Vulture Festival is Coming to Los Angeles!

by Ariel Paredes 

Vulture Festival Presented By AT&T: at Milk Studios on May 19, 2018 in New York City.

Vulture‘s own motto is “Devouring Culture,” so it’s only right for the New York Magazine site to host a yearly festival that allows like-minded souls to come together and celebrate TV, film, music, comedy, books, and everything pop culture.

Last year, they fittingly brought the festivities from New York City to the City of Angels. This year (November 17-18), Vulture Festival offers two straight days of panels, discussions, screenings, and interactive games.

Here are some of the festival highlights we can’t wait to experience:

  • If you’re a fan of ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat or saw this year’s massive hit, Crazy Rich Asians, the conversation with Constance Wu will be a hot ticket. Saturday, November 17 at 8pm.
  • A Scrubs reunion with the show’s creator, Bill Lawrence, and the entire cast. They haven’t all been together in a public forum since the show ended in 2010. Saturday, November 17 at 5:45pm.
  • A sneak peak of the highly anticipated new Bravo series, Dear John, based on the eponymous true-crime podcast starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana. Q & A to follow! Saturday, November 17 at 1pm.
  • A conversation with Jim Carrey and New York Magazine’s very own renowned art critic Jerry Saltz. Sunday, November 18 at 1:15pm.
  • Amber Tamblyn and Roxanne Gay hosts Feminist AF, a reading series featuring some of the freshest voices in feminist writing. Tamblyn has brought along her Traveling Pants co-star America Ferrera and bestie to join in with some other special guests. Sunday, November 18 at 3:30pm.
  • True Blood: A 10th Anniversary Retrospective with Alan Ball. It’s hard to believe that Ball debuted this show on HBO a decade ago. He’s here to give some personal insights and insider scoop. Sunday, November 18 at 6:45pm.

The list of talent attached to this festival make this a must-attend event. Tickets can be purchase for an individual event or you can treat yourself to all-access pass. There’s no age restriction (with the exception of a few events in the Vulture Lounge featuring DJ’s, drinks, and pure pandemonium). The Hollywood Roosevelt hotel is the central hub, which is fitting due to its famed history and lure. 

Culture vultures, get ready!
