Tropicalia is back again this weekend to bring an impressive genre-bending and multi-generational festival to Southern California and we’ll be providing coverage of another amazingly stacked weekend filled with top music acts and award winning tacos.
The festival, which debuted last year, is immaculately crafted to provide a mind blowing music, food and vendor lineup. An carefully curated and individually tailored event fit for a carnivorous cumbia lover, pescatarian alternative rocker or vegan shoegaze enthusiast (and every combination in between).
A complete embrace of the vibrant, effervescent and ever present culture that has reigned supreme in Southern California; both the overarching umbrella and individualistic diversity of the Latinx [Millennial] identity is finally being celebrated.
Join us this weekend via our socials as we cover the event in all its sunshine filled glory. The setlist this year expanded as the event itself turned into a two day eclectic event. The lineup includes top acts like Morrissey, Bronco,Mazzy Star, Mild High Club, Mac De Marco and Natalaia LaFourcade. It also has some returning icons like La Sonora Dinamita, Kali Uchis and Chicano Batman. Bringing the best of the new, smaller rising acts like Surf Curse, The Marias,Triathalon, Frankie Cosmos, Tropa Magica and Jurrassic Shark join the bill. Were also excited to see that most of our rising acts list from last year have made all made their ways back onto the list this year too. While highly awaited Cardi B and Cuco had to pull out of the festival the day before due to unforeseen circumstances; but the organizers have added SZA and Brenton Woods to fill the slots.
As stated last year, Tropicalia is much more than a music festival; but a declaration that Latinx people, culture and musical palettes are never stagnant, always changing and forever ranging. Tropicalia manifests a space where diversity is celebrated alongside national identity.
