After last year's event was an apparent success, Filter Magazine will be holding its second Culture Collide Festival this October in Los Angeles. It's a four-day event that brings together bands from across the world and aims to create a multi-cultural musical experience. Last year, this meant that bands such as Tokyo Police Club, Phantogram, Klaxons, Monotonix, the Boxer Rebellion, Sebastien Tellier, and many others filled the festival's lineup. Or, in broader terms, there were 54 bands from 16 countries.
While the festival will no doubt feature that same wide variety of acts, it will also include more intimate venues within talking distance from each other. There will also apparently be more participating countries, according to Filter co-owner and co-founder Alan Miller.
No acts have been announced for this year's festival, though we expect that will occur in the next few months. Wristbands providing access to all the showcases will again be $20. More information can be found on the festival's website, Culture Collide.
