Los Angeles, CA (June 19, 2017) -- ID10T Music Festival & Comic Conival has revealed its full weekend schedule of music, comedy sets, panels and more. Con Man and Futurama have been added to the impressive lineup of confirmed panels alongside Portlandia, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Harmontown, Animaniacs LIVE!, The Magicians, and Stan Against Evil. A number of intimate themed panels and podcasts have also been announced, including live Nerdist Podcast tapings, panels from Valiant Entertainment and AfterShock, tech panel Robots Among Us: Fantasy vs. Reality, and many, many more. The groundbreaking, first of its kind event created and hosted by Chris Hardwick, will take over the Shoreline Amphitheatre and surrounding grounds in Mountain View, CA on Saturday, June 24th and Sunday, June 25th.
Panel additions include:
Con Man, featuring guests Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk, moderated by Chris Hardwick.
A decade has passed since Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) was an actor on the hit (well, cult hit) sci-fi show, Spectrum. Wray’s career has stalled in the vacuum of space while his best friend and former co-star, Jack Moore’s (Nathan Fillion), has hit warp speed. Aided by his truly certifiable convention booker, Bobbie (Mindy Sterling), Wray navigates the sci-fi convention circuit alongside a host of colorful who’s-whos and has-beens. He struggles with the trappings of a stagnant career, the adoration of a rabid fanbase, and an industry that only sees him as a quirky spaceship pilot.
Futurama, featuring guests Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, and Phil LaMarr.
Hatched from Matt Groening's brain, Futurama follows pizza guy Philip J. Fry (voiced by Billy West), who reawakens in 31st century New New York after a cryonics lab accident. Now part of the Planet Express delivery crew, Fry travels to the farthest reaches of the universe with his robot buddy Bender and cyclopsian love interest Leela, discovering freaky mutants, intergalactic conspiracies and other strange stuff. The panel will feature West (Philip J. Fry), Maurice LaMarche (Morbo) and Phil LaMarr(Hermes Conrad).

While we are still years away from a real-life C-3PO, robots are becoming an integral part of our lives. Come hear a panel of experts discuss how the burgeoning robotics industry is getting us closer to making C-3P0 less of a fantasy, and more of a reality.
