• Tenacious D musical comedy fest will include Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, many more!

    In the world of musical comedy, few have reached the level of success achieved by Tenacious D. And now the ingenious hard rocking duo – Jack Black and Kyle Gass – have harnessed their powers to make good on their threat to curate their own festival.

    The one-day extravaganza, dubbed Festival Supreme, will go down Oct. 19 at the Santa Monica Pier and will feature musically inclined comedians Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Adam Sandler, Fred Armisen and many more. The Neil Hamburger Band and Maya Rudolph’s Prince cover band Princess are also scheduled to perform.

    A pre-sale for Festival Supreme starts June 12 (use password “Supreme”) and tickets go on sale to the general public June 14 through Ticketmaster— $99 for general admission and $250 for VIP access. Though producers say you could expect surprise guests (in January, the D said they were inviting Flight of the Conchords and Spinal Tap), the full main lineup is below.
