The Lineup For 2022 KCRW Festival At The Hollywood Bowl Is Here

KCRW Festival At The Hollywood Bowl
Grace Jones is part of KCRW Festival At The Hollywood Bowl

It’s good to receive the upcoming lineup for the Hollywood Bowl, it’s certainly a sign that things are getting back to normal. The LA Philharmonic and KCRW have announced the program for the annual KCRW Festival at the Hollywood Bowl and the six shows feature an eclectic line-up of artists from July to September:

On Sunday, July 24, film composer A.R. Rahman, mostly famous for his score to Slumdog Millionaire and his numerous collaborations with rockstars such as Mick Jagger and Bono, will bring his blend of Indian classical music, orchestral arrangements, and electronic music.

On Sunday, August 7, the Bowl offers a laid-back night of mellow electro-pop and enchanted disco with Polo & Pan and Parcels.

On Sunday, August 14, it’s one for three artists. If I am not familiar with opener Celisse, good times are guaranteed with Durand Jones & The Indications and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. The night is one for amateurs of soul-powered rock’n’roll and funk-infused soul.

On Sunday, August 21, Flying Lotus (whom Iman just saw at Carnegie Hall) brings his Afrofuturism and eccentric electronic soundscapes. Three-time Grammy nominees Hiatus Kaiyote will open the night with laidback electric soul out of grooving piano, Nai Palm’s smoky vocals, and perpetually shape-shifting rhythms. Both artists will team up with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conducted by Thomas Wilkins.

On Sunday, September 18, it’s Reggae Night XX and some of the genre’s biggest names: UB40, The Original Wailers featuring Al Anderson, Maxi Priest, and Big Mountain.

And finally, on Sunday, September 25, we have the night that interests me the most because it features the amazing Grace Jones. It will be quite a show to see her at the Bowl, she will certainly put the beautiful place on fire: an icon performing at an iconic venue. CHVRCHES, with their washes of synthesizer and Lauren Mayberry’s soaring voice, will open for a big outdoor night of music.

Of course, this is just one part of the Hollywood Bowl season, and there are many other nights for a very busy summer: Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina will play two nights on July 15 and 16, Ricky Martin will play two nights with the LA Philharmonic on July 22 and 23, there will be a Tribute to Peggy Lee and Frank Sinatra with special guests Billie Eilish, Debbie Harry, Dianne Reeves, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and more on July 27, Boyz II Men and TLC will play on July 29, John Fogerty on July 30, a-ha on July 31, Sheryl Crow and Keb’ Mo’ on August 3, while August 10 will bring a Big Easy bash at the Bowl with Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown featuring Trombone Shorty, Tank and the Bangas, Big Freedia, Cyril Neville: The Uptown Ruler, George Porter Jr, and Dumpstaphunk, The Soul Rebels. Diana Ross will play two nights on August 26 and 27, and there’s gonna be three nights with Duran Duran and Fireworks on September 9, 10, and 11. These are just some highlights, and you can check the entire season at 

​​Tickets for the Hollywood Bowl 2022 summer season will be available online at or via phone at (323) 850-2000. Right now, only subscriptions are available now, but the Hollywood Bowl Box Office will open for single ticket sales on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at 10.00 AM.
