The 18th annual Hialeah Fest is happening at everyone’s favorite local venue, Churchill’s Pub in Miami.  Great local bands have been included in the lineup and now you’ll know!  The festival, organized by our friends, Ferny Coipel and Tony Landa (Humbert), will take place at Churchill’s Pub on Friday October 18th and Saturday October 19th. Proceeds from this event will benefit Manos Internacional, an organization founded by Hialeah Fest alumni John Alvarez, formerly of the bands Egg, Ragged Out and Kuartizar.  Manos International is a fully volunteer-run non-profit organization providing enriching educational, cultural, and youth development programs to children in poor, remote areas.

Making their Hialeah Fest debut will be Afrobeta, Diane Ward, The Astrokats, Shark Valley Sisters, Las Tias, Lori Garrote, The Gun Hoes and Kenny Millions!  Back from a long Hialeah Fest absence will also be one of our favorite local soul funk bands, Ketchy Shuby!  Below is the lineup, but more artists will be added soon!
