Festival Cubano Director and Founder George Herrera kicked off the sixth annual Latin music festival Tuesday morning during a press conference at 90 Miles Café. “After last year’s successful celebration of our fifth anniversary, we found ourselves in the challenging position of figuring out how to top last year’s brilliant performances by headliners El Gran Combo, PALO!, and Rey Ruiz. I strongly believe this sixth edition is shaping up to be one of our best yet,” said Festival Cubano Director and Founder George Herrera. EventSource, producers of the Festival Cubano announced the lineup which includes singer/songwriter Luis Enrique, Pedrito Calvo, and salsa vocalist Brenda K. Starr. In what is quickly becoming the largest festival, Festival Cubano is presented by Corona, McDonalds, and 30th Ward Alderman Ariel R. Reboyras. Festival Cubano will be held Friday, Aug. 14th to Sunday, Aug. 16th at Riis Park. For more information, visit www.THECUBANFESTIVAL.com.
