’s just the tip of the meteorite!
The Expo Hall will be home to the Space Disco where bad ass DJ’s will keep your asses moving thru hyperspace like a boss.
What else? How about a carefully curated retro-arcade with the greatest space themed pinball machines and video games in human history. Rad space themed rides & slides. The best food in the Cosmos.
