The sixth edition of the Beat 32 electronic music festival returns to the Balcón de las Artes of the Casa del Joven Creador, in Camagüey, from February 17 to 19, as part of the celebrations of the 508th anniversary of the founding of the Villa de Santa María del Puerto del Príncipe.
Sponsored by the Camagüey branch of the Hermanos Saíz Association (AHS), the event will bring together 14 disc jockeys (DJs) from all over Cuba, with the aim of promoting the characteristic rhythms of this alternative genre among fans and the general public.
Camagüey musicians of the stature of Richar Castro Pimentel (Richy Castro), Miler Recio (Miler Kmawei), Orlando Febles (Feblex) Daniel Fundora (Hiro), Alexander Machado (Chapa X3mo) and Yuctel Rabasa (Joker), as well as artists from Havana and Holguín, will liven up with their live performances the three nights of Beat 32, an event that will return to its usual format (on-site) after the covid-19 pandemic.
Carlos Manresa, also known by the pseudonym of Charlestone, pointed out in his appearance in the digital magazine La Caja that, in addition to the usual concerts, the event will include workshops, conferences and a tattoo tent in the area near the Casino Campestre, with the presence of three masters of ink.
On Saturday, February 19, the party will move to the Melange bar-restaurant, located in the central street Cisneros, for a happy hour (a time when a drink is offered free to customers) that will close this year’s edition of the electronic music festival, Manresa said.
The Beat 32 days emerged in 2017 as a strategy of the AHS of Camagüey to present unknown DJs, to meet the growing demand for electronic music in the province, and thus turn the territory into a platform for the promotion of this event in the country, similar to those that exist in Holguín and Havana.
