Major Lazer made history when they touched down on the colorful island of Havana, Cuba this past March. The EDM trifecta became one of the first major U.S. acts to play there since the restoration of diplomatic ties between Washington and Havana.
Diplo and his soundsystem were expecting a few thousand to show up to hear them play, but to thier surprise almost half a million pulled up to support. “400,000 💪 IN HAVANA!!! THANK YOU 🇨🇺 FOR A WEEKEND WE WILL NEVER FORGET 🙏 📷:@shanemccauley,” Major Lazer posted on thier Instagram post performance.
Luckily for those who weren’t there, Major Lazer’s awesome performance will be featured in upcoming documentary film, Give Me More.
The Austin Peters directed project highlights Cuba’s burgeoning youth movement through “authentic stories of cultural and political shifts in a country on the precipice of change” amid performance footage that promises to exhilarate those tuned in.
Give Me More is set to premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival this month. Visit sundance.org for more information.
