Event description

Description

globalFEST as an organization and festival has been introducing, promoting and presenting extraordinary diverse music to U.S. audiences for 16 years. On January 6, 2019, we will return to NYC to celebrate new artists, old perspectives, and expansive cultural traditions. During this time of turbulent political change, globalFEST’s work and the work of its artists feels more urgent and more relevant to the global conversation than ever. Artists are storytellers and connectors, making the platform of this festival the start, or restart, of a long conversation between artist and audiences.

Our Venue

After a city-wide search to find a venue where globalFEST could once again be presented on 3 stages under one roof, the springboard showcase festival returns to Times Square at a new venue: The Copacabana, the Latin music hub with decades of culture-shaping history to its credit. globalFEST is proud to add to this history by presenting the 16th annual globalFEST on Sunday, January 6, 2019.
