Combine the stars of rock with comedy, and you have a good idea of the lineup for Festival Supreme 2015. This year’s one-day festival includes performances by a litany of who’s who in music and comedy, with Tenacious D, The Kids in the Hall, Amy Poehler and Big Freedia among the performers on the lineup. Festival Supreme will be held October 10 at Shrine Expo Hall & Grounds in Los Angeles.
Festival Supreme is curated by Tenacious D, and the duo — Jack Black and Kyle Gass — will perform a jazz set during the festival. A total of more than 30 musical acts and comedy performers have been announced in this year’s lineup. Jenny Slate, Adam Devine of “Workaholics,” Andrew W.K. in what festival organizers noted is a “Very Special Solo Show” and Finesse Mitchell are also scheduled to perform.
