Festival Season 2021: RUIDOFEST Makes Its Way to Union Park in August

Festival season is approaching and the awesome lineups are starting to come in. With everything going on concerning the pandemic, it’s easy to forget that festival season is a thing. Especially since it’s been pushed further into fall territory than  usual. It’s been a long journey and there is still a long way to go, but I’m hopeful that things will continue to improve and this year’s festival season goes off without a hitch! Remember to adhere to both the city’s and the festival’s COVID guidelines to ensure a safe experience Ruido Fest, which prides itself on focusing on all the diverse styles of Latin music including rock, ska, hip-hop, hardcore, punk, and more being represented, is back! The eclectic festival will head to Union Park on August 20-22, filling up the park with some exciting musicians from around the world. Headliners include greats like Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Panteón Rococó, and Café Tacvba, giving the festival a strong lineup right from the get go! Add to that the rest of the lineup, which includes stellar local acts like Kaina, Rosalba Valdez, The Mini Projects, Evil Empire, Tone Zone Skam, Nahuales Underground, La Armada, and more to be announced! Tickets for the festival are available now! Three-day passes start at $155 for GA and go up to $200 for VIP passes! As with everything else this year, there will be plenty of COVID restrictions for the festival. Entry to the festival grounds for all event attendees, artists and staff MAY include being subject to provision of proof of vaccination, provision of proof of a recent negative test, masking requirements and TBD social distancing measures. If you don’t have a mask and one is required, a complimentary one will be provided for you. To be clear, the exact requirements will be dictated by the current state and city guidelines at the time of the festival.
