La Linea

“La Linea has spent years building an impressive international reputation as one of the world’s most eclectic celebrations of Latin music. ” Time Out 

La Linea 18, The London Latin Music Festival, runs from April 20 – 30 2018.

A heady mix of debut commissions, one-off UK performances, and live premieres from global superstars and rising stars across the Latin music world. The festival works with a range of London venues and boasts a stand-out line-up that features everything from traditional Cuban music, Latin rumba, ska and punk from Spain, Chilean classics, genre-spanning sounds from Mexico, and future Iranian/Afro-Cuban inspired electronica.

La Linea gratefully acknowledges support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
