David Lynch announces L.A. music festival

Surrealist mastermind David Lynch has announced plans for a star-studded music festival at the Ace Hotel in L.A. Taking place October 8-9, the Festival of Disruption will be headlined by Robert Plant and the Sensational Shape Shifters, St. Vincent, Rhye, Jon Hopkins, and an all-star cast performing the music of Twin Peaks, including Sky Ferreira, Xiu Xiu, and composer Angelo Badalamenti. As for DJ duties, they will be handled by Questlove and KCRW’s Jason Bentley.

The festival will also host a series of talks from Twin Peaks stars Kyle Maclachlan and Laura Dern, Blondie members Chris Stein and Debbie Harry, and director Mel Brooks. Of course, a Lynch-hosted festival would not be complete without his legendary filmography, so prepare for screenings of rare Lynch shorts and a revisiting of Blue Velvet, among others.

Tickets for the Festival of Disruption go on sale Friday, July 24 at 10 AM PT via AXS.
