Sponsored by Filter Magazine, the festival Culture Collide hosts its second edition in October in Los Angeles, California. It will be five days (5 to 9 Oct) of shows with artists from over 23 different countries. So far the line up has Lindstrøm (Norway), Liam Finn (New Zealand), Isobel Campbell (Scotland), Buck 65 (Canada), Jason Falkner (USA), Rainbow Arabia (USA) Suave as Hell (Mexico) and many others.
For now, Brazil is represented by São Paulo’s CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy). But the festival must announce two other Brazilian names, thanks to an action promoted by BM&A. Artists can register on the site Toque no Brasil until July 15.
The shows take place in different venues in the east area of Los Angeles and will once again end with the Toyota Antics Block Party, a free all-day event in Echo Park on Sunday, October 9th.
“We couldn’t be more excited about what we have planned for this year,” said Alan Miller, co-owner and co-founder of FILTER Magazine. “2011 will feature more intimate venues within walking distance from each other as well as even more participating countries from all over the world.”
Besides music, the event features film screenings and happy hours featuring food and drink from around the world. The first edition last year, handled 10 000 people and the expectations for 2011 are even greater. After all, as stated by Filter Magazine, “Good Music Will Prevail.”
