Along with performances by ultra-hip alt-Latino, electronica, lo-fi, Regional Mexican, 90’s hip-hop, 70’s soul and 50’s rockabilly musicians, the inaugural Tropicália Festival will have free all you can eat tacos until 4 pm. The festival is set to take over the Queen Mary in Long Beach on November 11th.
In honor of the cultural revolution that took place in Brazil starting in the 1960s, Tropicalia was a response to military dictatorship and a counter-cultural statement. After ending in 1972, most associated the radical movement exclusively with music.
Headliners include L.A.’s favorite psychedelic funk rockers Chicano Batman, fashion designer turned indie-pop/electronica Columbian songstress Kali Uchis, and Norteño music icons Los Tigres del Norte closing out the festival. The inclusivity of genres within this year’s line up ensures that there is something for everyone.
The family-friendly event will include performances by Alina Baraz, Buyepongo, Cuco, The Delfonics, Ginuwine, GoldLink, Wanda Jackson, King Krule, Madlib, Os Mutantes, Thee Commons, Sango, La Sonora Dinamita, Surf Curse, Brenton Wood, and much more.
Hosted by comedian Felipe Esparza, Tropicália’s debut is sure to be pure fire.
