THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL

 

When you receive the Hollywood Bowl program, you know everything is almost back to normal. There was no 2020 season because of the pandemic but the Bowl is back! The 2021 season will be slightly abbreviated to a four-concert series, but the program will return to six concerts in 2022. This summer, Brittany Howard, Kamasi Washington, Ziggy Marley, and James Blake are part of the lineup, here are all the details:

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and KCRW will continue their longtime partnership for the 2021 KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl. The four shows during this historic Hollywood Bowl season feature an eclectic line-up of artists including Kamasi Washington and Earl Sweatshirt (July 18) hosted by KCRW Program Director of Music Anne Litt; Reggae Night with Ziggy Marley and Wailing Souls (Aug. 1) hosted by KCRW DJ Travis Holcombe; Brittany Howard, Jamila Woods and Georgia Anne Muldrow (Sept. 18) hosted by KCRW’s co-host of Morning Becomes Eclectic Novena Carmel; and James Blake with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conducted by Thomas Wilkins (Sept. 25) hosted by KCRW’s co-host of Morning Becomes Eclectic Anthony Valadez.
