The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and KCRW present an on-air series featuring previously recorded live concerts from KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl.  

As St. Vincent, Annie Clark has pushed the boundaries of pop music with her explosive experimental guitar work and the heavy pulse of electronics. As Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes brings the influence of classical music and classic R&B to his personal revelations. Cibo Matto’s 2011 concert at the Bowl was their first time performing together in a decade, bringing their free-spirited genre-blending music back to Hollywood.

Created in partnership with the LA Phil, KCRW’s World Festival has been bringing an eclectic array of artists from around the world to the Hollywood Bowl stage for 20 years. Following the cancellation of the 2020 Bowl season due to COVID-19, the LA Phil and KCRW collaborate to present highlights of past World Festivals through an exclusive series of archival concerts to be broadcast on Sundays, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., from August 23 to October 11. Join us early at 6:00 p.m. for a 30-minute DJ set inspired by each concert.

Additional featured artists in upcoming episodes include: Flying Lotus (June 17, 2018), Jimmy Cliff (July 25, 2010), Little Dragon (June 17, 2018),  Santigold (June 21, 2009), Sigur Rós (September 24, 2016), and Toro y Moi (June 16, 2019).
