Austin, Texas, is known for its massive music festivals, like SXSW and Austin City Limits. But alongside these epic, world-renowned events are some hidden gems. One is the Pachanga Latino Music Festival, which just this year featured a stellar lineup of artists we love, including Gaby Moreno, AJ Davila and La Santa Cecilia.

On this episode of Alt.Latino, we hear some music from the festival and meet up with a few of the performers, including the guys from Brown Out Presents: Brown Sabbath, Gaby Moreno, El Gran Silencio, and Julieta Venegas.

If you were in attendance, be sure to let us know what you loved, who could've done better and what you discovered — other than the fact that Austin can get very, very hot in May.

Please be advised that the audio for this podcast contains profanity.
