The Importance of Latin Presence in Music Festivals

#sxsw #latinfests

Programmers for those festivals are continuously outbidding one another to confirm an artist, while in the US, festival programmers are simply opening a slot or two to include an ethnic artist, often at the lowest fee for an act. What is the vision for the future of these festivals, and where do the artists fit in?
