All in person festivals for 2020, of course, had been cancelled due to COVID-19, but some opted to do a virtual event. This Summer, Adult Swim opted to throw an entire virtual festival under the banner of Adult Swim Con with a limited run of live-streams that they’d normally do up big in person.
So, with mass gatherings still being a terrible idea, Adult Swim is going virtual for their annual Adult Swim Festival, which will be streamed live on YouTube, Fri. Nov. 13th & Sat. Nov. 14th. They’ve lined-up their usual, big time suspects with Rick and Morty, The Eric Andre Show, and Run The Jewels. Assuredly, there will be more that Adult Swim has up their sleeve, but we’ll just have to wait and see until next month.
More importantly, it would seem the time at which we can all go back to normal big time comedy and music and arts festivals is still a ways away.
