Erick Rincon, Sergio Zavala (Dj Sheeqo Beat) and Alberto Presenda (Dj Otto) have lined up one of the biggest gigs of their lives…
The members of Mexico’s DJ collective 3Ball MTY, winners of the Best New Artist award at last year’s Latin Grammys, have been added to the lineup for the prestigious Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
It’ll be 3Ball MTY’s first appearance at the music festival after their banner year in 2012 that included winning nine awards at last year’s Billboard Mexican Music Awards and seeing their album Inténtalo named the breakthrough album of the year by iTunes editors.
Rincon, Zavala and Presenda will perform on Saturday, April 13 and Saturday, April 20.
But 3Ball MTY won’t be the only Latin acts performing at Coachella 2013, which will once again take place over two weekends (April 12-14 and 19-21).
Mexican-American singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez, the star of the Oscar-nominated documentary Searching for Sugar Man, will perform at Coachella, as previously reported. Rodriguez, who dropped out of sight after releasing two extraordinary albums in the early 1970s that didn’t sell well stateside, will perform on Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21.
Rising star DJ Danny Avila will make his Coachella debut. The 17-year-old EDM wunderkind, who recently released the remixes for his smash single “Breaking Your Fall,” will take the stage on Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21.
Mexican alternative rock band Café Tacvba, recipient of iTunes’ Best Album honors last year for El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco, will perform on Saturday, April 13 and Saturday, April 20
