Univision Communications, the nation’s largest Spanish-language media company, launched the festival in 2012. The daylong concert packs acts across Latin, pop and hip-hop genres and targets the city’s bilingual Latino market.

Last year’s festival included performances from more than a dozen acts, including Wisin & Yandel, Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Paulina Rubio, Gym Class Heroes and Ozomatli.

More acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

General admission tickets, as well as VIP packages, are on sale through Ticketmaster. More information can be found on the festival’s website.
