The seventh annual festival takes place May 10 at Fiesta Gardens and includes musical acts such as five-time Latin Grammy Award-winning Latin rock superstar Julieta Venegas, Mexican rock-fusion band El Gran Silencio, 2014 Grammy Award-winning Latin-alternative quartet La Santa Cecilia, and 2013 Latin Grammy Awards’ “Best New Artist” Gaby Moreno.
