Ready for some FUN? Bands from all over the world are going to converge in Echo Park on October 3 -6, 2012, and play their hearts out at Filter Magazine‘s Culture Collide. This local festival is a great way to discover new music and catch a listen to the sound of our collective heart beat. For 20 bucks, you get a wristband that grants you access to all the fun, exploration, and international camaraderie.
The festivities begin on Wednesday, October 3 with the Kick Off Party featuring DJs at Taix on Sunset for an eclectic night of music. The DJ’s include members of Montreal, School of Seven Bells, Penguin Prison (live DJ set with vocals), and others.
You can see the bands play on the big stage at S.O.TERIK’s Sunday Block Party, or catch many of them in intimate local venues during the week. The festival also has a Comedy Collide portion in partnership with the UCB Theater.
Where are these bands coming from, you ask? They are flying in from Brazil, Canada, Peru, United Kingdom, Hungary, Mexico, Thailand, Estonia, France, and about 15 other far out lands. Some of the bands are big stars in their home countries, but relatively unknown to us in the US.
Below is a map of the venues and the bands playing each day. Visit CultureCollide.com for more information.
