FRIDAY, AUGUST 21st
JASON BENTLEY (KCRW / Coachella)
Supporting set by Miguel Alvarado
+ DJ Kevvy-Kev in the Bonaparte Room
As one of the most influential DJs in L.A., the U.S. and also, increasingly, the world, KCRW music director and host of its groundbreaking Morning Becomes Eclectic show, Jason Bentley is emerging as an accomplished curator and new breed of tastemaker, not just for music, but for many of the finer things in life. Bentley is at ease entertaining an elite group at an upscale industry event as much as he is commanding the masses at Coachella, spinning tracks in a packed Yuma tent, in between interviewing artists for the festival live streams on YouTube and AXS.TV to an estimated 11 million viewers worldwide.
