For its fourth consecutive year, Afro-Latino Festival will take place in New York City. This July, we’ll witness three days of art installations, talks, film screenings, and more, all centered on Afro-Latinx culture and what it means today.

Of course, the festival’s main draw is the music, and this year we’re in for a treat. The lineup includes Panamanian hip-hop giants Los Rakas, Brazil-loving producer SangoQue Bajo?!‘s earth-shaking party, and Tito Puente Jr., son of el rey del timbal. Luckily, there’s plenty of women represented, as Maluca, Princess Nokia, and Carolina Camacho are also set to perform.

This isn’t just a party you can’t miss, but also a chance to highlight an important and underrepresented part of Latinx culture. Check out the complete lineup below.


Afro-Latino Festival hits New York on July 8, 9, and 10, 2016. Early bird tickets go on sale on Wednesday, April 20.
