In 2015, Chicago’s Ruido Fest made its debut as one of the most buzzed about Latino music festivals of the year. Now, the three-day affair has announced the lineup for its second annual gathering, and it’s even more jam-packed than before.
Headlining acts include Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, La Ley, Carla Morrison, Panteón Rococó, and La Maldita Vecindad. Also slated to appear at the three-stage fest are Natalia Lafourcade, Miranda!, Le Butcherettes, Helado Negro, Las Robertas, Los Blenders, Sexy Zebras, the recently reunited Hong Kong Blood Opera, and a returning Silverio, who stole the show last year. There are still many other artists to be confirmed.
This year, Ruido Fest is looking to forge stronger ties with the local Latino community, in order to help raise awareness surrounding immigration reform, voting rights, and affordable housing, in addition to showcasing local artists. The organizers are very keen on leaving a positive impact and making Ruido Fest part of the community on a day-to-day basis. Chicagoans have already shown their loyalty, since early bird tickets are already sold out.
Ruido Fest will take place on July 8, 9, and 10 in Chicago. General admission tickets go on sale on Friday, March 18 at 10 a.m. CST. Check out the poster below:
