Carlos Santana to close the 2015 Tajin Summit Festival

Posted by Jesus Mendoza on January 27, 2015

Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana will ring down the final curtain on the 2015 Tajin Summit Festival that will celebrate its 16th edition between March 19-23 in the archaeological area of Veracruz state.

The organizers have released the list of artists who will perform at the Tajin Summit.

Santana, 66, will appear onstage with Javier Batiz, 70, with whom he began playing the electric guitar back in the 1950s.

For the first time Batiz and Santana share a festival billing. Both guitarists, together with the singer from the El Tri group, Alejandro Lora, are considered key figures of Mexican rock.

It is precisely El Tri, together with Maldita Vecindad and Bolina Sin Parne, that will round out the program on the last day of the festival.

The Tajin Summit will be held at Takilhsukut Park, in the archaeological area of Tajin and in the main square of the city of Papantla, three locations in the Veracruz municipality of Papantla.

The festival will go on for five days with the participation of around 7,000 guest artists from Mexico and around the world, and will offer more than 5,000 cultural activities.

Among the attractions will be workshops, conferences, ceremonies, dance, theater, therapies, spiritual talks, expos, circus acts, concerts, kiddie shows and more. EFE
