They've also shared the lineup for the November event, which includes A Made Up Sound, Call Super, Sassy J and Hashman Deejay.
It will now take place across two venues—the first is in Downtown on Friday night, where A Made Up Sound is billed alongside Loefah and others. Saturday's main event goes down at a nature reserve called Ectágono, about 45 minutes outside of Downtown. The lineup for that one includes Baltra, Call Super, Djrum, Etapp Kyle, Sassy J, Peanut Butter Wolf and a back-to-back set from Hashman Deejay and Neo Image.
All profits from the event will go to Comunal, an organization that unites "architecture and engineering in order to generate a technological innovation for building systems using regional materials to benefit local communities." Together, Fascinoma and Comunal will take on the long-term project of rebuilding the venue in Metepec, Atlixco, which was hit particularly hard by the September 19th earthquake.
The organizers explained the venue change in a statement: "The unfortunate events of last month gravely affected our dear community in Metepec-Atlixco, Puebla, which up until then had been the festival's home. In spite of that, we have worked arduously to keep the spirit of Fascinoma alive, as a proof of the commitment we've made to our followers. We've decided to transport the experience to Mexico City for the occasion."
