LOS ANGELES, CA (September 9, 2014) —KCRW’s annual Halloween fundraiser Masquerade returns on Saturday, October 25 and the public radio station is thrilled to announce the talented artists providing the soundtrack for this wildly popular event.

KCRW DJs like Jason Bentley, Valida, and Jeremy Sole spin at some of the biggest venues and most exclusive events in town – from Coachella to underground clubs – and having them all in one place is a truly special experience.

They’re joined by UK DJ Bonobo, Les Sins, which is the dance music alter-ego of Chaz Bundick (Toro y Moi), and up and coming NYC house star Chris Malinchak.

See more on this artists, including exclusive remixes, song debuts and more on the KCRW Music Blog.

We’ll host a live performance from one of London’s most enigmatic and exciting musicians, Tom Vek, as well as LA’s own world music mashup Fool’s Gold, who have a new album on the way. Hollie Cook will bring her reggae-infused sound to the Haunted Dancehall.

Gypsy jazz collective Noah and the Megafauna will roam the halls as our traveling band.

A spectacular feast for all the sense, there is absolutely no party like it in town. From stilt walkers, aerialists, and burlesque dancers to ghost stories, food trucks, and some of the most creative costumes you’ve ever seen thanks to our imaginative attendees themselves, Masquerade goes far beyond a traditional dance party.

It all takes place at The Legendary Park Plaza Hotel inside five themed rooms and around the property.

A members-only pre-sale recently ended and advance tickets are now available for $100.

They include a one-year KCRW membership (with eligibility to win ticket giveaways and a Fringe Benefits card) for non-members. Proceeds for the event support the public radio station’s programming.

A limited number of tickets will be available at the door on the night of the event for $125.

Masquerade is 21 and over and all tickets are general admission.
