With a sold-out crowd of about 15,000 people, the inaugural Tropicalia Music and Taco Festival brought a wide lineup of music and more to the Queen Mary in Long Beach on Saturday, Nov. 11.

Headlined by norteño stars Los Tigres Del Norte, with L.A. outfit Chicano Batman and Colombian pop singer Kali Uchis also high on the bill, the young crowd was there to see more than 50 bands on four stages, including reggaeton, ’60s soul, cumbia, norteño, punk and alternative rock acts.
