More events at Downtown Albuquerque

A city-wide festival that showcases the best, world-class entertainment, food vendors and local restaurants, craft brewing, arts and culture organizations, nonprofits, tech, and more.

SOMOSABQ is a city-wide festival that will showcase the very best ABQ has to offer, including world class entertainment, food vendors & local restaurants, craft brewing, arts and culture organizations, nonprofits, technology companies, and more.

For one day each year, let's illuminate every good thing we know our city to be.
We've all -- often together -- been part of meetings that aim to "define the story of Abq." That conversation is important. But we live those stories every day. They're why we love this place. So what if we join creative forces and *show* instead of *tell*? SOMOS Albuquerquw is a collaborative effort -- by all the people who've been contemplating a full-blown, city-wide celebration in downtown for years -- with a philanthropic goal and an eye towards sustainability.

Saturday Part II

SOMOS ABQ 2017, a multidiscipline event aimed at illuminating all the good our great city has to offer, has a musical aspect to it that I am sure you want to know all about. Besides producing a festival that features fine examples of local culture—including large scale art installations, a food courtyard, a beer garden sponsored by the New Mexico Brewers Guild and wondrous examples of technological advances that have had their development and fruition occur under our high desert skies—SOMOS will also feature four outdoor stages along the Central corridor between Fourth and Sixth Streets, near Gold.. The music at these stages is more than top-notch and in some cases, highlights legendary musicians and performers. The main stage features a performance by El Lay electro-wiz Dillon Francis, whose work mainly centers on a fusion of house music and reggaeton known as moombahton. The hip-hop stage will feature a set by the legendary Deltron 3030, which should be enough for anyone reading this on Saturday night to immediately put down what they’re doing and head the fuck Downtown for some serious jamming by Del the Funky Homosapien, Kid Koala and Dan the Automator. The indie stage, meanwhile, is no lightweight tangle of wires and amps and lights as Jet City stalwarts Minus the Bear are scheduled to appear. Country singer-songwriter Jackie Lee—whose string of recent string hit singles, including last year’s “Getting Over You” has taken Nashville (and New Mexico, too) by storm—will make an appearance on the SOMOS country stage. Tickets range in price from $10-$25 and the all-ages concerts begin at 4pm.
