So every summer I pick one, maybe two concerts to attend at the Hollywood Bowl. To date, nothing has topped seeing Macy Gray and Zap Mama in one night on the same stage. Nothing!

But that may be about to change.

I just received my copy of the Hollywood Bowl’s 2009 schedule and on June 21, 2009, I know where I am going to be…singing and swaying my hips to the musical stylings of Femi Kuti, Santogold, and Rapahel Saadiq.

Ya heard?

KCRW’s World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl is an ever-diverse line-up of contemporary stars and traditional artists from around the globe.

Single tickets don’t go on sale until May 2009. Subscriptions are already on sale for a series of tickets to various shows. This might not be a bad way to go considering that other performances scheduled for this summer include:

  • Patti LaBelle – August 19
  • Reggae Night VIII – August 9
  • Natalie Cole – July 15
  • Sergio Mendes – July 8
