New York Salsa Festival Tickets
New York Salsa Festival TicketsOn June 8, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., hosted the 35th New York Salsa Festival, a music festival featuring some of the top world music performers of North and Central America. Each year, the festival features a new lineup of musicians. This year's lineup featured Angel Lopez de Son by Four, Eddie Santiago, Fruko y sus Tesos, Grupo Niche, India, Jerry Rivera, José Alberto El Canario, Lalo Rodríguez, Tito Rojas, Victor Manuelle and Willie Colon. The artists on the lineup are subject to change. Promoters are already working on the lineup for the 2020 festival.
Dance the Night AwayThis festival isn't some mild-mannered event where the audience sits still primly listening. The audience dances in the aisles, giving the festival a block party feel even though it is held indoors. The city and concert promoters often combine the dates for the New York Salsa Festival and the annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City, which increases attendance and livens up the party.
