This past weekend marked the first ID10T Music Festival + Comic Conival presented by Chris Hardwick. It was like Coachella meets Comic Con and there was never a dull moment.
While waiting for great bands like Weezer and OK Go to hit the stage you could browse the exhibitor village and shop for your next cosplay costume or complete your Funko collection. But that’s not all, there was Comedy Tent presented by Monster Energy Drink where you could check out a great set from comedians like Michael Ian Black and the musical comedy duo Garfunkel & Oates.
My favorite part was the Festival Tent that featured amazing panels like Con Man and Animaniacs Live! The host himself, Chris Hardwick, moderated both of these panels and I am still laughing. Alan Tudyk with his bag of swag that included a gift from @Midnight and I will definitely be hitting the Animaniacs Live! tour now because I felt like I was 7 years old again. I still sing the planet song from Pinky & the Brain to remember where they are in the solar system.
The venue was perfect for this mash up and I hope that this is a continued tradition at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. If you were unable to check it out this year, don’t miss your chance if it comes up again. Move over San Diego, this is the Con to see.
