The Adult Swim Festival provides wacky, weird fun for fans in Los Angeles – Daily News

The 2nd Annual Adult Swim Festival, held Friday and Saturday at Banc of California Stadium in Downtown Los Angeles, was wacky, weird and fun.

Though its activations were big, bold and colorful, it definitely wasn’t for kids. On Saturday, thousands of fans — some clad in some pretty epic cosplay — flocked through the venue gates and into this adult playground filled with live music and stand-up comedy on three stages, show premieres, screenings, oversize rides and games and an out of control live version of Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show.”

All of the stages and activities were contained inside the stadium (probably because of the Rams Fan Zone set up just outside in preparation for the football game at the adjacent Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sunday). The main show screening area, panel and comedy stage were located inside the LAFC field level VIP club, though there was some sound that bled into that area during quieter moments.

“It’s hard to compete with the full production hip-hop show outside,” comedian Joe Pera of Adult Swim’s “Joe Pera Talks with You,” quipped during his set. He combated the noise by cranking up Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and tossing out various kinds of apples into the audience to get them fired up. Never in history have people been so enthusiastic about having apples tossed at them during a comedy show. It was insane and a delight to be a part of.

On the main stages, rapper Cupcakke got the crowd fired up and twerking along to her music. Latin folk artist Helado Negro set a cool vibe for fans as they grooved to his music or enjoyed some of the activations as the sun began to set.

Fans hopped onto a giant hot dog and rode it like a mechanical bull and while holding on for dear life, spectators launched squishy foam hot dogs at them. Others battled it out while Cat Jousting, riding huge cartoon cats while attempting to whack each other with foam pool noodles. There were several patrons who waited in line multiple times to go down the ginormous “Rick & Morty” slide. There was also some crazy imagery happening inside the Meatwad Dome where there were show screenings and also short, trippy segments during which fans could lie down on the ground on blankets and look up as a variety of strange and colorful visuals were projected onto the inside of the dome.
