2nd annual Arte Para Todos lineup and date announced

Last year a small group of local artists and musicians conceived Arte Para Todos music and art festival as a response to the defunding of art and music programming in local schools. The first year touted 70 local bands and 20+ visual artists who donated their time to help raise over $21,000 split between three local school partners.

Arte Para Todos 2016 will aim to expand the effort, adding a fourth day and additional artists and musicians. Running Thursday, April 21 through Sunday, April 24th. The events are split up by neighborhood: Thursday night in Walker’s Point, Friday night in Bay View, Saturday in Harambee and Riverwest, and Sunday on the East Side. Overall, the event will span 25 venues and feature over 100 local bands and many visual artists.

Arte Para Todos will also include an in-school music performance series at several Milwaukee schools over the next few months. The performances will be followed by a Q&A with students. These events will be closed to the public. WebsterX, The Fatty Acids, Field Report, Lorde Fredd33, Soul Low, Queen Tut, Ruth B8r Ginsburg, Mike Regal, Rhythm Changes, Lex Allen, and Sista Strings are among those playing an in-school performance.

Ticket for the festival range from $9 to $17 single day passes, with $25 full festival passes that include every performance. Tickets available HERE.
