David Lynch Brings his ‘Festival of Disruption’ to Los Angeles This October

GameStop, Inc.

Festival of Disruption Los Angeles

David Lynch, the master filmmaker whose films push the boundaries of the art form, is brining his Festival of Disruption to Los Angeles for its fourth iteration following its debut in New York earlier this year. Tickets are on sale now for the festival that is taking place at the Theater at the Ace Hotel on October 13th and 14th, which combines art, music, film, and discussions about transcendental meditation, a favorite topic of Lynch’s. Much like the films of David Lynch, Festival of Disruption promises to be an unexpected mixture of various entities into a delirious whole guaranteed to entertain, enlighten, and confound attendees.

“The Festival of Disruption is not only a music festival, it’s also an art festival and forum for speakers to share ideas and inspire creativity,” said David Lynch in a press release. “It promotes Transcendental Meditation, as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, to end suffering for the people and bring happiness and peace. The Festival of Disruption wants to disrupt the old bad, and bring in the new good!”

Headlining the musical acts appearing at the Festival of Disruption is the Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, performing his live score to the classic kung-fu masterpiece The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. If you missed RZA perform this at Beyond Fest last year or when it toured earlier this year, now is the chance to catch a hip hop legend provide a new soundtrack to a kung-fu legend.

Other musical acts at the Festival of Disruption include Liminal Soundbath (with Jónsi of Sigur Rós, Alex Somers and Paul Corley), Vic Mensa, Mike Patton and DJ QBert, Saint Motel (DJ), Dylan Carlson, Richard Reed Parry, and Justin Johnson. Other standouts include the great Jeff Goldblum with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and Dover Quartet performing music from their Twin Peaks Suite.

As for the screenings at the Festival of Disruption, David Lynch has few tricks up his sleeve. Author Barry Gifford will be giving a discussion about Wild at Heart, Lynch’s adaptation of Gifford’s work. The timing will come just as Wild at Heart lands on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory in a new special edition of the Palm D’or winning classic. Grace Jones will also be at the Festival of Disruption with a screening of the recent documentary about her Bloodlight and Bami.

Perhaps the most shocking screening at Festival of Disruption will be Jack, the 1996 Francis Ford Coppola film starring Robin Williams as a child in the body of a 40-year-old man. Coppola will be in attendance introducing the film and doing a Q&A.

“I thought it would be interesting to show what is usually considered my worst film. As films are generally like your children you tend to favor those that are the most disadvantaged,” Coppola said in the press release.

Other special events and exhibits at the Festival of Disruption include art by David Lynch and Christian Louboutin, Amber Tamblyn reading from her book Dark Sparkler, an appearance by Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia’s Carrie Brownstein, and a number of exhibits and performances that will be announced in the near future.

As mentioned earlier, tickets are now on sale for the Festival of Disruption with all net proceeds from the event going to the David Lynch Foundation, “whose mission is reducing toxic stress and trauma among at-risk populations, including victims of domestic violence, veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress, and underserved urban youth, through the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique.” The Festival of Disruption promises to quite the event for fans of David Lynch with plenty happening for those who aren’t devotees to the Twin Peaks mastermind.
