This year’s Minerpalooza attendees can expect to enjoy a night full of Latin rhythms ranging from cumbias to reggaeton, leading up to headliner Sky Blu of LMFAO.

Starting off the evening at 6 p.m. is Azucar, a nine-piece Latin band that has been playing since the 70’s as a house band at the downtown Holiday Inn (now the Double Tree). The band plays a variety music from merengues and bachatas to corridos.

The Miner pep rally officially kicks off at 7 p.m. with the UTEP Pantastics, a percussion ensemble that plays on an array of steel drums.

The Globe of Death, the spherical motorcycle cage typically seen at carnivals and circuses, will follow the pep rally. According to the Minerpalooza official website, DJ Chris will accompany the act with music.

The night continues with SayVerse and Nina Sky, both famous for their Latin hits “Lo Siento” and “Move Yo Body,” which peaked at number four in Billboard’s “Hot 100.”

The event entrance is free and tickets for carnival games will be available at Sunbowl box office.
