Long Beach, Calif. — Los Angeles-based DJ act Boombox Cartel will headline the return of Fiesta Friday to the 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach lineup of activities.
Presented by Acura, 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-serve basis.
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.
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 smash single “Supernatural” with Quix and Anjulie, and in 2017 Boombox Cartel released his highly anticipated debut EP “Cartel,” featuring innovative tracks “Alamo” and “Jefe.”
In 2019, Boombox Cartel embarked on his biggest headline tour: The Cell Tour. It featured a full stage production, synchronized visuals and sold-out dates all across the US and has also secured prime slots at major festivals including Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas and many more. With collaborations and features ranging from Dillon Francis, DMX, MadeInTYO, NGHMTRE, Panama and more, Boombox Cartel has also been featured in prominent media outlets like Billboard, Noisey, Complex, and DJ MAG.
“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. They’ve given me the chance to race and hit up tracks and events all over the world, and I recently got my own Birel Kart a few months back that I’ve been enjoying at The Thermal Club. 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!”
