Manifestivus: Toubab Krewe, Diblo Dibala, Zongo Junction, Barika, Voodoo Fix and More

Cabot, VT’s Manifestivus will celebrate its 10th anniversary this summer. Curated and headlined by Toubab Krewe, this year’s Manifestivus will take place on August 17 and 18, featuring an international cast of bands like Diblo Dibala (Senegal), Rootz Underground (Jamaica), Elastic Bond (Miami, FL), Awa Sangho (Mali), Zongo Junction (Brooklyn, NY), Barika (Burlington, VT), Fear Nuttin Band (Springfield, MA) and Ila Mawana (Boston MA). Other confirmed acts include: Voodoo Fix (Los Angeles, CA), Benyoro (New York, NY), Kat Wright and the Indomidable Soul Band (Burlington, VT) and Afinque (Burlington, VT). Toubab Krewe will also perform both days.

The festival was founded by Toubab Krewe bassist and Cabot native David Pransky in 2002 before Toubab Krewe officially formed and takes place each summer on the 93-acre Pransky family farm in a town just shy of 250 residents.

Within Manifestivus is the Mini-festivus catering to the 200+ children that attend the festival each year. The family friendly environment introduces younger generations to music and different cultures from all around the world. The Mini-festivus features arts and crafts, puppets, storytelling, a bouncy house, an instrument-making workshop, roaming performers and of course live music performances. Kids 13 and younger are free when accompanied by a paid adult.
