The is the second edition of ACA World Sound, following a November 2000 show that featured the likes of Moby, Deep Dish, and Banco De Gaia. This year’s show will expand upon the format, with the first two days hosting music on five stages on the beach near Barra Vieja. The third night will see the festival move into the city of Acapulco, with after parties at the Palladium and Enigma clubs.
As in 2000, ACA World Sound will raise funds for the Million Wishes Latin America Charity Fund.
