Culture Collide Festival 2014

Oct 16 2014

With a globally curated lineup and several stages of music throughout Echo Park, Culture Collide Festival is an international showcase of creativity. For three days this unique event dominates the LA music scene, with headlining performances by Cloud Nothings and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Enjoy indoor and outdoor music stages, along with an industry summit, afternoon happy hours, comedy and local food vendors.

For three days this fall, the neighborhood of Echo Park is taken over by Culture Collide - "A Convergence of Inspiration." Historic venues along Sunset Boulevard and beyond welcome performers from around the world. Discover new bands to love that are on the way up, and catch performances by established groups throughout the weekend. Along with music shows at places like Taix, The Echo and Echoplex, you'll find local food vendors, comedic performances and industry panels. Hit the international happy hours in the afternoons to kick off each night with a taste of live music and libations from the same homeland – such as beers and bands from the UK. Culture Collide features a globally curated lineup, pulling top-tier artists from around the world to light up the indoor and outdoor stages. This year's festival features two American headliners: Cloud Nothings and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Cloud Nothings is an alternative rock band from Cleveland, originally created as a fake band on Myspace by lead singer-songwriter Dylan Baldi. They've just released a new album on Carpark Records, Here and Nowhere Else. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is a later addition to the lineup; this indie group is from Philly and can claim David Bowie as a fan. Also on the lineup for Culture Collide 2014: Nina Persson, Quantic, Until the Ribbon Breaks, Go Back to the Zoo, Pins, Beat Connection, Pup, In the Valley Below, A Million Billion Dying Suns, Haunted Summer, The Young Wild, Rainbow Jackson, Gateway Drugs and The Bixby Dolls. Weekend wristbands are only $30. - Shilo Urban
