Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
Back for a second year, the Pura Vida urban Latin festival kicks off with a series of road shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. The line-up includes Afro-Peruvian electronica group Novalima, Argentina’s multi-Grammy nominated Kevin Johansen & The Nada, Chile’s pop princess Francisca Valenzuela (pictured) and Colombia’s Malalma.
