Global Beats Festival at Wilton's Music Hall
Wednesday 14th – Saturday 17th August 2013

 

From Texas to Japan, Venezuela to Senegal,
Global Beats Festival goes big!

 

Curated by Planetman (Little Blue Ball/Passing Clouds)

 

John Wilton's Music Hall welcomed people from all over the world as they arrived into the port of London. In 2013, after two hugely successful weeks of live music from around the world in Wilton's Mahogany Bar, Global Beats graduates to the auditorium showcasing artists from all continents.

 

For four nights only, Wilton's will bring the cultural melting pot of East London under one roof. Featuring some of the best music from Senegal, USA, Italy, Portugal, Congo, Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, New Zealand and Japan, this 100% world music festival with a difference will get us into carnival spirit!
