EXPANSION returns to Hummingbird Ranch with a lineup of grimy electronic beats and dark bass music, part of an entire evening of entertainment that also includes live painting and art installations, fire performers, acrobats and all sorts of surprises â€“ all under the stars.
SAMIYAM of the Brainfeeder clan has garnered an international following for his shifty, slouchy, street-infused beats that sound like concrete smashing through a dirty window. KCRWâ€™s king dance DJ Jeremy Sole plays with a mosaic of musical sounds, and Babylon System dishes out a thick and aggressive brand of California dubstep. An MC and producer with an ear for unexpected hooks, LA local Jonwayne rounds out the lineup.
EXPANSION is a unique celebration of the artistic community of the West Coast and takes place outdoors at Hummingbird Ranch, with two stages and multiple food and beverage options. Explore a live art and painting gallery and get funky with the wandering performers, fire twirlers, face painting and more.
Review in LA Music Blog of Expansion Vol. VII:
In reality, it was more like a festival in the truest sense of the word. Artists worked in tandem on paintings in one corner while thumping techno was spinning in another small room. Spaces were regularly cleared on the dance floor for short performances from scantily clad acrobats and fire breathers. This was a night in which you could grab food, help yourself to a drink, and get your face painted in the space of a quarter hour if you were so inclined. It was a true celebration of artistic expression, a creative utopia which doubled up as a terrific night out. It was, for a recent addition to the city, the kind of night that makes you glad you moved to Los Angeles.
