Time to head for the hills! Well, the Wisconsin hills, that is—-this weekend, the second edition of Los Dells takes off with the wildly diverse format that is becoming this midwestern Latino-palooza’s trademark.
After taking note of last year’s feedback, the food offerings will be expanded and include all local restaurants, so the eats sound wonderful, too. (Plus, cheese curds).
The Latinx identity is as varied as it is complex, and Los Dells Festival recognizes that in the choices for the lineup. Here’s some of the sonic landscapes to which you will be transported amidst the beautiful Wisconsin landscape–just a taste, as more than thirty acts that will will be performing one weekend.
