The Adult Swim Festival, a three-part special featuring performances from the live event that took place in Philadelphia in August, will air exclusively on The Roku Channel.

Starting on Sept. 23, viewers can stream the special for free with commercials.

This year’s Adult Swim Festival was a weekend of shows and experiences in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood, with performances by headliners Run The Jewels, Tierra Whack and Dethklok. El-P, Killer Mike of Run The Jewels and Tierra Whack will all be interviewed backstage for Roku’s Adult Swim Festival special.


The Roku Channel will also showcase over 120 selected episodes from more than 16 fan-favorite Adult Swim series and shorts in addition to the three-part special. Highlights include episodes of popular Adult Swim series Robot Chicken, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal, Metalocalypse and more. Vindicators 2, the digital spinoff to popular animated comedy Rick and Morty, the Rick and Morty-inspired anime shorts and Aqua Teen Hunger Force’s digital spinoff Aquadonk Side Pieces are also included.

“This year’s Adult Swim Festival was particularly special as it marked our return to live-events, and our first time bringing the Festival to the East Coast,” said Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim and Cartoon Network, in a statement. “Packed with some incredible performances, I can’t wait for our fans to experience the energy and excitement of this year’s festival thanks to The Roku Channel!”
