Mala Luna Music Festival returns to San Antonio this fall after a sell-out inaugural event. The second annual EDM/hip-hop festival will take place at the historic Lone Star Brewery October 28-29. Performers will be announced in the coming weeks, but tickets are available now.

The festival has released a limited number of early bird general admission tickets, priced at $98.50 each. They are available through Thursday, April 6, but fans must sign up for the festival’s newsletter or 98.5 The Beat’s email newsletter to snag them. 

Regularly priced general admission and VIP passes go on sale Friday, April 7, at 10 am. Two-day general admission tickets are $109; VIP passes, which include such perks as preferred viewing areas, expedited entry, and dedicated bars, start at $139. 

The first Mala Luna event was a huge success, with 30,000 guests in attendance and a lineup featuring some of the buzziest names in EDM and hip-hop. Headliners included Kaskade, Travis Scott, G-Eazy, and Steve Aoki.

Mala Luna goes beyond music, too, by showcasing local art displays, food vendors, and merchants. "We want Mala Luna to be a reflection of the culture and the people of San Antonio," said event producer Zach Paul ahead of the inaugural event. 

Stay tuned for the full lineup, which is expected to drop in the coming weeks.
