Believe it or not, Arte Para Todos begins in less than a week. The fourth annual city-wide benefit for Milwaukee school art programs will bring an awesome mix of about 70 acts showcasing their talents at close to 30 venues spread throughout five neighborhoods over the course of four days (April 26-29). The ambitious event has raised approximately $60,000 in its first three years, and it looks to add to that sum considerably in year four. In short, it’s going to be the best.
If the lineup itself doesn’t have you excited yet, maybe the new Arte Para Todos compilation will do the trick. The 28-song comp features songs from many of the bands, rappers, and solo artists taking part in Arte’s 2018 iteration. In addition to standout singles from recent releases from the likes of King Eye & The Squirts, Cairns, and Dramatic Lovers, the digital comp also includes previously unreleased tracks from Paper Holland, Caley Conway, Mortgage Freeman, and many more.
Listen below to prepare yourself for Arte, and enjoy the leadoff song by Ms. Justin’s 6th grade class (featuring MC Mikal, Klassik, and SistaStrings). Oh yeah, weekend passes for Arte Para Todos are still available.
