L.A.-based band, Chicano Batman returns to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA this year, along with some other Latin music acts worth checking out. Coachella’s annual festival attracts crowds from all over the world, and while Radiohead, Beyoncé, and Kendrick Lamar are headlining the festivities this year, we’re excited to see Latin music artists continue to make the lineup.
In the past, Coachella has hosted Café Tacvba, Calle 13, 3BallMTY, Manu Chao, and Caifanes to name a few. This year, Chicano Batman, whose album Freedom is Free drops March 3rd, along with Mexican punk band Los Blenders, Venezuelan folk singer Devendra Banhart, Bronx DJ’s The Martinez Brothers, Spanish female band Hinds, and Chilean artist Nicolas Jaar will be bringing Latin music and feels to Coachella 2017.
Chicano Batman, who began making psychedelic, indie-funk jams since 2008, will be making their second appearance at Coachella; the band first performed at the festival in 2015 and have been making a name for themselves being named one of the bands to watch in 2017 by KCRW. Check out the group’s site for tour dates and to pre-order Freedom is Free.
The festival will take place April 14-16 and April 21-23, you can attempt to get tickets here.
