After a triumphant turn last year, Festival NRMAL returns home to Monterrey for its 4th installment, following their Norte Sonoro production in Tijuana. Always propitious, the utmost indie/hipster-esque of Mexican events announces a clusterfuck of a lineup to take place on March 6-10, 2013. Not only do they almost quadruple the artist lineup (70 bands!), and add four open air stages, but they extend it for four days as opposed to last year’s one-day event. This is a huge leap up for them and puts them on the platform alongside the nation’s capital’s monster fests. Shall we start drawing comparisons with Vive Latino now? The growth is due thanks to the folks behind NRMAL, as well as NY’s producer Todd P who joined the team last year, and work their curation magic in a very D.I.Y. fashion selecting some of the best indie bands from both sides of the border (many from Brooklyn too. Woot!), and all over Latin America. Big up to performing bands Protistas, Javier Estrada, María y José, Matilda Manzana, Algodón Egipcio, DIIV, Twin ShadowSantos, Banda de Turistas, Las Robertas, and the rest! Ay los watchamos.
