MiO, the liquid water enhancer that changes water and inspires consumers to "shake things up," and Chevron will serve as primary sponsors of the Los Angeles festival.
"Univision Radio is proud to bring the H2O movement to the Los Angeles area," said Jack Hobbs, executive vice president of Sales, Univision Radio. "With this festival series we are bringing the new Latino generation we serve, the Hispanic 2.0 listener, together for their universal love of music."
The Los Angeles State Historic Park will contain a main stage featuring local and emerging artists and some of today's top names in music. In the past few weeks on Univision Radio stations, Chevron has been encouraging aspiring artists to upload their demo video or MP3 onto H2OMusicFestival/YourBand in the "Chevron Brings Your Band to the Stage" emerging artist promotion. Beginning on May 14, up to 30 finalists will be featured online, and from there Univision Radio listeners will vote for the five artists they want to see perform at H2O Los Angeles.
Additional H2O Los Angeles events include a vendor village featuring festival and artist merchandise, a lifestyle area, multiple watering holes, cool down tents, gaming areas, family areas, plus food and beverage, and more.
Univision Radio DJs will also be on hand throughout the festival mixing music as a transition between acts to keep the momentum going throughout the night. In addition to Univision's support of the festival series on a national level, Univision television and radio stations in Los Angeles, Frenso, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Diego and Phoenix are supporting H2O Los Angeles.
The first H2O Music Festival will take place in Dallas on June 9 in the historic Cotton Bowl, featuring artists like Juanes, Snoop Dogg, Calle 13, Gym Class Heroes, Prince Royce, Weezer, Paulina Rubio, Damian Marley, Duelo, Yelawolf, Paty Cantú, Ozomatli, Intocable, Ramon Ayala and Bobby Pulido.
