Tucanes De Tijuana "Make History": First Time Norteño Group Plays Coachella

Tucanes vow to "make history" at Coachella 2019

With more than 14 million albums sold worldwide, 69 top Billboard hits, 30 platinum records, 12 Grammy nominations, 120 concerts a year, and front page spreads in major publications across the U.S. and Mexico, Los Tucanes de Tijuana (originally from Sinaloa) have been making history throughout their almost 40-year career.

The only difference in 2019 will be the venue. 

This year, Los Tucanes will be making their mark and representing regional Mexican music for the first time on stage at Coachella, one of the top ten music festivals in the world, with over half a million people in attendance.



Whereas in 2018 Bad Bunny and J Balvin side-kicked for Cardi B and Beyoncé, this year Los Tucanes (along with the reggaetoneros) will have their own solo set on Friday of both weekends. (J. Balvin both Saturdays and Bad Bunny both Sundays).

Looks like Coachella is finally recognizing the popularity and star power of Latin music.  With 70 billion streams in the U.S. alone last year, and representing 8 out of the 10 most-viewed videos on YouTube, it's no wonder Coachella's lineup is starting to reflect the exploding popularity of Latin music.

We may not be headlining yet, pero, como Los Tucanes said in their IG post:

"Que nuestro género siga creciendo y conquistando diferentes culturas!"

"May our genre keep growing and conquering different cultures."
