Once again, Festival Hermoso Ruido is set to take over Bogotá to showcase some of the most talented up-and-coming musical projects from Latin America. The festival’s 2016 edition is taking place on September 15 to 17 in venues scattered across the Colombian capital. While the list of confirmed acts is long, this year, the programmers focused on lesser-known (but still stellar) artists, making it the perfect chance to take the pulse of the region’s music scenes.
Without a doubt, the most popular band on the lineup is Porter, who will be playing alongside the psychedelic sabrosura of Los Pirañas and Boricua punk darling AJ Dávila. Guatemalan R&B singer Jesse Baez is making his Colombian debut, and so is Diosque, who is bringing his woozy electro-pop to Bogotá all the way from Argentina. Gypsy queen Kali Mutsa and Mexican experimental pop artist I Can Chase Dragons! are also making the trek to the Colombian capital to showcase their latest projects.
As expected, Colombia has the most artists on the lineup, including rising acts like Buenas Noches, Swimz, and Ismael Ayende. Names from the U.S., Denmark, Germany, and Australia were also thrown into the mix.
Here’s the complete lineup. See you in September!
