Vulture today announced final additions to the lineup for its annual pop-culture extravaganza, Vulture Festival, which is returning for an eighth year in a row with a weekend of high-profile events where everything you love about Vulture comes to life right before your very eyes. Taking place from November 13-14 at The Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles, the festival will bring fans an incredible array of actors in conversation, screenings, sing alongs, and unique surprises that only Vulture can provide.

Joining the first and second wave of event announcements, final additions to the lineup include:

• Jeff Goldblum Beguiling Us While Talking with His Hands: With a storied career spanning decades—in which he’s escaped dinosaurs, fought aliens, solved murders, and imprisoned Thor—Jeff Goldblum’s mere presence can elevate any project into high art. Lucky for us, he’s agreed to come to Vulture Festival to discuss all of his work that you know and love, while also being the star you know and love who is very beguiling and talks with his hands.

• Jerry Saltz: Coffee by the Hockney Pool: New York Magazine’s Pulitzer Prize–winning senior art critic Jerry Saltz joins us for a big, fancy discussion of art, being an artist, and being an art fan. This talk, based on his extremely valuable book How to Be an Artist, is for anyone who lies awake at night because of existential, anxiety-related reasons and not just noisy neighbors. And as a bonus, you’ll be sitting right next to the real-life work of art by famed British artist David Hockney that is the Hollywood Roosevelt pool, with a fresh cup of coffee included.

• Pablo Larraín Film School: Pablo Larraín’s Academy Award–nominated film No created a portrait of Chile at the end of the Pinochet era, and just three years later, he confronted the horrors of child abuse with the Golden Globe–nominated drama The Club. Now, with his upcoming film Spencer, Larraín has created one of the most affecting tellings of the late royal’s story. We sit down with the filmmaker to discuss five films that have shaped the way he approaches his craft, and how these influences helped him shape his groundbreaking work.

• Search Party Season 5: A Special Sneak Peek: If you were hoping Vulture Festival would offer you clues about the upcoming fifth season of HBO Max’s Search Party, you’re in luck! Cast members Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Early, and John Reynolds, as well as showrunners Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, join us for a special sneak peek at what’s to come next in the comedy series.

• Special Advance Screening of the Queen Sugar Season-6 Finale Episode: It’s a family reunion of sorts as Kofi Siriboe, Tina Lifford, Nicholas L. Ashe, and Tammy Townsend join us for a special screening of the sixth-season finale of Queen Sugar, followed by an in-depth conversation about this truly epic series.

• The Price is Right by the Pool: a 50th Anniversary Celebration: Vulture Festival is celebrating the 50th season of The Price is Right by bringing two of the show’s most beloved games to the Hollywood Roosevelt pool, with free access to all ticket-holding festival attendees. The Big Wheel and Hole in One will be live and in-person so this is your big chance to feel like a contestant, ready to win it all.

• A Sneak Peek at YELLOWJACKETS, Presented by SHOWTIME®: 
Come enjoy an advanced screening of the new SHOWTIME original series Yellowjackets. When members of a female soccer team survive a plane crash that leaves them stranded in the remote northern wilderness, they go from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans. The show follows this descent, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later. Join cast members Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci, Tawny Cypress, Ella Purnell, Samantha Hanratty, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher and Sophie Nélisse for a conversation after the screening.

On sale today, tickets to Vulture Festival events range from $25 to $40. Tickets include access to the Vulture Lounge poolside at The Hollywood Roosevelt and two complimentary drink tickets. Follow @VultureFestival and @Vulture for updates.
