On Sunday, August 7, innovative songwriter/musician Sufjan Stevens will headline the Hollywood Bowl alongside Kurt Vile and the Violators and Ibeyi.
Stevens’ one-off gig comes a day after he will take the stage at the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco (and his set is right before Radiohead‘s main stage slot, too).

Vile has performed at many high-profile music festivals to date, so those arriving early to the Bowl for Stevens will no doubt enjoy the laid-back vibes of Vile and the Violators as well.
Ibeyi, who are also on the Outside Lands bill, will open up the evening. Comprised of two French-Cuban sisters, their debut album came out last year and features the single River:
