Mango Disco is global community of musicians, artists, venues, DJs and non-profits that are connecting communities through the arts. We use the arts to build connection between cultures, educating against prejudice and showcasing incredible talent from all over the world. We foster collaboration between diverse local and international artists and charities, bringing people together to celebrate creativity and diversity at our unique events.
About International Soundclash Festival
The International Soundclash Festival is a cutting-edge international festival of global music, arts, and film. The event grows out of the success of previous Mango Disco events in London, Paris, Tokyo and Sheffield over the last few years, which have seen Mango Disco collaborate with more than 200 artists, attract around 5,000 people, and raise £3,562 for local and international charities. The festival showcases how music and the arts have joined communities together as they stand up to racism and xenophobia, and how the same must be done today.
Inspired by the success of music festivals WOMAD, Shambala, and the Global Health Film festival, our team of promoters and artists have come together to link music and the visual arts in a family friendly format, in collaboration with a diverse range of local and international partners – artists, independent businesses, and charities. The festival connects local venues and artists, commissioning new and collaborative performances from a mix of local and international artists, and establishing Sheffield as a viable location for world/global music festival, with the potential legacy for dilution of commissions around the city and its creative institutions and economy.
Diversity and Quality
Mango Disco celebrates diversity at their events by collaborating with local and international artists that represent a wide range of ethnicities and nationalities. Creating a platform for such artists we seek to educate against ignorance, challenge prejudice, and promote the cultural contribution of BME and other underrepresented members of society.
Mango Disco collaborate with both local and high-quality international artists, selected by our experienced team of promoters. In partnership with two of the world’s leading global music promoters and labels, Movimientos (London) and Groovalizacion (Paris), Mango Disco have access to a huge variety of the most cutting-edge artists in the world music scene.
