La Gran Fiesta
The performers for La Gran Fiesta at Dodger Stadium on Sept. 19 range from one of People En Español’s 50 Most Beautiful to artists with L.A. roots in a multi-musical genre celebration.
La Gran Fiesta is the grand finale of the free Viva Los Dodgers Day festivals. It will take place in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, with gates opening at 9:45 a.m. and the concert beginning at 10 a.m.
The headliner is Dulce Maria, who has twice been selected to the People en Español’s 50 Most Beautiful list. The singer-songwriter and actress has been a pop star since she was 10 years old.

Sonsoles, an L.A.-based group with influences such as Ozomatli and Juanes, will perform its eclectic brand of music prior to Dulce Maria.
