Tropicália Fest was one of the best first year fests we’ve ever been to, and some bands are starting to trickle out as hinted at/confirmed. Thus far, Yellow Days announced an appearance on November 4th for the second annual event in Long Beach, and Observatory, the venue responsible for the fest, just hinted that Mac DeMarco will also be playing Tropicália in the post below.

In addition to the pic of Mac, the location is marked as Tropicalia, and the emojis are referencing the coasting setting in Long Beach, and tacos, which are heavily featured in an all you can eat option for the fest.

Mac is famous for appearances at FYF, and Camp Flog Gnaw, so a performance at Tropicalia is in line with not only the demographic/genre of bands playing, but lines up with similarly booked Goldenvoice fests.

Observatory also doesn’t mess around with confirming bands. For example, they’d famously post images of Tyler, the Creator, before announcing one of the coolest mini-fests around with him, Clairo, Bane’s World, and more, which you can read about here.

We’re excited for the upcoming event, and hope that the lineup is announced soon. The already tremendous hype surrounding Yellow Day’s early confirmation, reached fever pitch, and months later, even closer to the date of the fest, they’re just getting started dropping hints that bands like Mac DeMarco play.

Tropicalia 2018 is already starting to heat up as one of the hottest fests of the year.

For more information, stay tuned, and read our recaps from Tropicalia last year.
