In an exclusive interview with the magazine “La Revista de la Una”, a member of the Kraken Festival‘s organizing committee, Jorge Meza invited all citizens to participate in this important free addmission event .
He also added that people can bring school supplies that will be delivered to children who can’t afford to pay for them, and need them to attend school.
The Kraken Festival Facebook page provides the following description: “The festival is inspired by the mythical sea creature commonly pictured as some kind of giant octopus or squid, emerging from the depths of the ocean, who attacks ships and devoures their crews”.
“Therefore, the festival aims to be a platform for emerging artists who remain anonymous but have decided to get serious about electronic music and the artistic and cultural movement that comes with it”.
This festival will feature performers, such as Locura Básica, Mexican Wolf, Medusattack, Chubby Bunny, Tutu Manik, Nasal, Sexim, Nallely Diamantina, Siglo Veinte, One Up, León Roller Derby, Frichos, Monster Truck and La Pecera, among others.
