David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption has cancelled its May 17 and 18 concerts at Brooklyn Steel with marquee performances by Garbage, Phoebe Bridgers, Mercury Rev and more.
And while a May 18 screening of Mulholland Drive will remain scheduled, organizes say the musical performances were canned due to “circumstances beyond [their] control.”
Money from the shows were set to be donated to the director’s David Lynch Foundation, which promotes the benefits of transcendental mediation.

We’re sorry to report that the two concerts on May 17 and 18 at Brooklyn Steel in partnership between Festival of Disruption and The Bowery Presents have been canceled due to circumstances beyond our control.
The previously announced screening of ‘Mulholland Drive’ on May 18 at Music Hall of Williamsburg is sold out and will go on as planned. If you purchased a 3-event pass, you will receive a refund for the price of the two performances plus fees on your credit card statement in 7-10 business days. Your original ticket to the screening will still be valid at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
We sincerely appreciate the kind and generous artists who offered to donate their time and talent. We also thank you all for buying tickets and for your enthusiasm in support of the charitable mission. All ticket buyers will be entered into a lottery to win a host of items autographed by David Lynch, including an ‘Eraserhead’ movie poster, the vinyl LP of the soundtrack from ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ and his book ‘Catching the Big Fish.’
If you purchased your tickets via AXS online or phone, your partial refund will automatically be issued to the credit card you used to purchase within 7-10 business days. Otherwise, refunds are available at your original point of purchase. If after receiving your refund you’d still like to make a tax-deductive contribution to the cause, please donate here: Donate – David Lynch Foundation.
