It seems like it was just yesterday that we were drooling all over Festival Ceremonia‘s lineup announcement, and now we’re only days away from the 12-hour affair. It’ll be packed with big names and up-and-coming acts, including Nas, Disclosure, Anderson .Paak, Gesaffelstein, and more. But, of course, the true flavor comes courtesy of the Latin American and Spanish artists. This year they’re top-notch, and that’s why we decided to highlight some of the most exciting things happening this Saturday at Centro Dinámico Pegaso. We also put together a special Apple Music playlist to get you nice and ready for the occasion. Take a peek.

For many 90s kids, the Titán reunion show is set to be the highlight of the evening. Eleven years later, Moderatto’s Jay de la Cueva, Julián Lede, and Su Majestad Imperial Silverio aren’t back just to cash in on nostalgia, but they’re actually presenting the music from an upcoming album, led by recently released single “Dama Fina.” This will be one to remember.
Spotify's Ley Seca Stage
Only days before the festival, a new surprise stage was announced. And even though it’ll be tiny and you won’t be able to drink alcohol in it, it’ll feature sets from Niño Árbol, Wasted Fates, and Rosa Pistola (featuring Tomasa del Real). No one saw this coming, but now that it’s here, we can’t stop thinking about it.
Finesse All Stars
We already predicted a gigantic 2016 for Finesse Records, and this All Stars performance is proof. Teen Flirt, Adrian Be, Monvco, and many more members of the Finesse family will take the Absolut Camp Roswell stage and fill it with future bass sounds. We have no idea what to expect, but it’ll surely be magical.
Mexican debuts: Jesse Báez and Marineros
R&B crooner Jesse Baez, who just put out his BAEZ EP, is debuting his solo show at Ceremonia. Chilean duo Marineros will also set foot on a Mexican stage for the first time, and will perform the songs from their fabulous album O Marineros. They’re both in charge of opening the Vans stage.
Hip-hop hecho en casa
Ibero American hip-hop has always been well-represented at Festival Ceremonia, and this year is no exception. With the presence of people like Boricua MC Álvaro Díaz, Spanish Drake-loving rapper C. Tangana, and Houston’s Svntv Mverte, there’s no doubt hands will be in the air.
