Enjoy wacky comedy act, The Midnight Beast.
Wow. Well, at least they're not American. That kind of makes it okay somehow.
i was expecting worse.
my initial impression of Mt. Eden is "no fun zone". So i guess these guys would have the edge.

And I thought having two middle names was bad.

But yeah, pretty puzzling booking.
It's the unfunny british version of lonely island!
Just might be the worst act ever booked for the fest.

My 9 year old is looking forward to these guys. I think he's the target audience. Most kids would outgrow The Midnight Beast by 14.
take ten hits of acid and start a fight at this set
They have a video rapping about Harry Potter.
I really hope it was a bunch of GV executives sitting on a round table and one said, "Speaking of new artists for this festival, my 8 year old daughter Amber, recently told me about an upcoming youtube sensation from the UK. I think its a no brainer gentlemen."
It's just as likely that they paid GV to play, trying to add a market in Amurca.
THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT.
He must have had a lot of Uncles.
2013 = Coverchella
2011 = Perfectchella
I feel like this should go in here as well.
The Airplane Boys
I hope THE MIDNIGHT BEAST open for Radiohead. Would be the most fun I ever had at a festival...
Are they also booking a stint on iCarly while they're here?
