David Lynch will organize ‘Festival of Disruption’

Festival of Disruption

David Lynch never ceases to surprise, and if it is not with his continuation of the cult series Twin Peaks, already in progress and to premiere in 2017, now he does with the news that he will organize a festival called Festival of Disruption. A promising title and worthy of its creator.

The festival, which will be held on October 8 and 9 in Los Angeles at the Ace Hotel’s event rooms, will include disciplines as varied as music, art, dance, conferences, exhibits, movies and even virtual reality.

Perhaps the strong point of the festival may be the performance titled The Music of Twin Peaks, where the great Angelo Badalamenti will be the main performer, accompanied by Xiu Xiu and Sky Ferreira (both also participating in the music of the continuation of the series).
