Baja Beach Fest just dropped its 2019 line-up and it reads like an all-star roster of urbano’s best and brightest. The two-day festival, which runs from August 16 to August 17, is going to feature Cardi B, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, and Ozuna as its headliners.
If that weren’t enough, the rest of the performers include some serious trap and reggaeton heavyweights. On August 16, when Ozuna and Balvin take the mainstage, Brytiago, Cazzu, Jowell Y Randy, and DJ Luian are planning sets. Then, when Cardi and Bad Bunny get center billing on August 17, De La Ghetto, Alex Rose, Amenazzy, and Lyanno are all performing. There are also tons of DJ sets in between, with DJ Freddy Fresco and the DJ/viola combo Natalia & Esther.
This is the second iteration of the festival, which launched last year and has tripled its number of performers since. (2018 included Farruko and Bad Bunny). If you’re on the East Coast, visiting the festival’s setting on Rosarito Beach in Baja California might help things feel a little less bleak and cold right now—and seeing so many artists all at once is a good excuse to plan a beach vacation. Just don’t take too much time: The festival organizers report that pre-sale tickets sold out in less that 12 hours after they were announced. Luckily, there are still general admission and VIP tickets on-sale here, and the prices range from $179 (plus a $19.65 fee) for general admission and $299 (plus a $29.43 fee) for VIP passes.
