Earlier this year, the Pachanga Latino Music Festival restructured as a concert series and kicked off the new Pachanga Latino Music series at ACL Live. Now, the concert series brings a lineup of living legends to downtown Austin in August.
On Aug. 19, Pachanga presents Omara Portuondo and Eliades Ochoa of the Buena Vista Social Club. Last fall, Austin bid adieu to the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club where Portuondo and Ochoa were among the members on stage who gave an awe-inspiring performance during the group’s farewell tour. Concert tickets range from $45-75, and doors open at 6:30 p.m.
