El Nicho is looking for funds

Mexico City's El Nicho has set up a fundraising campaign to cover costs

The sixth edition of the experimental music festival El Nicho happens this May. Taking place at various venues in Mexico City, the festival spans free jazz, improvisation, noise, live cinema and workshops.

This year, the festival is also seeking to cover its production, promotion and operation costs by raising money through a local crowd-sourcing platform. At the time of writing, the campaign has reached £6,387.17, that's 67 per cent of the desired amount, with 14 days to go.

So far, the line-up includes The Thing, Mats Gustafsson/Paal Nilssen-Love/ Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Mazen Kerbaj, Lori Goldston, Akira Sakata, Mike Cooper, Kassel Jaeger, and many others. It takes place between 11–15 May.
