The Levitt Amp Escondido Music Series comes to an end on Saturday, November 3, 2018!
Headlining the final festival for 2018 is Las Cafeteras, who will be performing at 5:30pm with the opener, Dueto Dos Rosas starting everything off at 4pm!
As an added bonus, the 4th Annual Escondido Tamale Festival will be happening adjacent to Levitt Amp Escondido Music Series, so you can head to the Tamale Festival to eat and then head over to the Levitt Amp Music Series to catch a free show!
Las Cafeteras have taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances and have crossed genre and musical borders. They create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message. Their Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes deliver inspiring lyrics that document stories of a community seeking love and justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.
Dueto Dos Rosas is two sisters, Emily and Sheyla Rosas, who fell in love with campirana music and want to bring it back to popularity. They sing every song with heart, and are proud of their roots and indigenous heritage.
The Center was recently awarded the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award to help transform their underused public spaces through the power of free, live music. While the program has been transforming cities across the nation since 2015, Escondido is the first city in California to be granted an award.
The Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series is generously sponsored by Escondido Wine Region, The San Diego Foundation, The San Diego Music Foundation, City Beat, Mother Earth, Nordson Corporation Foundation, Southern Exposure, Visit Escondido, Escondido Downtown Business Association and Museums & Arts Growing Escondido Culture (MAGEC).
This event is free and open to the public in the park, so you may want to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Each “mini-festival” includes food trucks, arts and craft vendors, kids’ activities, and other entertainers in addition to live music. We have a large, free parking lot that you can enter on Escondido Blvd. or Woodward Ave. Additionally, there is some street parking on Broadway at the East end of Grape Day Park. No alcohol, BBQs, or popup tents allowed in the park. All animals must be leashed.
