Festival en el Barrio: Get Your Tickets Today!

Posted By on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Joey Burns of Calexico—the local indie-rock collective which is wrapping up a new album over at Wavelab Studios these days—stopped by Arizona Illustrated last night to talk about the upcoming Festival en el Barrio, which is moving this year to the streets of El Presidio Neighborhood, which falls inside the birthplace of Tucson way back when the Spanish first built a fort here.

We named the Festival en el Barrio our Best New Festival last year because it's an amazing afternoon in downtown. Calexico will headline the show, but there's lots more on the bill, including Megafaun, Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta and Grupo Fantasma. You'll be able to dine at the food trucks and your ticket gets you free admission to the Tucson Museum of Art. On top of all that, the festival benefits KXCI, which is one of the best non-profits we can think of in this dusty cowtown.

So get a ticket today, why don't you?
