Every summer, we look forward to the Latin Alternative Music Conference as it’s the only time when our favorite Latin artists from around the world come together right here in New York City. For five days, you’ll get music, panels, showcases, and parties nonstop! We know we may sound like a used-car salesperson trying to get you a good deal, but this truly is one: This year’s extraordinary music lineup features the electronic beats of Mexican Institute of Sound, Spain’s own one-man-band show El Guincho, the cumbia hip-hop masters Ozomatli, and an old favorite that’s still rocking, Mexico’s Jumbo. With all the Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber overkill we’ve been experiencing lately, this change of tune should be much embraced.
