Brand-new Latinx festival brings music y mas to Austin this summer
A new festival highlighting Latinx artists is bringing music, DJs, and more to Austin this summer. Billed as "a touring mini-festival experience," ¡Eso Es! will embark on four-day tour across Texas over Labor Day weekend.
In a release, organizers mapped out the inaugural ¡Eso Es! route, which launches at Houston's White Oak Music Hall on August 29, followed by Dallas' Canton Hall on August 30, and Austin's Mohawk on August 31, before ending at San Antonio's Paper Tiger September 1.
Each city will feature the same five-band lineup: Neon Indian, Empress Of, La Goony Chonga, Bidi Bidi Banda (A Tribute To Selena), and Luna Luna.
"The acts represent a mix of Latinx artists making waves both regionally and nationally, and the lineup spans genres," Margin Walker Presents said in a release. The Lone Star State will be well represented, with Texas acts Luna Luna and Bidi Bidi Banda in the rotation.
In addition to the marquee bands, each city will also feature local DJs and vendors. Peligrósa will take the stage in Austin, Bombón DJs will join the bill in Houston, and Faded DeeJays will perform in Dallas. In San Antonio, XANAXFANCLUB and LZRCAT will perform co-DJ duties.
Tickets for ¡Eso Es! are on sale now and are priced at $29.40 for general admission, or $35 at the door.
