Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, La Ley, and Maldita Vecindad will headline 2016’s Ruido Fest, the festival announced Wednesday. The second annual all-ages festival, which focuses on Latin alternative music, will run from July 8 to 10 in Pilsen’s Adams/Medill Park.

Other bands featured at this year’s fest will include the wonderfully-named rock band Sexy Zebras, Ibiza Pareo, and Hong Kong Blood Opera. You can check out the full 2016 lineup here.

It debuted last year in Pilsen. Three-day passes to this year's Ruido Fest go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for $129.98; single-day passes are slated to go on sale on an unspecified date in April.
