Coachella is entering it’s last weekend and there have already been some major Latino moments. This truly is the time of the Latinos in entertainment and we are so here for it. Here are just a handful of the Latino stars dominating their performances in the desert.
1. Cardi B
Cardi B has had one of the greatest years on record. She has dominated the charts when it comes to her singles and album and her dominance spilled over to her Coachella performance. The pregnant rapper twerked on stage and left the crowd both shook and crazing more.

Kehlani is one of the fastest growing names in the business right now and is outspoken about things that matter to her. That being said, it should not have been a surprise that the woman who joined Cardi B for a song on her album would make a surprise appearance at one of the biggest music festival in the country. Oh, she also rocked the hell out of her performance.

The French Afro-Cuban twins are no strangers to the Coachella experience, or Beyoncé after appearing on “Lemonade.” They totally owned the stage when they performed in 2016 and it was a performance to remember. This year was no different as they left the audience breathless after their set.
Miguel has gone through a metamorphosis with his look and sound recently. Gone are the days of super smooth and suave Miguel of “Adorn.” Instead we are now blessed to watch him give us party songs like “Sky Walker” and we couldn’t be happier.

They were not shy about bringing their style of Mexican punk to the Sonora stage at Coachella. Who wouldn’t get into the sounds of “Verde Pastel” blowing in the desert breeze?
6. The Marias
The Marias are thriving during their first tour and part of the tour took them through Indio Valley to Coachella. The Instagram posts around and during the festival are so grateful that it is adorable.
7. Los Ángeles Azules

This band is a perfect choice by the Coachella coordinators. Los Ángeles Azules are guaranteed to attract all kinds of listeners from young people to their parents and grandparents. Talk about an all ages show.
Cuco has been a major name in the underground music scene in Los Angeles for quite some time now. It’s about time his talents get recognized and shared with a much larger and probably not ready audience.
9. Helado Negro
What better place to share your new music than at Coachella? Helado Negro was definitely on this tip and there is no question that his appearance at the festival will only add to his sales to come. ¡Bien hecho!
