“Like so many other festivals, Tropicália responded to today’s music listeners by being inclusive of a wide range of artists and sounds. But the difference this time was in a clear rejection of the kinds of acts that have come to define mainstream American music, replacing them instead with both new and nostalgic artists well-known within SoCal’s diverse Latin-American communities. The result is a game-changer on par with Afropunk. Tropicália's organizers understood this opportunity and sold an entire day of music and food based upon the full spectrum of second generation Latinx identity in the United States.” - LA Weekly
“There have long been scores of Latin-focused music festivals and cutting-edge club nights in L.A… But this was one of the first festivals to fully acknowledge all sides of that identity, and that includes booking acts that have little to do with Latin music but that still have had an effect on its culture.” - LA Times Full
