World Sound Festival in Acapulco

Electronic music, live bands, jazz, hip-hop, latin rock and funk in November:

    “Music para el pueblo, caridad para el mundo.”

    “Music for the people, charity for the world” – it is with great excitement
    that WSF Productions announces the 2002 ACA World Sound Festival, which will
    take place November 1-3, 2002 in Acapulco, Mexico. ACA 2002 is the most
    anticipated event in Latin America. AWSF 2002 will be co-produced by World
    Sound Festival (WSF) Productions and En Vivo, which is co-owned by Televisa
    and Clear Channel.

    “We are very excited about our partnership with En Vivo and how amazing and
    eclectic this festival will be, setting a new standard for world-class
    events,” comments Michael Hahn, executive producer of the AWSF. With their
    expertise, AWSF will become “a global experience uniting the world through

    In November 2000, the first annual ACA World Sound Festival brought magic to
    Acapulco in a setting that was nothing short of paradise. 75 DJs and live
    acts (including Moby, Carl Cox, LTJ Bukem, Poncho Sanchez, et al.) kept five
    stages and 60,000 people dancing for three unforgettable nights. The spell
    of the moon, the breeze of the ocean, and the dazzling array of talent,
    costumes and light set a new standard for festivals all over the world.

    ACA reverberated long after the music stopped. True to their word, the
    festival donated $120,000 USD of the proceeds to build a kindergarten in a
    low income community of Acapulco, fund a home for orphans of AIDs victims
    and restored sight, through surgery, to more than 100 people.

    The ACA World Sound Festival 2002 will be even more spectacular than its
    predecessor. This year, the talent will reflect a truly global range of
    musical stars and styles. The first two days of the festival will take
    place on five stages constructed on the beach near Barra Vieja. The third
    night of the festival moves into the city, with a set of after parties at
    two of Acapulco¹s best clubs, Palladium and Enigma.

    While AWSF 2000¹s focus was on electronic music, this year¹s line-up, while
    remaining true to its electronic roots, will include live bands, jazz,
    hip-hop, latin rock and funk.

    The Main Stage will feature international live acts such as Beck with the
    Flaming Lips, Kinky, Resorte and DJs Sasha & Digweed, Jimmy Van M., Sander
    Kleinenberg, DJ Dan, Christopher Lawrence, Lee Burridge and Martin Parra.

    On the Jazz Stage, Los Amigos Invisibles, Jose Padilla, Gilles Peterson,
    Jason Bentley, Soulstice, Buscemi and Ruisort will perform.

    The Million Wishes Stage will include an eclectic array of performances by
    Ozomatli, Orishas, DJ Craze, WishFM, Mark Lewis, Misstress Barbara, Angela
    Flame, Donald Glaude, Danny Rampling, Pacou, Nopal Beat and Nazca.

    Confirmed performers on the House Stage include special extended sets with
    Deep Dish and Danny Tenaglia, as well as, performances by Danny Howells,
    Behrouz, Marques Wyatt, Steve Lawler, Max Graham, Julius Papp, Nordic Trax
    and Astral Tiger.

    The Psycho Solar stage will create a tribal community with its hypnotic
    rhythms featuring performances by Infected Mushroom, Vatos Locos, D-Tek &
    Dr. Panic, Vazik, Tyrone and Xibalba.

As if you need an excuse to bop down to Acapulco in November, this gives you a great one.
