As first alluded to in our recent interviews with Bonnaroo co-founder Ashley Capps, the Manchester, Tennessee based music festival will look to expand on the success of last year’s Africa! themed tent by bringing a Latin themed tent to this year’s edition.
Curated by Tomas Cookman and Amy Blackman-Romero of Cookman International / Nacional Records, “Latino Alternativo” will bring several of the genre’s Latin acts to the Bonnaroo farms on Saturday, June 12th. Included to take part are Ozomatli (who will also MC the stage), Los Amigo Invisibles, Aterciopelados, the Mexican Institute of Sound, Bomba Estereo, and the Nortec Collective present: Bostich + Fussible. What’s more, DJs from each of the groups will perform between sets “creating a seamless musical experience throughout the day.” Plus, there will be Latin food!
