TransAtlantic Festival with Beirut
The TransAtlantic Festival will be re-imagined for its 14th edition, at the North Beach Bandshell April 8- 9, 2016. Headline artists Beirut will set the stage for the long-running music series that brings modern world music to the Bandshell. New this year, the festival celebrates the special alchemy of North Beach and the historic Bandshell that has been the festival’s home since year one. The festival expands this year to spaces surrounding the Bandshell, thanks to a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to festival producers the Rhythm Foundation. This ambitious programming cements the Rhythm Foundation’s new role as managers of the facility. Some activations will include performances in adjacent Bandshell Park, a visual arts takeover of the LED marquee, video screenings on the North Beach trolley, a sunset raga on the Beatles Mandala, and after parties at neighboring bars and clubs.
