Missing Pachanga Fest? Earlier this year the Pachanga Latino Music Festival restructured its programming and converted the popular annual spring festival into a concert series at ACL Live.

In August, the series presented Latin legends Los Tigres Del Norte and Buena Vista Social Club alumni Omara Portuondo and Eliades Ochoa. The concerts continue this fall with more must-see September shows.
