June 22, 2016 by Courtney Sulzberger

“Festival of Disruption” could not be a more apt title for David Lynch’s personally curated arts festival.

David Lynch, the infamous man behind cult classics such as the film Eraserhead and the resurfacing television show, Twin Peaks, is throwing a two-day art and music festival at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel from October 8 through 9.

The festival lineup features talks from Twin Peaks actors Kyle McLachlan and Laura Dern as well as the legendary filmmaker Mel Brooks. Event items also includes film screenings of Blue Velvet Revisited, The Elephant Man and rare Lynch shorts, and last but not least, musical performances by Robert Plant, Angelo Badalamenti, Xiu Xiu, Sky Ferreira and many more.

The program also features unique dance and art exhibits including a photography exhibit by Lynch himself, a virtual reality station by Chris Milk and a choreographed dance performance by Ryan Heffington (the man behind Sia’s “Chandelier” music video).
