Screen Shot 2013-10-04 at 9.27.07 AMThe days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer and that means it’s almost time for FILTER Magazine’s Culture Collide 2013.

The fourth annual Culture Collide Festival returns to Los Angeles this October 10-12, bringing three days of incredible music, art, film and more to Echo Park. As one of the most buzzed about festivals of the fall season, Culture Collide will welcome performances by some of our favorite international artists – and Slacker will be there to take part in the festivities.

We are gearing up the Slacker Tour truck so make sure to stop by! The truck will be in the parking lot of Taix French Restaurant located at 1911 W. Sunset Blvd. 

We will be handing out free 1 month premium memberships to Slacker Radio as well as tons of goodies like bags, t-shirts, and cool SWAG. Plus, high score winners of our High Striker Guitar Game can win one full year of Slacker Premium.
