Chile's annual La Cumbre del Rock Chileno music festival announced its lineup for this year's show, set to take place Jan. 7 at Estadio Nacional. 

Headliners include some of Chile's most renowned artists including Los Tres, Javiera Mena, Francisca Valenzuela, Latin Grammy-nominated artist Alex Anwandter, Manuel García and Lucybell. 

This edition will include a special tribute performance for singer/songwriter Violeta Parra, considered one of Chile's most influential artists, in what would have been her centennial birthday.  

Three of Chile's promising up-and-comers, Mena, Valenzuela and Marineros performed in Los Angeles last week during Red Bull Sound Select's "30 Days in L.A." music series.

"It's very special to have a night not only dedicated to Latin America but to Chilean women -- which is a very specific, far-away small country," Valenzuela told Billboard. "There's a great music scene happening in our country."
