Julieta Venegas, Cultura Profética and Molotov are among Chicago’s 2017 Ruido Fest lineup, which Billboard can reveal exclusively.
Adding a norteño twist to the alt-rock set of performers is legendary band Intocable, who will perform alongside Alejandro Marcovich, former Caifanes guitarist.
Other bands set to perform include Bomba Estéreo, Fobia, Duncan Dhu, Titan, Mon Laferte, Lucybell, Los Amigos Invisibles, A Band of Bitches, Javiera Mena, Alex Anwandter, Adan Jodorowsky and Buscabulla. More artists will be announced in the upcoming months.
The third annual Ruido Fest is set to take place July 7-9 at Addams/Medill Park with tickets for the three-day fest on sale now.
“We are very appreciative of the support of the local and international community that have supported,” Ruido Fest founder Max Wagner said in a statement.
“We always are looking to reward the faith that the fans show in us by striving to bring in the best talent, and provide opportunities for artists that don’t receive a lot of chances to perform in this country. Our goal this year, and every year, is to provide the best experience and best value possible for our loyal fans.”
Last year’s performers included Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Panteon Rococó, Carla Morrison, Natalia Lafourcade, Aterciopelados and Maldita Vecindad.
