Over 30 Musical Acts, including Caifanes,
Los Angeles Azules, Panteón Rococó, Plastilina Mosh, Titán, Los Caligaris, Reyno, Gaby Moreno, 2 minutos, Voodoo Glow Skulls and dozens more performed at the
3-Day latin music, food, and craft festival in Chicago.
The biggest latin festival in the USA returned to Chicago for its fourth year in a row with one of the strongest line-ups yet and featuring some of the hottest up and coming local acts. In addition to the renowned headliners, the 2018 festival showcased Plastilina Mosh, Los Caligaris, Ana Tijoux, Los Mirlos, Kinky, Titán, Reyno, Los Amantes de Lola, Barragoon, Betty Heredia, The Braided Janes, Calixta and Combo Chimbita, among others.
The three day festival, known for bridging musical borders and reaching US Latino + Latin American crowds, boasts a consistently diverse roster of alternative music from Latin America, Spain, and beyond. This year it also hosted it's very own lucha libre stage, for all the Mexican wrestling fans!
Lucha Libre wasn't the only star, since the World Cup was underway there was no shortage of soccer fans including an overwhelming number of Mexican soccer fans (no surprise there it being Chicago and Little Mexico central!)
This year your Kesta Happening crew got the chance to go and enjoyed every minute of it! One of the funnest festivals you can attend this side of the Rio Grande, one of our favorites is Vive Latino, but RuidoFest gives that fest a run for its money in that it's in the US, food and culture is amazing (the tacos and entertainment was top shelf) and the bands are some of the most popular Latin Alternative acts around. What more can you ask for and you don't even need a passport to attend?
RuidoFest never skimps on the acts, previous headliners have included Molotov, Julieta Venegas, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Natalia Lafourcade, Kinky, and Café Tacvba.
Ruidofest took place during the lovely Chicago Summer at Addams-Medill Park in Pilsen, June 22 - 24, 2018. If you missed it, don't miss out again start making arrangements to attend next year and join us for one of the funnest Latin Alternative festivals in the US!
