about
globalFEST Hangouts are fun, social events for the culturally curious in New York City. These community-building events are a place for people to meet other like-minded music fans while experiencing global music and other related activities in a variety of cultural spaces.  gF Hangouts provide attendees with one-of-a-kind experiences that encourage new connections to music and culture, often giving attendees direct access to industry experts or to artists directly.  Most events are free or low cost and are open to the general public, but require an RSVP as they often fill up in advance.
"gF Hangouts allow me to experience music from around the world, meet new people, and connect with artists."
