FESTIVAL, PEOPLE EN ESPAŃOL, Presented by Target, expands the talent line-up for day and night events at the two-day celebration of Hispanic entertainment, culture and community. Mexican superstar, actress and singer Maite Perroni will kick off the promo tour for her first solo album with a performance at the Alamodome on Saturday, Aug. 31. Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo, Noel Torres, Carla Teresa Mauri, Lucía Navarro and Sebastien De La Cruz join an all-star lineup of day and nighttime talent at Festival. Previously announced acts performing at the Alamodome include Gloria Estefan, Alejandro Fernandez, Demi Lovato, Wisin y Yandel, 3 Ball MTY, Frankie J, Kat Dahlia, and more. Set for Labor Day weekend (Saturday, Aug. 31 and Sunday, Sept. 1) in San Antonio, FESTIVAL PEOPLE EN ESPAÑOL, presented by Target, offers free open-to-the-public daytime activities at The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, and a mix of live performances each evening at the Alamodome.
Produced by the legendary, 19-time Grammy Award-winning, musician and producer, Emilio Estefan, the heavyweight performances at the Alamodome are bolstered by an equally impressive celebrity roster at free and open-to-the-public daytime activities at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. For example, Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo, one of Univision Radio’s most popular radio personalities, whose “Piolín por la Mañana” is syndicated across the United States in more than 53 markets will host Festival’s Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza on Saturday August 31. The Mariachi Extravaganza is the largest group and vocal camp in the nation.
