The Cleveland Museum of Art has just announced the lineup for it signature summer event, Solstice, which takes place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 25. For the eighth annual Solstice, guests will once again have an opportunity to enjoy “dynamic and cutting-edge music from around the world.”
Museum galleries will be open late into the night too.
Acts scheduled to perform include disco and electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder, the Mexico City-based Latin dance band Centavrvs, the Congolese rumba act L'Orchestra Afrisa International, Brazil’s Luísa Maita and London-based electronic musician Sara Abdel-Hamid (aka Ikonika). Dante Carfagna, the collector/curator behind the groundbreaking “Boddie Recording Company” box set of Cleveland singles from the '60s and '70s, returns with his crates of obscure 45s. He spun at the very first Solstice in 2009.
