One of the best music (and most interesting) festivals to debut in 2013 was the Tenacious D curated Festival Supreme at the Santa Monica Pier. Held on October 19th - long after the festival season has died down - the event featured an atypical lineup of comedians showing off their musical chops. Although the logistics of holding the festival at the Santa Monica pier proved to be a challenge (specifically for the crowd who struggled to get from stage to stage), the festival was a success from a sheer talent perspective.
In addition to Tenacious D, performers at Festival Supreme included: Tim and Eric, The Mr. Show Experience, The Mighty Boosh, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Adam Sandler, The Gregory Brothers, Tig Notaro, Hannibal Buress, Eric Idle, Fred Armisen, Will Forte, Princess, Demetri Martin, Dynasty Handbag, Reggie Watts, Beardyman, Craig Robinson and the Nasty Delicious, Garfunkel and Oates, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Neil Hamburger Band. The event also featured surprise appearances by Conan O'Brien & Lonely Island
