In what has to be the best (and also my favorite) music festivals of the year, Filter Magazine's Third Annual Culture Collide Festival returns in October with a stellar musical line-up that includes School of Seven Bells, Class Actress and Marit Larsen.  Also headlining are of Montreal, Junip and Clinic with more additional artists and activities annnounced in the coming weeks.

Held on October 4-7, Culture Collide celebrates and brings together musical acts from across the globe to perform in clubs and venues in a five-block radius of Echo Park that culminates in an all-day block party to close out the festival.  $20 wristbands gets you into all the performances, intimate acoustic sets, film screenings and happy hours that feature free food and drinks from other cultures.  Get your writstbands quick! They've sold out quickly the past two years.
