[3/14 – 3/15] Preview: Pan Americana Fest 2014

Pan Am Fest Mar 14.15 On Friday, March 14, the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center (ESB-MACC) and Bellas Artes Alliance will present the fourth annual Pan Americana Fest. The free two-day event will feature some of the world’s best Latin Alternative along with local and regional acts for all to see during South by Southwest (SXSW). With a stacked lineup from top to bottom, there is more than enough talent to keep the party going from start to finish. The best part? It is absolutely free to the public.

Friday’s big name headliners include Mexican electronic duo Bostich + Fussible from Nortec Collective and Monterrey tribal sensations, 3Ball MTY. Texas will be well represented as San Antonio punkeros Piñata Protest and Corpus Christi’s Master Blaster Sound System co-headline before the Mexican faves. DJ Dus, a member of Master Blaster Sound System and Peligrosa, will step out and perform as El Dusty on both nights.

On Saturday, Mar. 15, the fest continues on with Venezuelan disco-funkeros, Los Amigos Invisibles. Their Nacional Records label mate Mexican Institute of Sound (M.I.S.) and Panabaynian hip-hop duo Los Rakas co-headline. Mexican rockera Poc opens the event on both nights.

The ESB-MACC is located at 600 River Street. All ages are welcome. No badge or RSVP required. The Pan Americana Fest will last from 5-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Visit the SXSW website here for set times.
