Day One: 15,000+ Fans Attend The First Day Of The First Ever L Festival – Feria Cultural Latinoamericana At The Oc Fair & Event Center


Day one of UMLE’s L FESTIVAL – FERIA CULTURAL LATINOAMERICANA  was a huge success as 15,000 families and fans of great Latin music, food and art poured onto the grounds of the OC Fair and Event Center  for Day One of the two-day festival.  Enrique Iglesias, David Bisbal, Los Angeles Azules, Julion Alvarez, Jesus Mendoza and others had the thousands of fans screaming for more.  The L Dance Hangar stage for electronic acts was packed as artists crowd surfed over the audience. Day two is expected to draw 20,000 attendees.

Art exhibits, carnival rides, great food and Latin music’s biggest stars made for a first ever, value-packed experience for the attendees.  Over the course of two days,  32 of Latin music’s biggest stars including international star Enrique Iglesias, Juan Gabriel, La Arrolladora Banda el Limon, Gloria Trevi,  Julion Alvarez, David Bisbal and others perform four different stages to give fans one of the best concert experiences Southern California has ever seen.             The L Dance Hangar, the stage for UMLE’s Aftercluv electronic dance label, was packed as performers such as Eyes of Providence, Atellagali, Arty and Far East Movement, who crowd surfed over the audience.

With a projected buying power of $1.5 trillion by the end of this year, the US Hispanic population has a powerful voice in the culture.  It’s no surprise that some of America’s top brands signed on to partner for the event including Bud Light, Pepsi, Verizon, Jose Cuervo, Citi National Bank, Aeromexico  Contigo, State Farm, Toyota, Tadin, D’Usse, Mundo Max and Tidal.

UMLE and concert leader CMN Events crafted the historical first L Festival celebrating the wide diversity of Latin culture in the US with interactive music, art, history, and cultural experiences for the entire family. UMLE commissioned 20+ top Southern California chefs, food trucks and restaurateurs for cuisine and the acclaimed Avenue 50 Studio for art to create extraordinary culinary and creative experiences for the entire family.
