Comedy Central has announced that on the heels of a gigantic debut festival last summer in San Francisco, Colossal Clusterfest will return to the city by the bay June 1st through June 3rd.

Comedy Central is teaming up again with production co, Superfly (brains behind Bonnaroo) and Another Planet Entertainment to create another massive comedy and music festival that they promise will outdo their first. In 2018 they will return to San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza an Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. No talent has been announced yet but they’re so confident that they’re offering presale tickets with discounts starting February 1st.

Last year’s inaugural Clusterfest brought together more than 45,000 fans to experience a celebration of comedy in all forms including performances from more than 70 comedians and musical artists highlighted by Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Bill Burr, Sarah Silverman, Ice Cube, Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Tegan & Sara, Pete Davidson, Fred Armisen, Hasan Minhaj, Chromeo, Hannibal Buress, Natasha Leggero, Rachel Bloom, Lizzo, Vince Staples, and many more. Expect to see them up their game. They’ll also be bringing back the interactive attractions and selfie opportunities like last year’s Seinfeld apartment replica, Paddy’s Pub restaurant and more.

Pre-sale kicks off Thursday, February 1 at 10:00 a.m. PT offering 3-Day VIP packages, as well as a limited amount of discounted Early Bird tickets for 3-Day General Admission. New for 2018, Clusterfest will be offering a layaway plan for all ticket types that will allow ticket buyers the option to split the cost of purchase into multiple payments over time. Early Bird 3-Day GA tickets start at $199.50 and VIP packages start at $599.50. Tickets will be available exclusively at
