TV host and stand-up comedian Chris Hardwick has announced his very own music and comedy festival, ID10T Music Festival and Comic Conival. It will be a two-day event and take place in Silicon Valley, Calif., from June 24-25 at the Shoreline Amphitheater. It will serve as an event for “all things pop culture,” including everything you’d typically find at a comic convention, plus live music and comedy acts. According to Hardwick, “My goal with ID10T is to create a 2-day mega-event that mashes all of my favorite parts of [music festivals, comedy festivals, comic-cons, craft fairs, and gaming conventions] together, and Silicon Valley is the PERFECT place to do it.”
ID10T (pronounced I-D-10-T, for some completely useless logical reason that we’ve since been schooled on) will allow attendees to roam around the various booths, attend panels and be privy to a special live show of Hardwick’s podcast Nerdist. At night, the venues will transform into stages for live music and comedy performances. Some of the key musical performances at ID10T—excuse us, I-D-10-T—include Weezer, Girl Talk, OK GO, Animal Collective and Crystal Castles. Star comedians scheduled to participate include Demetri Martin, Nikki Glaser, and Garfunkel and Oates.

General admission tickets start at $55, with weekend passes starting at $99. Single-day VIP passes will be available in limited numbers for 21+. You can visit the festival’s website to find out more about tickets and available packages.
