It looks like Latin music will continue to take center stage in 2019, judging from the lineup for this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which was unveiled on Wednesday. J Balvin, Bad Bunny, Rosalia, Mon Laferte and Tucanes de Tijuana have been confirmed to perform at the festival, in what may be an unprecedented roster of major Latin acts at the event. Also announced to perform are alternative artists Javiera Mena, Tomasa del Real and Ocho Ojos.
The Latin lineup covers the diversity of Latin music, going from regional Mexican to flamenco, alternative and urban, confirming the global growth of music in Spanish. And the way the artists are spread out -- with a major Latin act performing every day -- underscores a different view of Latin music compared to the 2018 edition of the festival.
