The Los Angeles-based DJ act Boombox Cartel will headline the return of Fiesta Friday, April 14, in the 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach lineup of activities.
Blurring the lines between electronic and hip-hop with Latin influences, internationally recognized Mexican American producer act Boombox Cartel has risen the ranks as an unparalleled force in the world of dance music.
“I’ve always been super passionate about cars and race cars,” said Americo Garcia, the music producer and live DJ also known as Boombox Cartel. “It’s been a part of my life since I was a kid, going to rally races in Mexico and being a mechanic growing up. Living in L.A., I’ve met so many cool people who share the same love for motorsports. Whenever I have a break from touring, I try to catch some Formula 1 races, most recently in Austria and Austin. It’s so special that two of my favorite things will be coming together for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach—music and racing.”
The Boombox Cartel name spread quickly in 2015 after Jack Ü played “B2U” at Hard Fest and shortly after, every major artist was playing it live. Following the success of “B2U” came the hit single “Supernatural” with Quix and Anjulie, and in 2017 Boombox Cartel released his highly anticipated debut EP “Cartel,” featuring innovative tracks “Alamo” and “Jefe.”
The high-energy show will take place at approximately 6:30 p.m. on the plaza in front of the Long Beach Performing Arts Center adjacent to the Long Beach Convention Center and is free to Friday race ticket holders. Space at the plaza is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Friday tickets start at $38 for a general admission ticket that gives access to the show, Lifestyle Expo, all racing events plus unreserved seating in all grandstands. A three-day ticket that includes prime Saturday and Sunday reserved seating in grandstand upper levels costs $175.
