About “El Grito”
El Grito is a popular holiday in Mexico that observes the day in 1810 when priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang the bells of his small parish and inspired the people to rebel against the Spanish monarchy and take control of their own lives, country, and destiny, which changed Mexico forever. The El Grito musical festival at Coachella Crossroads celebrates Mexican pride through two days of performances by beloved musical groups, many well known in the Mexican Regional music genre.

“We are pleased to bring this amazing array of performers to Coachella Crossroads to help celebrate this import Mexican holiday,” said Chairman Darrell Mike of The Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians. “This is the first large-scale musical festival that the venue has hosted and demonstrates the versatility of the performance space. We look forward to sharing this exciting event with the community.”

Here is the El Grito line-up for both days:

Their 2011 debut album, Puros Corridos, featured the single "El Proceder de Manuel," which garnered accolades on both sides of the border. Sinaloense Hecho y Derecho, an album released in 2014, was a major breakthrough for the group. The title track was an immediate hit and the follow-up single, "Mi Pequeno Mundo," fared even better. In 2016, the album Loe Que Pesa Mi Palabra produced the hit "Juro Quererte" and peaked at No. 3 on the Hot Latin Albums charts.

Banda Los Sebastianes

He assembled the group from a large cast of top-flight veteran musicians from other acts who all shared the desire to inject new energy into the banda movement. The title track single from their album Indeleble landed inside the Top 40 of the Billboard Mexican Songs Chart, and the video racked up hundreds of thousands of views. The band has toured the U.S. and Mexico. In June of 2016, they issued their seventh album, Luces, Camara y Accion. The title track was released as its first single and landed inside the Top 20.

Their 1993 song “No Bailes de Caballito,” took them to the peak of success and was heard daily on almost all Mexican radio stations.
