Zizek Brings Cumbia to the North
- Words: Lulu McAllister
Zizek, the famed cumbia-infused party based in Buenos Aires, will be taking on the North American club circuit with a tour that begins on April 2 at the Trans Atlantic Festival, stops at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival on April 18 and wraps up in Mexico.
As if the arrival of this hip-shaking set of dates wasn’t exciting enough, the party’s host, ZZK Records, will also be offering the chance for graphic arts buffs around the world to submit their original design for use on a Zizek party flyer through the “Remix Flyer Contest.”
Submissions may focus generally on the Zizek Club on Tour, or on a specific city that the tour will visit. Last year’s selected flyer became the basis for ZZK Records' current institutional image.
The winners in each city will receive two tickets to a show and a copy of the label’s new album, ZZK Sound Vol. 2. The winning flyers will also be showcased on zzrecords.com.
