L.A.’s favorite psychedelic funk rockers Chicano Batman and the fashion designer turned indiepop/electronica Colombian-American songstress Kali Uchis prepare the crowd for a night of dancing with their dreamy grooves and body shaking beats. Norteño music icons Los Tigres del Norte close out Tropicália, whipping the crowd into a frenzy of Norteño dance twists, twirls and caballito kicks.

Tropicália keeps the crowd moving by mixing soul music legends Brenton Wood and The Delfonics with the queen of rockabilly Wanda Jackson, plus reggaeton royalty her highness Ivy Queen and Jhené Aiko R&B songstress.

There will be throwback performances from 90’s RnB star Ginuwine and futuristic sets from the modish lo-fi singer/songwriter/rapper King Krule.
