Major Lazer put on a huge concert in Havana, Cuba back in 2016. To commemorate this historic event, Major Lazer has put together a documentary to showcase the behind-the-scenes work that went into putting on this concert and the youth culture that exists in Cuba right now. A brand-new trailer has just hit for “Give Me Future,” the documentary that will debut on Nov. 17.
The Major Lazer concert in Cuba was the first one to take place by a major American artist after President Obama opened up diplomatic relations with the country. A huge number of people showed up for the concert, which was amazing considering the lack of Internet access for much of the nation.
The documentary, “Give Me Future” delves not only into putting on the concert but also on the culture and Cubans who have longed for this type of entertainment and music to finally come into their country. It includes a “pirate” who gets information others in Cuba can’t get as well as a young Cuban girl who talks about what EDM music means to her. Also included is unreleased live tracks from Diplo as well as a number of Cuban musical artists showcased in the documentary.
“Give Me Future” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah and also screened at South by Southwest, the premiere film and music festival in Austin, Texas. The documentary will premiere on Apple Music on Nov. 17 and Major Lazer will also release a new soundtrack titled Give Me Future – Music From and Inspired by the Film.
