There’s nothing quite like a summer concert series. There’s Lilith Fair, Coachella, and many others, but there’s another one that you might not know about. Comedian Stephen Colbert has created his own version of a summer concert series called “Pepsi Presents Stephest Colbchella ‘012: Rocktaugustfest.” Check out footage from each night of the series on the show’s website.
“The Colbert Report,” according to its Facebook page, “features no-holds-barred discussions in which important topics of our time and daily news are treated with absolutely no seriousness whatsoever.” You can watch full episodes of the show here.
Check out the closing of Colbchella ’012:
|The Colbert Report||Mon – Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|StePhest Colbchella ’012 – Rocktaugustfest Night Four|
A few of the acts in Colbchella’s lineup include Grizzly Bear, Santigold, and The Flaming Lips.
So, if you love the idea of a summer concert series but you don’t want to stand outside for hours and strain to see the stage or stand really close to people you don’t know, check out Colbchella! It’s the perfect way to enjoy live music, artist interviews, and a little of that characteristically Colbert satire without the summer heat.
