Last Summer, LMProject and local events collective ISLA, partnered up to create a summer festival in the North Shore of Staten Island with the help of the NYC Parks, Partnerships for Parks and California organization Sol Collective – naming it La Isla Bonita Summer Festival. With the goal of building a yearly cultural happening which celebrates Staten Island’s multiculturalism, La Isla Bonita Summer Festival highlights Faber Park’s beautiful waterfront park, while promoting local and global arts and culture for free to the community.
The 2nd annual La Isla Bonita Summer Festival will take place on Sunday, July 10th 2016 once again at Faber Park, with live performances from NYC tropical circus punk band Consumata Sonidera, global bass vocalista from Los Angeles with Filipina roots Gingee, and Staten Island’s female-fronted philosophical dream punk band Yeti. Cuba’s very own DJ Jigue of Guampara Music will provide an Afro-futurist vibe and Staten Island-via-Bermuda’s Dizzle gives us eclectic electric Island vibes.
