The Lonely Island's first ever live concert performance has been set for later this year in San Francisco.

The trio's surely historic performance was announced Tuesday as part of the lineup for Comedy Central's Clusterfest. Jon Stewart, Desus Nice and the Kid Mero, Maria Bamford, Trevor Noah, Tiffany Haddish, Third Eye Blind, Action Bronson, Salt-N-Pepa, and more are also set for the second edition of the three-day event.

Comedy Central put together this year's Clusterfest with help from Superfly and Another Planet Entertainment. The event runs June 1-3, with tickets already available via the official website.

The Lonely Island's last major work was their 2016 film (and accompanying soundtrack) Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which followed the life of a Bieber-esque singer known as Conner4Real. The trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone have also served as producers on the critically acclaimed 2017 film Brigsby Bear and this year's Freeform series Alone Together. At this June's Clusterfest, the Lonely Island will likely be pulling from their extended catalog of somber and reflective compositions. Their last non-soundtrack release was 2013's The Wack Album, featuring Kendrick Lamar and Billie Joe Armstrong. Though they've had their fair share of TV appearances, the group has never put together a full-on live performance in a concert setting.

Though the film underperformed at the box office, Samberg isn't sweating it, noting in an interview last year that Popstar was still finding its audience in the same way that previous Island creations have. "It definitely feels similar to [Hot Rod and MacGruber], in that it didn't come out the way we were hoping in terms of the theater launch," Samberg toldUSA Today. "But already, the word of mouth on it has been wonderful. I've noticed, which is the ultimate dream, that other people who work in comedy have gone out of their way to tell us that they like it."

If you robbed yourself of its joys upon release in 2016, just stop it already. Find and watch Popstar now, by any means necessary.
