Following a successful sold-out debut last year, the Bésame Mucho Latin music festival will return to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Saturday, Dec. 2 with a lineup that will bring together generations of artists and fans.

The festival sold out in just 70-minutes in 2022 and again just as swiftly this year. Bésame Mucho celebrates Latino culture with a day filled with diverse styles of music, art installations and authentic cuisine from a number of Southern California vendors. At last year’s event, thousands of fans lined up early to sprint across the stadium parking lot to catch their favorite acts, with sets ranging from 35-50 minutes in length. The shorter set times and number of acts caused a big of a traffic jam as fans attempted to rush from stage to stage, but this year, with a few less acts and some longer set times, things should run a bit more smoothly.

Canadian-raised, but Mexico-born pop singer Kaia Lana is not only gearing up to make her Bésame Mucho debut on the Te Gusta El Pop? (You Like Pop?) stage, but is also looking forward to catching some of her favorite acts. For Lana, there’s a palpable sense of nostalgia and homecoming with this event as she reflects on the joy of connecting with a like-minded community.

“There’s something about this particular festival and lineup that makes me feel like I’m home and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that,” she shared during a video interview ahead of the festival. “Of course, I’m going to give my audience the best performance I can give, this is my first time at Bésame after all, but fans can also expect to see me running from stage to stage just to catch artists. I’m there as a fan, but I’m also studying their production, sounds and the way they move on stage is everything for me. As a musician, I think there’s always some level of looking to your elders to see what else you can do and improve on, especially watching Maná or Los Bukis. This is like me getting a Ph.D., and I think for fans coming, it’s just another way to connect with family and your roots.”

Here’s what you need to know before heading to Bésame Mucho this weekend.
