Cuba is looking to bring their first electronic music festival to their region sometime in 2016 and you can help. A Kickstarter campaign that launched earlier this month has the Caribbean island halfway to their goal of about a $60,000 goal. The non-profit festival, Mañana, would take place from May 4-6, 2016 in the Heredia complex in Santiago de Cuba. The event will “aim to bridge Afro-Cuban folkloric and electronic music.”
Along with some local talent like Galis, the event already has some artists “confirmed” to play. Warp Records duo Plaid and Mala have signed on. By supporting this event, you may receive gifts like sample packs, t-shirts, and festival tickets.
As of today (October 21), the campaign has about one-third of its goal with about $20,000 raised. You can join in here. This Kickstarter will end on November 13th. Mañana Cuba has their own YouTube channel. Check out this teaser video below and visit their website for more.
