“More than 15,000 people attended each day of [the first] L Festival – The family-themed festival, put together by Universal Music Latin Entertainment… it was far more than simply another festival …Instead of being narrowly themed within a single genre, it was attempting to cover all genres — pop, rock, regional Mexican, urban and even EDM — and also bring food and art to the mix for a complete family experience that evoked the Latin fests of yore, designed as big family events with very moderately priced tickets….boosted by a strong roster of acts, L Festival got off to a strong start.”

LOS ANGELES, CA—December 08, 2016 – Universal Music Latin Entertainment (UMLE) and AEG today announce the return of the largest Latin Music & Cultural festival in the United States with the second edition of L FESTIVAL. Set to take place on March 18-19, 2017, the family-friendly L FESTIVAL will kick-off the 2017 music festival schedule with headlining appearances from superstar artists such as MARCO ANTONIO SOLIS, JUANES, LOS TIGRES DEL NORTE, J BALVIN, BANDA EL RECODO, INTOCABLE, and a very special new/extended JENNI RIVERA hologram performance. L FESTIVAL will mark the first time many of these legendary artists have done full-length sets on the same event bill. Additional performers at L FESTIVAL will include DJ Alex Sensation, La Séptima Banda, Jose Manuel Figueroa, Sebastián Yatra, La Fame, Jesus Mendoza, Cali y Dandee and Cheyo Carrillo.

(Artist lineup subject to change, watch for additional performer announcements coming soon.)

 

Having already attracted concert goers from twenty-four different states in its first edition, L FESTIVAL will continue to grow as a national travel destination for music fans with a move even closer to Los Angeles for even easier access- with the event now set to take place at the all-new The Village at Pico Rivera.  Festival producers and The Village at Pico Rivera are creating a never before seen, new concert area to host L FESTIVAL – with multiple stages, international food vendors, an art exhibit and many more fan experiences. Many of these improvements will serve residents of the area year-round, and L FESTIVAL attendees for years to come as the special event continues to grow.

 

Presented in partnership with the festival’s official beer sponsor CORONA EXTRA, and in association with PANDORA, CHIVAS REGAL and D’USSÉ Cognac, pre-sale tickets for L FESTIVAL are available starting today, December 8th, through Sunday (12/11) – with the general on-sale set to follow Monday, December 12th via www.LFestival.com

 

In anticipation of this unprecedented gathering of Latin music superstars, fans can start preparing for their festival experience now by listening to an updated L Festival Mixtape  – provided by the event’s official digital music partner PANDORA to reflect the 2017 L Festival lineup.

 

“We are thrilled to bring the return of L Festival to Los Angeles. Our goal is to showcase world class full set performances combined with exciting fan experiences during the two day event that is next to none. As we continue to embark on live events, L Festival represents our crown jewel in the Latino space.”

Gustavo Lopez, EVP and GM of Universal Music Latin Entertainment

 

“Goldenvoice is excited to join forces once again with our long standing partner UMLE. We are confident that our expertise in live shows and the festival business will contribute to the festival’s growth. We have an incredible line-up that represents all spectrums of the Latin community and we are committed to giving them an unforgettable experience at L Fest.” – Rebeca Leon, SVP, Latin Talent, Goldenvoice

 

“We are really looking forward to seeing so many members of our community come together for the first major concert festival of 2017. Performing in the Los Angeles area is always a highlight for us, but to be able to finally perform full sets for the first time on the same stage alongside fellow artists like Marco Antonio Solis, that we are blessed to call a good friend, will be very special for us.  We are very excited to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime weekend of music at L Festival that we expect people will remember for a long-time to come” –Los Tigres del Norte
