Kollaboration Acoustic 4 will take place on Saturday, August 27th 2010, 8:30pm at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood as the second Kollaboration show to take place in Southern California this year. Following the main Kollaboration 10 show attended by almost 6,000 people at the Shrine Auditorium this past March, Kollaboration is bringing its Acoustic 4 show back to a more intimate location at the Ford Amphitheatre for another unique evening of music and inspiring new talents.
Acoustic 4 will bring to the arena musicians that perform their vocals with various non?electrical instruments such as percussion, string and woodwind instruments. For this annual talent competition, 11 musical acts were selected after a competitive round of auditions in front of Kollaboration judges. Similar to our past performers, many of this year’s performers have already garnered well established internet and regional followings, while others are looking to Acoustic 4 to introduce their talents to a new fan base. This year’s performers to compete for First Place and $1,000 include: Alex & Jackie (Alex Hwang & Jackie Kim), Justis Kao, Esna Yoon, FlowEthics, Sorah Yang & Brian Fang, Peony (Judy Lee), Hippie Hippie Hoorah, Lily Bee (Lilian Bui), Johnny Le & Iris Leonardo, Misscarolinexoxo and Dawen.
In addition to the talent in the competition, Acoustic 4 will feature YouTube phenom and Hollywood Records recording artist Marié Digby as a guest judge and headlining performer.
Kollaboration Acoustic 4 will also present a special comedy performance “ChannelPKtown” by Kollaboration’s very own founder Paul “PK” Kim.
Kollaboration Acoustic 4 continues to be a platform for the growing number of API (Asian Pacific Islander) artists and the greater API community to come together to celebrate under the summer stars in an intimate and friendly environment. The Ford Amphitheatre is located at 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East, Hollywood, CA 90068, just off the 101 Hollywood Freeway across from the Hollywood Bowl and south of Universal Studios. The amphitheatre grounds open at 6:30PM, two hours before show time at 8:30PM, for picnicking.
