Hannibal Buress Launches A Comedy & Music Festival Isola Fest In 800 Population Town It may sound like a joke but it is not. Comedian Hannibal Buress is doing launching a comedy and music festival in Isola, Mississippi. This a town most people have not heard of with a population of 800. Ironically the town is named after the word isolation. The inaugural Isola Fest will take place December 13 to December 15. The lineup for the event includes T-Pain, Flying Lotus, Asa Monet, Serengeti, Open Mike Eagle, Eryn Allen Kane and others. WATCH MEREBA PERFORM ECLECTIC SET ON NPR\u2019S \u2018TINY DESK\u2019 It is a head scratcher why Buress is having the festival in Isola, MS, but he explains why and it makes sense. \u201cI know this sounds like some Fyre Festival part 2 type situation but we have things pretty much in order,\u201d Buress said in a press release. \u201cOur sandwiches are just as equally trash as theirs though. Some things you just can\u2019t control. This is the town my mother\u2019s side of the family is from. My cousin owns a venue called Playaz Palace so I\u2019m getting a deal on these nights. The lineup is gonna be great.\u201d I think it is great for the city and he was able to get great talent come and perform. The festival will cost $30 for a one day pass, $75 for a 3 day pass, and $100 for a 3 day VIP package. More information and tickets can be purchased here. Check out the 3 day Isola Fest below.
