Get ready to spice up your festival calendar. Napa's rolling out the Latin beats carpet with the newfangled La Onda Latin music festival, as announced by the producers of the celebrated BottleRock Napa Valley. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, next June will see downtown Napa pulsate with the rhythms of regional Mexican, Latin pop, and other caliente genres for a two-day extravaganza set to make waves at the Napa Valley Expo.
The party planners behind BottleRock are throwing in everything, including the musical kitchen sink, featuring an extensive lineup that brings forth reggaetón to banda, mariachi to rap, even cumbia and bolero. With the full lineup set to drop this coming Monday, the Napa Valley Expo venue will barely have caught its breath from the BottleRock festivities when it swings back into action for La Onda, happening just a week later, leveraging the same infrastructure but cranking up that Latin sizzle.
According to the festival's own website, La Onda ticks all the boxes with major Latin touring artists, DJ sets, shaded lounges, local Latin cuisine, and more—talk about a fiesta. Want the full VIP treatment? La Onda's got you covered with multiple ticket tiers from GA to El Mirador and Diamante levels, all promising an amplified festival experience, but don't drag your feet, as presale kicks off on December 6th at 10 a.m. PT.
The music's just the appetizer, though, because attendees can also get their spa groove on, work it at the dance club, or jam out sans the noise complaints at the silent disco. And when it's time to re-energize, juicy local and regional Latin cuisine along with specialty beverages will be up for grabs, keeping that festival stamina rocketing all weekend long. So mark those calendars and prep for a sumptuous sonic spread that promises to be the "largest Latin festival in Northern California." Fiesta, siesta, repeat—June in Napa's just heated up.
