Think the festival fun is over when summer ends? Think again. On October 19th, Jack Black and Kyle Gass, the comic rockers behind Tenacious D, are throwing Festival Supreme, a music and comedy fest of epic proportions, at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles. Here are five reasons you should race to grab pre-sale tickets today at 1 p.m. ET.

1. Adam Sandler’s Return To Music

Adam Sandler brought us classics like “Lunch Lady” and “The Chanukah Song,” so it’s safe to say he’s got something big planned for his return to musical comedy. We’re not the only ones anticipating his musical comeback; Jack Black told USA Today, “I’m looking forward to seeing what Adam has up his sleeve. Every time he sings a song, it becomes iconic.”

2. Triumph Might Poop On Something

Triumph The Insult Comic Dog can always be counted on to bring the funny and turn a regular event into a s***show. We can’t wait to see what he’s going do at Festival Supreme.

3. Zach Galifianakis Is Even Funnier Live

Yes, Zach Galifianakis is hilarious in “The Hangover” trilogy, but this bearded dynamo’s comedic talents are even more powerful in a live setting. His performance will undoubtedly be a completely original mix of stand-up, music and maybe a manic outburst or two.

4. Tons Of “SNL” Alums

We already mentioned “Saturday Night Live” alum Adam Sandler, three-time host Zach Galifianakis and musical guest Tenacious D. This lineup also includes greats like Sarah Silverman, Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, former writer Hannibal Buress and Fred Armisen, who never misses an opportunity to incorporate music into his comedic performances.

5. Whatever You Call What Reggie Watts Does (NSFW Video)

Try explaining Reggie Watts to your mom. Kinda hard, right? That’s what makes him so awesome and why he continues to rock his way upward to superstardom. Jack Black said about the fest, “We thought, why don’t we get all the powers together just for fun, just to blow people’s minds?” With Watts on the bill, mission accomplished.
