This Saturday, Johnson Field will be transformed into a gated performance space that will play host to DJ, Ookay and Boogie for Fiestas 2019.
Every year the Associated Students of New Mexico Student Special Events (SSE) puts on Fiestas, an annual music festival held at the University of New Mexico. The festival starts at noon and will be lighting up the faces of attendees until around 9 p.m.
Abraham 'Abe' Laguna, also known as Ookay, is an LA-based DJ and will be headlining this year's event. He is most popularly known for the remix he did with Diplo of Avicii's "You Make Me." The 27-year-old has also created tracks with Marshmello and Noah Cyrus.
Boogie, hailing from Compton, California, will bring his rap and R&b infused tracks to the stage, opening up for Ookay.
Other performers includes rapper, Jandro, DJ Gemini and Red Light Cameras, who hail from Albuquerque. In the past, SSE has hosted acts including Jack White, The Shins, Jason Mraz and Carnage.
EDM duo Hippie Sabotage headlined last year's Fiestas.
As attendees enjoy the entertainment, they can also enjoy food and goodies from local vendors. Fiestas is free for everyone and open to the public.
