2017 Main Stage


Headlining: Buyepongo

The name Buyepongo means “to cause a ruckus” –which certainly describes the scene on the dance floors of Los Angeles whenever the band launches into its dizzyingly energetic, instantly infectious Tropicales-style rhythms. Their mash-up of influences, which include hip-hop, punk, funk, and jazz create a delirious musical blend from across the Latin American diaspora.

The band has shared stages with Ozomatli, Booker T, Quantic and more and performed on countless LA stages, including Grand Park, Levitt Pavillion’s Summer Music Series, Hollywood Forever's Dia De Los Muertos, the Skirball Cultural Center's Family Amphitheater Performances, and LACMA.

Recently, Buyepongo was featured on "Artbound Presents Studio A,” KCET’s showcase for Southern California's top musical talent that reflect the cultural and musical diversity of the region. Listen here.
