With the last day of the Culture Collide festival in full swing, music lovers went all out for the jam-packed event across eight unique stages. Not only did Saturday provide so many of our favorite acts including our 2013 headliners, it also had one hilarious night thanks to UCBLA's Comedy Collide at 826LA.
The afternoon started with melodic and breezy performances by Polish pop singer, IZA and Dutch indie rock group, Bombay Show Pig. Parisian electronic group, Chateau Marmont jumpstarted the Taix Champagne room with their catchy melodies and fun beats. The Robert Schwartzman fronted STARSYSTEM played their first show ever, bringing Rooney fans and Culture Collide regulars together at the Church for some awesome digital pop.
Once the gorgeous LA sunset fell behind the city's iconic skyline, people waited patiently to get their groove on with King Khan & The Shrines and Liars on the Ernie Ball outdoor stage. The crowds cleared the World Stage and began to wander Sunset blvd looking for the next act on their scribbled schedules.
England's Alice Russell commanded the Echo with her voice and stage presence, while The Raveonettes brought the house down attracting diehard fans as well as fellow Culture Collide performers to their Red Bull Sound Select showcase.
Those lucky enough to get into the Rhye show at the Church were treated to a sensual experience for the eyes and the ears.
Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes put on an epic DJ set at the end of the night perfectly culminating this year’s Culture Collide Festival.
Great music, great fans, great performances. We couldn’t ask for anything more.
