Since it’s inception in 2016, Mala Luna Music Festival has brought the city of San Antonio some of the biggest names in music and has also set the stage for new names and faces to the industry. In celebration of it’s third year, the SCOREMORE produced festival will include Latin superstars Nicky Jam, Becky G, and international favorite Cardi B. Scoremore co-founder Sascha Stone expressed the importance of including Latin artists to the mostly hip-hop lineup in an Instagram post where he wrote:
“Mala Luna 2018 is a celebration of culture. Excited to incorporate Spanish speakers to the lineup alongside some of our favorite hip hop and DJ’s. Not familiar with someone? Take a leap of faith with us. We will not tolerate the oppression of Spanish Speakers. We will empower them together. We are a blend… We’re looking forward to seeing you all soon.”
In just a short time, Mala Luna has once again proved that the event is truly unique across the festival landscape in not only featuring high-profile music performances, multiple live art installations, and numerous local food vendors and merchants, but also highly curated themes and designs, costumes and more – all of which help pay tribute to the local culture and the San Antonio community’s annual Diá de los Muertos and Halloween celebrations.
The festival celebrated its sophomore year last October at a new home in Nelson Wolff Stadium (Parking Lot), which resulted in a sold-out two-day event with 50,000 fans in attendance throughout the weekend, nearly doubling the overall attendance from the inaugural event in 2016. The event continues to play host to a variety of renowned talent with previous music performers having included Future, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Migos, G-Eazy, Tory Lanez, Lil Uzi Vert, Rae Sremmurd, and Lil Yachty, as well as Kaskade, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Carnage, Borgore, and others.
