This past weekend in Long Beach, Calif., there was a concert event called Tropicalia that brought together a range of bands and acts that included everybody from Los Tigres del Norte, Kali Uchis, Cafe Tacuba, Chicano Batman, Celso Pina, Cuco, and many more.
Personally, I missed the event but was able to enjoy the incredible performances via my friends’ Instagram accounts from the comfort of my bed at home. Because we know I wasn’t the only one who missed out on this show, we decided to create a brief round up of our favorite moments from the event.
Also, did you know they were passing out free tacos before 4 p.m. on the day of the event? Wow.
Check out some of the highlights from this legendary concert below.
Legendary Cafe Tacvba reminded us why they’ll never go out of style.
Seriously, one of the best bands of all time.
Ivy Queen gave her fans chills.
Ivy was there to represent for women everywhere.
Chicano Batman continued to ride the wave they’ve been riding.
Have you heard their new album? FIRE.
Did I mention THE DELFONICS also performed?
Wow, bringing me all the way back.
LOS TIGRES DEL NORTE, Y’ALL.
“La Puerte Negra” is my fave, but this song is also definitely up there.
Kali Uchis brought the crowd to all their feels.
Cuco, the hometown hero, definitely did his thing.
