The highlighted acts…
Panteón Rococó is without a doubt, one of the most important Latin bands, who is celebrating their 22 years of continuously growing and filling stages around the world. Recently, they performed at the Rock al Parque Festival in Colombia collecting praise from both the international press and from the public, who went wild with some of their classics such as La dosis perfecta, Vendedora de caricias, La Rubia y el demonio and Esta noche.
Haragán y Cía has been in the public scene since 1989 and has reflected the reality of the country of Mexico with their Blues, Funk, Reggae, Heavy Metal, Punk, Rock and Roll and Latin Rhythms; becoming recognized in Mexican, American and European levels with great songs like Maria, Él no la mató and No estoy muerto, among others.
Kinky with their music mixing genres such as rock, dance, samba, electronic, funk and techno, as well as incorporating a great influence of Hispanic rhythms, will be premiering their new album Nada Vale Mas que Tu. Some of the most emblematic songs of the regiomontana group include ¿A dónde van los muertos?, Después del after, Para que regreses and Presidente, among others.
Inspector will present their known mixed style of ska, reggae and 60’s rock n roll nostalgia with their own romantic style. They are part of the musical movement called Avanzada Regia, a musical movement from the mid-90’s that was originated in Monterrey and with no doubt one of the most successful bands.
