The Colbert Report funnyman gets into the summer concert game.

The hilariously-titled StePhest Colbchella ‘012: RocktAugustFest will take place August 10 aboard New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Colbert hosted a similarly-themed concert series last year, with performances by Talib Kweli, Florence + the Machine, and Bon Iver.

The festival lineup includes Grizzly Bear, the Flaming Lips, Grandmaster Flash, Santigold, and fun. The Colbert Report will broadcast Colbert’s interviews with the bands, along with their performances, during the following week. Watch Colbert’s announcement below, featuring Michael Stipe. (So that’s what he’s been up to…)
