Last year Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report presented his StePhest Colbchella '011: Rock You Like a Thirst-Icane. However, it was simply a series of musical guests presented on his show. This year as he presents StePhest Colbchella '012: RocktAugustFest it is an actually music festival. On Friday, August 10, 2012, Stephen Colbert will host the RocktAugustFest at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in New York City. Performing at the event will be red hot alternative pop band fun., The Flaming Lips, Santigold, Grizzly Bear, and Grandmaster Flash. Commenting on comparisons between his festivals and other top music festivals, Stephen Colbert said, "Does Bonnaroo have cruise missiles? I think not."
