INFO

 

globalFEST ON THE ROAD is a flexible touring and curating concept based on globalFEST’s annual flagship festival. globalFEST guest curates in both performing arts and commercial settings, including such influential events as SXSW, Bonnaroo, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, as well as internationally at Festival d’Ile de France, and for socially conscious brands including TOMS. These curatorial opportunities raise the profile and visibility of gF artistsand builds audiences by having them appear in unexpected stages where more general music fans have the opportunity to discover the excitement of global sounds. In 2016, On The Road expanded to include gF’s first national tour, Creole Carnival, booked by CAMI Music. Featuring artists Emeline Michel (Haiti), Brushy One-String (Jamaica), and Casuarina (Brazil), the tour went to over 25 cities in the U.S. and Canada. gF’s next tour The New Golden Age of Latin Music featuring two Mexican-American bands, Orkesta Mendoza and Las Cafeteras, are available for the 2018 season, booked by IMG Artists.
