We’re less than a month away from the first edition of Festival Nrmal Costa Rica, and now we got what we all waited for: the lineup. For the announcement, Nrmal and Epicentro gathered a bunch of bands: Nrmal alumni Las Robertas, Monte, and Ave Negra, as well as All My Friends participants 424 and special guests Shiro Schwarz. All of them played live for a webcast and announced some of the names to those tuning in online.
The lineup features Gepe (Chile) and The Sonics (U.S.) as headliners, as well as a bunch of electronic producers: Raido (CR), Helado Negro (ECU/US), Algodón Egipcio (VEN), AAAA (MX), and Buscabulla (PR/U.S.). Costa Rican bands like Hijos will also be part of the mix.
Noise will be provided by award-winning composer Sergio Fuentes and his Wiesengrund Project and fellow Costa Ricans aUTOPerro, a legendary group in the local noise circuit.
Festival Nrmal in Costa Rica will be the perfect end to a week full of activities for Latin indie. Starting November 18, the Epicentro Latin Indie Summit will host a series of conferences and gatherings with music industry peeps, press, and labels from all over Latin America.
