While the roster of musicians and singers who will be gracing the stage will not be made public, the audience is guaranteed a show filled with top names in music.

  • Coolers with outside food and non-alcoholic beverages are allowed on the quad grounds. Styrofoam is prohibited and alcoholic beverages will be confiscated.
  • Food will be sold at the Plaza and the Offices of Casco Antiguo will host a “Sabores del Barrio” (“Food of the Barrio”) stand on the concert grounds.
  • Alcoholic beverages will be sold on the premises, courtesy of Ron Abuelo and Heineken.
  • Smoking is not allowed.
  • Pets are not allowed.

Concert-goers are reminded to be considerate of others by not limiting the visibility of the stage by wearing large hats or using parasols to block the sun. Remember to stay hydrated, wear sunblock and dispose of rubbish in the proper receptacles.
