4 Days to Ruido Fest 2018:
Why you canâ€™t miss it!
If like us youâ€™re counting down the days to Ruido Fest,
you know that weâ€™re just 4 days away until the
Ã• epic three-day fest officially kicks off.
Now in its fourth year, the Ruido roster promises to bring together some of Latin Americaâ€™s most iconic bands, like Caifanes and Los Ãngeles Azules, and eclectic up-and-comers.
While also showcasing girl power with badass female artists like Ana Tijoux and Gaby Moreno.
We can go on and on with reasons why you canâ€™t miss out this year
but here are five things weâ€™re looking forward to at this yearâ€™s Ruido Fest,
which are sure to give you FOMO:
Cu cu cumbia:
After a successful run at Coachella, Los Ãngeles Azules will make their Ruido Fest debut and itâ€™s safe to say that they are among this yearâ€™s highly anticipated performers. Leading the cumbia movement at Ruido, Los Ãngeles Azules will be joined by other cumbia power houses like crowd-favorite Celso PiÃ±a and up-and-comers Combo Chimbita from New York and Chicagoâ€™s very own Quinto Imperio.
If youâ€™re looking for some girl power at Ruido Fest, weâ€™ve got you covered. French-Chilean hip-hop artist Ana Tijoux and Guatemalan blues-folk singer Gaby Moreno are two stand-out mujeres that will take the Ruido Fest stage. Other fine-print female performers worth checking out are female-led bands Playa GÃ³tica and The Braided Janes, as well as DJâ€™s Calixta, DJ Chava, La Spacer, Betty Heredia, Cqqchifruit and Kinky P.
This year, Ruido Fest will support and spotlight Chicago music artists on the rise and give exposure to the Windy Cityâ€™s diverse music scene. In fact, one of this yearâ€™s local performers was chosen by fans after the bands battled it out for a spot on the sacred Ruido Fest stage. The contest winners, Quinto Imperio from Back of the Yards, will join Chi-Townâ€™s bevy of talent including Divino NiÃ±o, The Braided Janes, Barragoon, Ron Solera, Bumbac Joe and Enrique Tobias, among others. And of course, the must-see DJâ€™s already mentioned in the GRL PWR section.
Cue the nostalgia and get ready to sing your heart out with Caifanes on Sunday, June 24. It took the band four years to finally perform at Ruido Fest but itâ€™ll be worth the wait. Caifanes will celebrate three decades of rock en espaÃ±ol for their Ruido Fest debut. The bandâ€™s set, which is sure to include oldies but goodies, will wrap up the three-day fest with a bang.
the best from the Midwest:
Ruido Fest continues to cater to rock-loving festival goers by staying true to their Latin alternative/rock festival roots and including headliners like PanteÃ³n RococÃ³ and Caifanes. While the Midwest seems to still be an underserved area when it comes to showcasing alt/rock Latin acts, Ruido Fest fills that music void. And in solidarity with the Latinx/immigrant community, Ruido Fest also challenges an anti-immigrant sentiment thriving across the nation. This is when we have to make some ruido.
Bottom line is that Ruido Fest 2018 wonâ€™t disappoint.
Weâ€™ll see you in 4 days!
