10 Best Bets For Ceremonia Festival

SPIN iconSPIN Staff // August 6, 2014

Never mind the rain. This weekend a storm of artists will take over Mexico City for a festival where local flavor seeps into those who are more used to going on the tour circuit. Named after “Ceremony,” one of the last Joy Division songs ever recorded, the 14-hour day of music comes from veteran Mexican bookers who wanted to expand on the typical types of music that makes it into the country. This year, that means having a hip-hop friendly lineup with Tyler the Creator, A$AP Ferg, and Theophilus London at the top of the bill. Dance innovators, Mexican punk-rock favorites, and electronic experimentalists are featured as well. Take a peak at our best bets for Ceremonia and find more info on the festival’s website.
