The Tropicalia Music And Taco Festival Is Back In California And The Lineup Is Better Than Ever

If you’re inclined to think that music festivals are too white — you’re not alone. In fact, it’s really hard to see performers of color headline big shows (because Beyoncé can’t do them all). Thankfully the Tropicália Music & Taco Festival in Long Beach, California is here to save us. The music festival will feature some of the hottest Latino musicians for two days of amazing music and food.

Morrissey and Cardi B will headline the Tropicália Music & Taco Festival at the Queen Mary Park and people are screaming.

They might be two completely different artists, but fans for the two headliners are energized and ready. After all, these two performers know how to get the crowd going.

But there are so many other Latinx musicians and groups rocking the Tropicália stage, like Chicano Batman.

The psychedelic band is returning after a successful set at the 2017 Tropicália festival. Plus, they are California boys so showing up for their community only makes sense.

Kali Uchis won’t be a stranger with her return to Tropicália.

The festival is happening November 3 and 4 at the Queen Mary Park. Let’s hope the California weather doesn’t stay too hot then.

Los Ángeles Azules is bring Long Beach their cumbias straight from Mexico.

They will definitely get the crowd dancing in the fall night along the water.

Our favorite sweet songstress Natalia Lafourcade will grace the festival’s stage.

Amigos de Monterrey, está tarde fui muy feliz. Llegue al escenario de este festival que tanto me gusta @palnorteoficial. Tengo tantas razones por las cuales agradecer este día. Simplemente no podía comenzar a cantar por la emoción que sentía adentro de mi pequeño cuerpo tan sólo de estar parada frente a todos ustedes. Primero, gracias por llegar a ese lugar donde todos juntitos cuerpo a cuerpo escuchan y se permiten vivir la intensidad y magia de la música. Gracias por abrazar a mi corazón de vuelta con cariño y complicidad. Gracias porque nos conocemos hace muchos años y cada vez este árbol crece más fuerte y con más conexiónes. Gracias a todo el equipo del festival por apoyar nuestros mundos y universos musicales. México tiene mucho talento y en estos contextos se deja notar. ¿Y qué tal el atardecer que nos acompañó? Fue perfecto y fue maravilloso. Gracias viento, gracias cielo, gracias sol, gracias vida, gracias Violeta Parra por venir a este escenario y acompañarme para cantar tu canción. Gracias a nuestras historias de vida que se entrelazan con cada letra y frase que vive entre melodías y acordes. Todos hemos vivido cosas similares. Gracias al movimiento y la energía entre ritmo, espacio y silencio. Gracias a mi banda que tanto amo y admiro. Gracias a @carolinakuniverse que me regalaron esta belleza de vestido azul con flores rojas a la mexicana, gracias @galaislove que hacen tan hermosos accesorios, mismos que también me acompañaron. Gracias a mis managers que antes de entrar al escenario me ven con ojos lagrimosos, encendidos, ilusionados y llenos de luz. Los amo familia. Gracias a todos. Gracias a la vida. Gracias a los sueños que nunca dejan de visitarnos y siempre hay un nuevo horizonte para explorar. 8 aviones en diez días. Estoy agotada pero sí que vale la pena. Los amo. ❤️🙏🏻❤️🌹 Ya estamos en la intensidad de cierre de ciclo y para mi ésto significa mucho. Cada segundo se disfruta al máximo. Nos seguiremos viendo. ❤️💙
