Dive In and Enjoy The Adult Swim Festival

Adult Swims approach to entertainment is aptly described on Wikipedia as “experimental, risqué, unorthodox, crude, dry, and improvisational humor”; this brash and new approach to entertainment was the brain child of Mike Lazzo. And what a child it is; realizing the potential for increasing viewing in the off hours on Cartoon Network, Lazzo, went to work creating content for the ever-restless adult population. The first original series Space Ghost Coast to Coast debuted in 1994, well before the official launch of Adult Swim, September 2nd, 2001. They burst onto the late-night scene with a plethora of raunchy and unique shows like Sealab 2021, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and The Brak Show. Fast forward 17 years and we are about to witness another first for the once obscure television block, Adult Swim Festival.

RIOT FEST SUCKS

RIOT FEST SUCKS, this tagline seeps into everything that RIOT FEST is and aims to be. Started in 2005 RIOT FEST is the festival that hates that it’s a festival; it’s the embodiment of the counter culture that spawned this rambunctious alternative punk bastard of an event. The original festival was a multi-venue hodgepodge of the best the punk, indie and metal scene had to offer with its debut artist including Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, and The Bouncing Souls.

And now I ask you to step into the belly of the beast with and explore what this rag tag group of punks and outsiders can do when you give them a home to rock their fans to the core.
