KCRW’s World Festival At The Hollywood Bowl Has Announced Its 2018 Lineup

TV On The Radio


The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association in collaboration with KCRW has announced the 20th season of KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, and it’s a good one. The festival is happening every year, and brings renown artists together for a beautiful summer at the legendary Bowl, but who is coming this year? As usual, there are genres of music for everyone, from the Grammy-nominated musician Flying Lotus and his majestic beats to the always entertaining Father John Misty and his Pure Comedy, the line up is very eclectic:

In June, producer Flying Lotus will take the Bowl on a 3D space-age voyage with the help of Swedish electro-pop group Little Dragon, and the bowl will turn into a funk R&B, soul and ’80s inspired party.

It’s probably the first time for Father John Misty to perform at the Bowl, but count on him to bring his sophisticated folk sound and unique take on the modern world and love, while he will be sharing the place with Gillian Welch and her longtime musical partner David Rawlings, for an intimate set.

The following Sunday will feature the annual reggae festival with master of lover’s rock Beres Hammond, the ‘African Bob Marley’, Alpha Blondy, and fresh roots lyricist Protoje.

Bon Iver and the electrifying contemporary dance company TU Dance will collaborate for a West Coast premiere, offering us an unprecedented performance with choreography by Uri Sands and new music by Justin Vernon,

Finally, Grizzly Bear and TV on the Radio will unite for the last and soulful evening of the season, with new music for both bands, and ethereal electronic artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith as an opener.

Here is the complete lineup of KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl:

On Sunday, June 17, at 7 PM: FLYING LOTUS and LITTLE DRAGON with additional artist TBA

On Sunday, June 24, at 7 PM: FATHER JOHN MISTY and GILLIAN WELCH with additional artist TBA
