TOUBAB KREWE’S CARNAVALITO COMES TO THE PISGAH BREWING COMPANY THIS JULY

Campground and Weekend Shuttle Add To The Experience

Toubab Krewe’s CARNAVALITO, a two-day mini-fest, has been announced to take place at the Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, NC on Friday, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th, 2012. The outdoor event will feature headlining sets from Toubab Krewe as well as a different roster of supporting bands and DJs each day including Donna the Buffalo, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Rayna Gellert and DJ Chalice. DJ Equal will top off both nights with indoor late night sets. A shuttle system is conveniently available to travel between a local campground and the event.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a KOA campground is located just one mile from the venue. CARNAVALITO attendees are encouraged to stay for the weekend and receive a 10% discount on tent and RV camping with the code PB. All sites come equipped with water and electricity. View the map and reserve camping spaces online through koa.com/campgrounds/asheville-east.

Shuttles will be traveling between the campground and venue as well as between downtown Asheville and the Pisgah Brewery. Look for shuttle details coming in May at pisgahbrewing.com.

Tickets are $41 (two-day admission) and $26 (one-day admission) and go on sale Tuesday, May 1st through the Pisgah Brewing Company event site (pisgahbrewing.com/events). VIP packages will also be available for $76 (two-day VIP admission) and $51 (one-day VIP admission) and include early entry to the event, a private guided brewery tour and tasting, preferred stage viewing, and more. All attendees who purchase a two-day ticket by July 1, 2012 will receive an unreleased Toubab Krewe summer EP and a Toubab Krewe beverage koozie.

CARNAVALITO is a family friendly event. Kids ages 10 and under are free with a ticketed adult. On Saturday, children of all ages will dance to the rhythms and rhymes of Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, aka “The king of kid-hop.”

Toubab Krewe will donate one dollar from every CARNAVALITO ticket purchased to Instruments for Africa, a not-for-profit organization that aims to empower underprivileged and at-risk youth in Mali through the preservation of traditional music and arts. Toubab Krewe and Instruments for Africa have launched a campaign to build the Krewe House, a music school project set to break ground in 2013.
