Late Night DJs and MC Luis Guzman at Manifestivus

Manifestivus Festival is pleased to announce Luis Guzmán as the official Master of Ceremonies for its 10th annual festival held August 17 & 18 in Cabot, VT. Along with MC Guzmán, Manifestivus have added 14 more acts including late night DJs Sabo, Marc Remillard, Chris Pattison, Ben Arsenal, and Worldtown, performance artists The Human Canvas, and Vermont bands Funkwagon, SEROTHEFT and TallGrass GetDown to its globally infused lineup. Tickets to the “local festival with a global vibe” are currently on sale here.  A complete lineup is listed below. More activities and amenities are yet to be announced.
 
MC Luis Guzmán is a family friend of the Manifestivus founders and resides in the North East Kingdom with his family. The comedian and actor has been a staple in films over the years, and is best known for his character roles in Boogie Nights and Carlito’s Way. Guzmán’s comedic wit is bound to be an entertaining addition to the daily festival activities.
 
Hosted by Toubab Krewe, Manifestivus features an eclectic lineup of international musicians in a Vermont country setting. Toubab Krewe bassist and Cabot native David Pransky founded Manifestivus in 2002. The festival takes place on the 93-acre Pransky family farm located just six hours north of New York City, and three hours from Boston or Montreal. Manifestivus offers on-site camping, yoga, West African dancing and drumming, community art projects and local crafts, healthy living seminars, workshops, costume theme nights, various culinary vendors, and cross-cultural immersion.
 
Two-day passes are $65 in advance and $85 at the gate. Manifestivus will donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to Toubab Krewe's School House Krewe Project, which is raising funds for the construction of a music school in Bamako, Mali. www.instruments4africa.org
