David Lynch Announces Los Angeles Edition Of Festival Of Disruption 2018 With ‘Most Disruptive Lineup Yet’

Hot on the heels of the first New York edition of Festival of Disruption last month, David Lynch today announced the return of the festival to its trusted Los Angeles venue, the Theatre at the dowtown Ace Hotel, on October 13 and 14, 2018.

UPDATE (9/12/2018): Several additions to the lineup have been announced (see names in bold below) and single day, daytime and evening passes starting at $55 have been made available (scroll down for an overview).

The Festival of Disruption is not only a music festival, its also an art festival and forum for speakers to share ideas and inspire creativity. 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!
—David Lynch
