Comedian and TV host Stephen Colbert is putting together a music festival on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier, featuring performances from Grizzly Bear, The Flaming Lips, Santigold, Fun and Grandmaster Flash. It's name: StePhest Colbchella '012: Rocktaugustfest!, because that's easy to remember.

There is a link for tickets to the Friday, Aug. 10, festival on Colbert's website, colbertnation.com, but it seems like the plan is to give most of them away via social media contests.

Here's a recent posting on the show's Facebook page:
