Comedy Central, the #1 brand in comedy, Superfly, the founders behind Bonnaroo, and Outside Lands co-producer Another Planet Entertainment, announced today the initial lineup for the return of Comedy Central Presents Clusterfest, a three-day comedy and music festival now in its third year. Clusterfest will feature its most diverse lineup to date with top-tier talent, more emerging comics, music and musical comedy, podcasts and live reads. Must-see performances include John Mulaney, Patton Oswalt, Issa Rae, Ilana Glazer, The Roots, Lovett or Leave It and My Favorite Murder, one of the most successful podcasts in the country. From Friday, June 21 to Sunday, June 23, Clusterfest will take place in the heart of San Francisco at Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Loyalty pre-sale tickets will be available to returning Clusterfest patrons Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m. PT. General admission three-day and VIP on-sale starts Monday, March 11 at 10 a.m. PT. All tickets are available exclusively at www.clusterfest.com.
Clusterfest is the place to see some of the biggest names in comedy, rising stars that are soon to be household names, and exclusive “first and only” fan experiences like live podcast recordings, immersive attractions from television’s most beloved comedy shows, and live reads like Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion: with drag queens Trixie Mattel, Katya, and Peaches Christ. As with previous years, fans can expect jaw-dropping surprises to be unveiled leading up to and at the three-day festival, including additional headliners and performances.
“We’re excited to share today’s lineup that reflects the diversity of comedy across stand up, podcasts and live reads, paired with musical performances,” said Jonas Larsen, Executive Vice President, Talent and Development for Comedy Central. “Clusterfest continues to deliver a one of a kind festival experience you can’t find anywhere else.”
“Clusterfest is about presenting the breadth of comedy and music in a way that easily lends itself to discovering something new and entertaining, and this year’s stacked lineup does just that,” said Chris Sampson, EVP of Programming, Superfly. “We’re beyond excited to return this year with more top-tier and emerging talent and can’t wait to unveil even more leading up to the festival weekend.”
Once again, Clusterfest has partnered with several local nonprofits, including America Scores, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (Tenderloin Clubhouse) and United Playaz. A portion of all festival ticket sales will be donated to each organization to help support their causes in the San Francisco community.
Clusterfest has also teamed up with the renowned SF Sketchfest as a programming partner for a select number of comedic performances.
