Festival NRMAL 2013 Announces Final Lineup, Adds Ariel Pink, Twin Shadow + More
Festival NRMAL is returning to Monterrey, Mexico, for its fourth consecutive year. The event will take place from March 6-10 and feature performances by more than 100 bands, including Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Sky Ferreira and Twin Shadow.
The fest was founded back in 2010 by Todd Patrick, aka Todd P, in order to showcase bands from underground music scenes and bring together a wide variety of cultures.
“Monterrey is Mexico’s closest major city to the United States, yet because of restrictive USA immigration visa policies, many Latin American bands and music fans aren’t able to make it to the U.S. to attend festivals like SXSW,” says Patrick. “Hosting a festival like FESTIVAL NRMAL over the border – in Mexico – has a special urgency to us, especially now.”
Other acts on this year’s lineup are Mykki Blanco, DIIV, Daniel Maloso, Banda de Turistas, Fear of Men, Parquet Courts, Trash Talk, King Tuff, Mueran Humanos, Nguzunguzu, Protistas, Las Robertas, San Pedro el Cortez and the Holydrug Couple. A sampling of the featured bands is available for your listening pleasure via an online mixtape. Click here for ticket info, FAQs and more.
