Colbert is calling the event "StePhest Colbchella '012: RocktAugustFest." The performances and Colbert's interviews with each act will be shown on "The Report" during the week of Aug. 13.

Colbert quipped in a statement: "Does Bonnaroo have cruise missiles? I think not."

The comedian last year hosted a week of music in his studio, dubbing the event "StePhest Colbchella '011: Rock You Like a Thirst-Icane.
