David Lynch's Festival of Disruption returns to Los Angeles, California on Oct. 13 and 14, and on Thursday organizers announced the slate of performers and programs for this year's event. Watch past Festival of Disruption highlights by playing the video above, then be sure to get your tickets for the 2018 festival through AXS so as not to miss this year's star-studded experience.
The 2018 Festival of Disruption will be held at Los Angeles's Theatre at Ace Hotel, where names from the worlds of music and film will perform and interact with fans at special events. According to the press release, Mercury Rev will be performing in what is the duo's first Los Angeles set in a decade. Other headliners include rising star TOKiMONSTA and RZA, who will use the music of Wu-Tang Clan to provide an all-new score for the 1978 martial arts film "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin."
Jonsi from Sigur Ros will collaborate with Alex Somers and Paul Corley for "a meditative light and sound experience" called Liminal Soundbath, while Saint Motel, Vic Mensa and a team-up between Mike Patton and DJ QBert are also on the schedule. Per the press release, Festival of Disruption will be only the second time that Patton and DJ QBert have performed together (the first was at San Francisco's The Chapel in February).
Legendary singer Grace Jones will attend, but not as a performer; she's screening her new documentary entitled "Bloodlight and Bami," and participating in a question and answer session after the film. Jones is one of many high-profile speakers having talks at the festival, along with award-winning filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola and Lynch himself.
Thursday's press release also announced that Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra will no longer be appearing at Festival of Disruption, due to an unspecified scheduling conflict. But even with that subtraction, this lineup still has plenty of reasons to spend a weekend with David Lynch and his friends. Whatever genres of music you like, there is something for everyone at this one of a kind festival.
