Main Stage Lineup

The 2017 Dia de los Muertos
Main Stage Headliner is
ATERCIOPELADOS!
They will bring their magic to Hollywood Forever Cemetery this Fall and we couldn’t be more excited!
When Aterciopelados hit the scene in 1991, they left Latin America with its mouth open- the band was unafraid to be political and provocative, combined folk with surf rock and other unimaginable elements, and used their outfits as expression parallel to their songs. Andrea Echeverri and Hector Buitrago are Aterciopelados, which became a band to stand up to the mainstream and scream just as loudly. Their sophomore album El Dorado (1995) turned them into the biggest-selling rock band to come out of Colombia. Since then, they’ve captivated audiences all over their world with their every-changing and fearless compositions. They’ve been nominated various times for Grammys and have taken home many Latin Grammys. In 2006 they were recognized by Time Magazine as one of the top global bands (alongside U2 and The Rolling Stones).
