Listen & Learn: Introducing the Solstice 2014 Artist Line-Up

The Cleveland Museum of Art presents Solstice, Cleveland’s hottest summer music festival, on Saturday, June 21 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Art. In its sixth year, Solstice guests will have an opportunity to enjoy dynamic and cutting-edge music from around the world and preview Yoga: The Art of Transformation, the ground-breaking exhibition that explores yoga’s visual history.

This year’s Solstice features music simultaneously on two stages. The atrium stage will feature innovative musicians and DJs including Kouyaté-Neerman, DJ Arkin Allen and Awesome Tapes From Africa. The outdoor stage on the museum’s south terrace will feature bands including Very Be Careful, Suphala, Salar System and Mercan Dede & Secret Tribe. After sundown, the museum building comes alive with visuals by the Joshua Light Show.

We sat down with Tom Welsh, Director of City Stages at the Cleveland Museum of Art, to talk more about the artists performing at this year's Solstice in our first series podcast below.
