My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Angel Olsen, Animal Collective, and Flying Lotus are among those confirmed to perform, as Rolling Stone points out. Other acts include Jon Hopkins, Au Revoir Simone, and Rebekah Del Rio.
Lynch, who curated the lineup, will of course be on hand for the entirety of the event, leading a series of talks, including a Blue Velvet screening wth actress Isabella Rossellini. An exhibit highlighted by short film Psychogenic Fugue, which features John Malkovich portraying various classic Lynch characters, can also be seen by attendees.
Meditation-themed programs are also scheduled, featuring the music of Brian Eno’s Reflection. Pop-up shop-type stalls will sell jewelry and David Lynch “Meditating Eye” merchandise.
Tickets for Lynch’s Festival of Disruption NYC go on sale Thursday, March 8th. Proceeds benefit the David Lynch Foundation, whose mission is reducing toxic stress and trauma among at-risk populations, including victims of domestic violence, veterans suffering from PTSD, and underserved urban youth, through the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation technique.
The first two editions of the festival took place in Los Angeles and a third installment is planned for this year, according to Rolling Stone.
