"LOCAL FESTIVAL WITH A GLOBAL VIBE"
CELEBRATES ITS 10TH ANNIVERSARY
Manifestivus will celebrate their 10th anniversary this year in Cabot, VT. Curated by Toubab Krewe, Manifestivus is a "local festival with a global vibe" featuring an eclectic lineup of international musicians in a Vermont country setting. The festival takes place August 17-18 and will feature headlining sets by Toubab Krewe each night. Toubab Krewe bassist and Cabot native David Pransky founded Manifestivus in 2002.
The festival takes place on the 93-acre Pransky family farm in a town just shy of 250 residents. Just six hours north of New York City, and three hours from Boston or Montreal, the site boasts hiking trails, swimming ponds and woodland forest. Manifestivus offers on-site camping, yoga, West African dancing and drumming, community art projects and local crafts, healthy living seminars, workshops, costume theme nights, various culinary vendors, and cross-cultural immersion.
Advanced price tickets are on sale now. General admission advanced price two-day passes are $55. Tickets will then move to the regular price of $65 on June 15th, and can be purchased for $80 at the gate. Manifestivus will donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to Toubab Krewe's School House Krewe Project, which is raising funds for the construction of a music school in Bamako, Mali.
