Although hosted in a Latin city and sporting a Spanish moniker, in recent years the Vive Latino Festival has grown to become a truly multicultural event. Case in point: Next spring’s lineup features one British superstar; an ensemble of California musicians; an Australian psych-rock band; a Canadian duo; and a Mexican pop singer/songwriter, all performing alongside a catchall who’s-who of international acts, the list of which would be interminably long if it weren’t so darn interesting. The original organizers of Vive Latino may have wanted to hone in on the musically authentic and unique aspects of their culture – but it seems you can’t talk about Latin music without broadening the discussion to include its genre-defying influence.

Morrissey, Blur, Silversun Pickups, Tame Impala, Carla Morrison, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and others who owe a debt or two to Latin rhythms, are slated to perform on the Foro Sol stage in Mexico City next March 14-17. Vive Latino’s 2013 event will be its 15th, and a far cry from the 1998 inaugural show, which featured a lineup of almost exclusively Latino acts. If you’re curious about which other musicians have taken part in this global meeting of musical minds, we’ve included last year’s lineup below, as well as a few 2012 video highlights. Most importantly, we’ve gathered a host of discount ticket links – so don’t miss your chance to attend next year’s set of barrier-breaking shows!
