Global Fest: Bringing Musicians Together

Published: 2003-12-03
In the wake of terrorist attacks in the US, international musicians have found it extremely difficult and at times impossible to enter North America in order to play a gig. As a result, Global Fest has been created. On Saturday January 10, 2004 artists from all over the world will converge in New York City to perform at the first Global Fest. Festival promoters hope that this will be the first of an annual event.

The Public Theater including Joe's Pub will be the sight of the festival. Sixteen artists from Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean are scheduled to perform on three stages from 8pm to 1:30am. A DJ will provide more music until closing time at 4am. Tickets for Global Fest are $40US and are available through Tele-charge at 212-2339-6200 or at
