David Lynch is launching a music festival

Festival of Disruption will feature performances from Sky Ferreira, Xiu Xiu and more, with films, exhibits and appearances by Debbie Harry, Kyle MacLachlan and others

For any Twin Peaks lovers, the eerie, dream-poppy soundtrack is one of the elements that make it so iconic. Alongside Grammy-winning composer Angelo Badalamenti who scored Twin Peaks, David Lynch has worked on a number of musical projects in the past. Now, the cult director has announced his own music festival.

Festival of Disruption will take place from October 8-9 this year in Los Angeles. Some of the big names said to be performing include St. Vincent, Questlove, Robert Plant and Jon Hopkins. Sky Ferreira and Xiu Xiu will perform music from the show. The weekend will also include panels and talks with the show’s stars Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern, exhibits, films and virtual reality installations. Debbie Harry and Mel Brooks are additionally meant to make appearances.

Lynch’s links with music go back to several experimental and electropop projects. He produced and wrote lyrics of two of Julee Cruise’s albums alongside Angelo Badalamenti, and made his debut as a singer himself with two tracks on Inland Empire back in 2006. The universe of Twin Peaks also included appearances from David Bowie and Chris Isaak, and the new reboot includes a plethora of musicians on the acting roster, from Sky Ferriera to Sharon Van Etten and Chrysta Bell.

Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday June 24, with all the proceeds going towards the David Lynch Foundation, which works with domestic violence survivors, veterans and young people at risk of trauma and toxic stress.
