Tenacious D wants to create its own "Super Bowl of comedy-rock" festival

Tenacious D says it’s working on rounding up all its comedy-rock cohorts for a mega-festival to be held later this year. Festival Supreme is tentatively scheduled for October 19, 2013 at the Santa Monica Pier. So far only the D are confirmed to appear, but Jack Black and Kyle Gass tell Rolling Stone they’re aiming to construct “a fuckin’ Super Bowl of comedy-rock,” with dream acts like Flight Of The Conchords, The Lonely Island, Zach Galifianakis, Spinal Tap, Eric Idle, Tim Minchin, Neil Hamburger, Tim And Eric, people from Mr. Show, and South Park’s Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Naturally, Black cautions “there’s no guarantee who’s gonna be on the bill” and that “it might just be Tenacious D and Weird Al.” But even that lineup sounds pretty all right.
