Asheville, get ready for an epic world music throwdown this weekend on the stage at Pisgah Brewing Company. The amazing weekend long Carnavalito Music Festival returns with the best in world music and craft brews. Scheduled for June 13 & 14 at Pisgah Brewing Company, Carnavalito promises a weekend of great music from the world travelling (but locally grown) Toubab Krewe and friends.
As Pisgah and Toubab Krewe embark upon the 3rd Annual CARNAVALITO this Friday and Saturday, Toubab Krewe will perform on both nights, with an intimate indoor stage show on Friday evening and an all-day extravaganza featuring a full set from the band on Saturday, along with Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 headlining. Seun Kuti is the son of Afrobeat founder and composer Fela Kuti, and travels with the band his father performed with for more than 2 decades, Egypt 80. As if Seun Kuti traveling with father’s band isn’t enough to get you excited…you should note that this is one of only 4 east coast US dates for Seun and crew this year.
Pisgah Brewing will also release a special Toubab Brewe (see what they did there) for the occasion, focusing on their Extra Pale Ale recipe with some variations. This year’s batch will focus on Citra and Simcoe hops for a bitter and fruity profile, while keeping the malt rich but not too heavy for a smooth drinkability. The Toubab Brewe I.P.A. (International Pale Ale) will be available on tap starting Friday afternoon.
Tickets for the Friday show are $12 in Advance, $15 day of the show, with doors opening at 8pm, and the music starting at 9pm. For Saturday’s Carnavalito experience, tickets are $24.50 in Advance, $28 Day of Show for an entire evening of world music. The much coveted Hopster VIP tickets are also available for just $55, which included a tour of brewery and special venue seating, as well as two day passes.
Worried about driving or transportation? No problem, Pisgah has made arrangements with the Brews Cruise, which will transport people both days from Asheville to the brewery for just $10 (link goes to the Shuttle Information).
