Our favorite annual local music experience will return to Los Angeles on October 10th through the 12th. Filter Magazine‘s Culture Collide is a music festival that brings over 70 bands and artists from all over the world to play in Echo Park venues for three days. You really never know what you are going to discover. It is like an international buffet of delicious music for the soul.
Last year, we wrote that at the Culture Collide festival you get to listen to the sound of our collective heart beat. To get a sense of the eclectic mix of artists you can experience, look at the line up for a single stage on Saturday (Taix, front lounge):
3pm – Secret Shine, United Kingdom
4pm – PanSTARRS, Egypt
5pm – Float Fall, Belgium
6pm – Optic Yellow Felt, Brazil
7pm – Terry Poison, Isreal
8:10 – Beneen Squad, Senegal
9:20 – Frida Sundemo, Sweden
10:30 – Adi Ulmansky, Isreal
11:40 – Majuice, Russia
You just went all around the world and that was just one day on one stage (there are eight venues within walking distance taking part in Culture Collide). With the wristband that only costs 30 bucks, you also gain access to the Comedy Collide mini-fest put on by the Upright Citizens Brigade and the artist panel discussions featuring Moby, Shepard Fairey, Dhani Harrison and industry heavyweights. As a special tip, do not miss the performance by Jared James Nichols on Friday night. He blew our socks off last year.
See you there!
