San Diego, CA — (PRNewswire) — After 2021’s sold-out festival in Ventura, Tequila & Taco Music Festival has announced that it will bring not one, but two, full weekends to Southern California this year. The popular event returns to San Diego at its new location at Gallagher Square at Petco Park on April 30-May 1 and to Surfer’s Point LIVE at the Ventura County Fairgrounds on July 9-10. Festivalgoers in both cities will be able to enjoy curated samples of tequila and tacos along with a full schedule of live music each day.
On Saturday, April 30, ’90s pop icon and rapper Vanilla Ice brings his hits to Petco Park with his distinctive mix of old-school hip hop, rock, and catchy dance beats. Cumbria groundbreakers, La Sonora Dinamita will open the day with a smooth blend of groovy tropical vibes, with more Saturday lineup announcements to come.
The party continues Sunday with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – one of the greatest hip-hop acts of all time – performing an unforgettable set of hits and jams. Also on Sunday, Spanish-language rock outfit Adelaide will start things off with an electrifying performance including a rollicking tribute to Selena, setting the stage for Metalachi -the world’s first and only Heavy Metal Mariachi band – to turn up the heat.
Both Saturday and Sunday will be packed with premium tequila tastings, delicious street taco vendors, award-winning margaritas, a stellar lineup of live music, and local craft vendors.
There are three levels of tickets available: The Tequila Experience which includes festival entry and top-shelf tequila sampling; the Margarita Experience – a pair of tickets that includes festival entry, two margaritas, and two souvenir glasses; and General Admission tickets which include festival entry. All tickets provide full access to food and beverage vendors and live entertainment. Tickets and information are available at TequilaAndTacoMusicFestival.com.
