Vulture festival


Pin It

Last chance to get your tickets to Vulture Festival presented by AT&T!

Hey, Upper East Siders who live in L.A.! Vulture here, and in case you hadn’t heard, the CW’s Gossip Girl is being rebooted by the just and loving media gods whom we are all happy to serve (a.k.a. HBO Max). If you know us, you know there is simply no way we could let a Vulture Festival come and go without celebrating this, as this is the show we once declared genius and also stated, completely calmly, that it is the Greatest Show of All Time. (It also kind of predicted the future, so there’s that.) That’s why this Sunday, November 10, Vulture’s very own Hunter Harris is sitting down with executive producer and writer of the original series Joshua Safran to take a fond look back at the much beloved episode “Hi, Society.” They’ll also talk about Safran’s upcoming musical drama Soundtrack, and of course, we’ll ply him with drinks and demand he tell us what’s to come in this 2020 Gossip Girl reboot. It’ll be fine, don’t worry.

t’s not often that the fourth installment of an animated saga has a breakout star, but somehow, Forky has become just that. And it’s not every day that you can come to Vulture Festival to see the people behind your favorite piece of trash toy live and in-person, but that is completely and totally what’s happening. That right, we’re bringing the team behind Forky to the Hollywood Roosevelt to share with us exactly what makes this li’l guy just so dang special. Veep’s Tony Hale, who gives Forky’s neurosis and love of trash a voice, will be sitting down for a chat with Toy Story 4animator Claudio de Oliveira to talk about taking a simple plastic fork from trash to treasure to cinema to series. As an added bonus, they’ll also be giving us a special screening of two brand-new shorts from the upcoming Disney+ series Forky Asks a Question ahead of the show’s official premiere. So if you consider yourself a Disney fan, a Forky fan, or you just want to impress your friends and/or children with your in-depth knowledge of everything Forky, you won’t want to miss it.

If you haven’t heard, because either you’ve been lost in the woods for weeks or you’ve been ignoring us, it’s almost time for Vulture Festival. And while it’s still basically a poolside party with all your favorite celebrities, it is now, as of this moment, also educational.New York Magazine’s senior art critic Jerry Saltz is packing up his sunscreen and coming all the way out to Los Angeles to help you (yes, you!) learn to be an artist. Whether you’re an aspiring Rembrandt or a budding classroom doodler, he can help you become better, faster, stronger — um, creatively, of course. This talk, based on his extremely valuable article that is soon to be a book, is for anyone who lays awake at night because of existential, anxiety-related reasons and not just noisy neighbors. Let Saltz take away your terror of doing and make you just start, by sharing his thinking on how to shut your demons right the hell up and get to work. Tickets just went on sale, so grab some while they last.

We’re thrilled to announce we’ve added an event with the cast of NBC’s Superstoreto our already stacked lineup. It’s the show we at Vulture have long argued is deserving of so much more, and if you agree, you can join all of us November 9 at our poolside festival at the Hollywood Roosevelt for a celebration of one of our favorite comedies along with the show’s cast. America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney, Lauren Ash, Nico Santos, and Kaliko Kauahi will all be there to give us a true “employees-only” look at what goes into making five seasons of groundbreaking television

In this world, you’re presented with the opportunity to attend Vulture Festival along with the cast and creators of Man in the High Castle’s alternate universe. Join cast members Rufus Sewell, Jason O’Mara, Chelah Horsdal, Joel de la Fuente, and Frances Turner, along with executive producers Isa Dick Hackett and David Scarpa, for a conversation about what brings this complex, nuanced tale to life and a special sneak peek at what’s to come in the exciting conclusion of the series in season four.

While your normie friends are home playing Scrabble with the decidedly non-famous, we’ll be hanging with some of Bachelor Nation’s brightest and most competitive stars. Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon, Jade Roper-Tolbert and Tanner TolbertKatie Morton and Chris Bukowski, and Cassie Randolph and Colton Underwood enjoy a night in (at Vulture Festival), playing all sorts of party, board, and dating games.

After the awards-show speeches end and the tweets have been sent, the rest of the work to change Hollywood begins. Join Dascha Polanco of Orange Is the New BlackThis Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson, and The Flash’s Candice Patton in a conversation moderated by Cameron Esposito about how mentorship programs can open doors for the industry’s habitually excluded. And find out what the future of making it in entertainment will, and should, look like. All proceeds from this event’s ticket sales will go toward Ghetto Film School, supporting the next generation of great American storytellers.

We can’t tell you exactly what it is, but, if you’ve been through it, you know. Host Tracy Clayton sits down with Tamron Hall for a live recording of the Mailchimp Original podcast, Going Through It. They’ll talk about facing down a pivotal moment where they had to make a choice: quit, or keep going.
