This lineup is full with different genres including cumbia from Sonora Dinamita, a mixture of 50's rock sound from The Buttertones and even reggaeton from Ivy Queen. L.A.'s favorite psychedelic funk rockers Chicano Batman and the fashion designer turned indiepop/electronica Columbian-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.

The often mentioned eclectic line-up ensures that there is an artist or group representing any given dance genre. Tropicália keeps the crowd moving by mixing soul music legends Brenton Wood and The Delfonics with the queen of rockabilly Wanda Jackson.

There will be throwback performances from 90's RnB star Ginuwine and futuristic sets from the modish lo-fi singer/songwriter/rapper King Krule. Of course representing Los Angeles sweethearts Very Be Careful, Las Cafeteras, Buyepongo, La Banda Skalavera, Thee Commons, Cuco plus plenty of DJ sets & ambiance.
