Do you hear something? That glorious noise is the collision of cultures. Yep, the 5th annual Culture Collide festival returned to Los Angeles last night, but don’t worry as it’s still going on through the weekend. In addition to showcasing some of the best local and national talent, Culture Collide is a rare opportunity to see rising artists from all over the world. This year’s lineup features artists from as far away as Korea, Israel, Denmark, Columbia and beyond.

We’d love to check out everything, but that’s impossible without a time turner or TARDIS, so here are some of our favorite acts playing this weekend.


Ready for some fun? Originally a punk band, Korean trio Love X Stereo make danceable electro rock with a K-Pop influence.
