Chris Hardwick Launches First-Ever ID10T Music Festival + Comic Conival

From Live Nation Entertainment – Los Angeles, CA (March 6, 2017) — A brand new experience is coming to Silicon Valley this summer. Chris Hardwick, one of the most recognizable faces in pop culture fandom and one of today’s top touring standup comedians, announced today the ID10T Music Festival & Comic Conival, a celebration of music, gaming, comedy, tech, and all things pop culture. Created and hosted by Hardwick, the groundbreaking event will combine chart-topping musicians, renowned comedians, makers, and some of the most influential people in the entertainment industry, together in one place for a once-in-a-lifetime weekend experience.
The two-day festival will take place Saturday, June 24th and Sunday, June 25th at the Shoreline Amphitheatre and surrounding grounds in Mountain View, CA. ID10T (pronounced I-D-ten-T) will feature all of the best components of a music festival, plus the addition of comedy, comic book fandom, and entertainment, all in an outdoor setting. Each day, pop culture enthusiasts will have the opportunity to roam exhibitor booths, meet comic book artists, and catch their favorite TV and movie casts on back-to-back panels and podcasts, including a special live taping of Hardwick’s own Nerdist Podcast. In the evening, the grounds will transition into a music and comedy hall for live performances from some of today’s top artists and comedians. Hardwick will be onsite to host the event, moderate the main panels, and introduce select bands and comedy performers.
Produced by Live Nation and Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE), ID10T will feature three entertainment stages; an interactive festival area with games, rides, and fan experiences; a massive exhibitor village; and a curated artist alley where some of the biggest names in comic books and entertainment will meet fans, showcase their art, discuss their craft, sign autographs, and more.
“Over the years, I’ve enjoyed an INORDINATE amount of time at music festivals, comedy festivals, comic-cons, craft fairs, and gaming conventions,” Hardwick said. “My goal with ID10T is to create a 2-day mega-event that mashes all of my favorite parts of them together, and Silicon Valley is the PERFECT place to do it.”
ID10T Creative Director and Co-Producer Rob Tweedie added, “I’m an avid comic book reader and borderline obsessive Star Wars fan, but I love music and comedy too. There’s so much crossover in pop culture, why not create a festival that celebrates all of these passions? We at SGE are so excited to see this idea to come to life, not just as creators but as attendees.”

The Shoreline Amphitheatre Main Stage will feature a diverse musical lineup with performances by Weezer, Girl Talk, Lord Huron, Crystal Castles, TV On The Radio, OK Go, Animal Collective, Car Seat Headrest, The Mowgli’s, Robert DeLong, Mothers, Ron Gallo, and more to be announced.
