Run the Jewels' Rick and Morty Video Arrives, Adult Swim Festival Announced

Run the Jewels' Rick and Morty Video Arrives, Adult Swim Festival Announced

The announcement came today along with a Run the Jewels music video starring Rick and Morty in a Quentin Tarantino, Men in Black, and Star Wars influenced mix of weirdness. But this time, they're more than prepared to rob them, grow a Gromflomite and shoot it, and take down anyone else in their way.

In addition to their intergalactic visual, Run The Jewels also unveiled the news that they will be headlining the Adult Swim Festival this October. The trippy, action-packed video was directed by Juan Meza-León and was released on the same day Adult Swim announced Run the Jewels will headline the inaugural Adult Swim Festival.

Adult Swim has been putting on shows, collaborating with fans, and creating some terrific mixers on the green at Comic-Cons for the past few years, but now the network is getting a festival all it's own. The Adult Swim Singles Program has generated almost 20 million SoundCloud streams over the last three years, featuring more than 100 artists. More music and comedy acts will be announced later.

Adult Swim Festival will feature music and comedy performances, panel discussions, animated programming, including all your favorite shows, and live, interactive gaming. Jill King, SVP Marketing and Partnerships for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Boomerang had this to say about the festival.
