DAMAS Y CABALLEROS! We are proud to announce the return of #NUEVOFEST! A free, all-ages, outdoor concert showcasing artists who represent the new sounds of Latin America can be experienced on Sunday, July 16 when the WXPN Latin Roots Live! concert series presents NUEVOFEST 2017, featuring performances by eight outstanding Latin alternative artists, starting at 2 P.M. at @FringeArts in Philadelphia (doors open at 1 P.M.). NUEVOFEST is free and open to the public via advance RSVP at www.latinroots.org. This year, we are thrilled to announce that one of the incredible 8 acts is none other than #Venezuela's Grammy-winning dance/punk/alternative band, @lavidaboheme!

Now in its fifth year, NUEVOFEST is part of the WXPN Latin Roots Live! series of free concerts inspired by Latin Roots, the bi-weekly series heard on NPR’s World Cafe radio program (produced by Philadelphia public radio station WXPN) that explores and exposes the vast variety of music from Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries. NUEVOFEST and the Latin Roots Live! free concert series are produced and presented by WXPN 88.5 FM in partnership with AfroTaino Productions, and made possible by the William Penn Foundation.
