Ruido Fest is moving our dates to August 20-22, 2021. We’re very disappointed that we won’t be celebrating with you this summer, but the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic means that our primary focus is everyone’s health and safety. That being said, we’re happy to have over a year to plan for next year’s party—and our 1st headliner, Café Tacvba, will close Ruido Fest 2021 on Sunday night! Tickets are ON SALE NOW via and

As an added bonus: If you already purchased a presale ticket directly from us to Ruido Fest 2020—or, if you buy your ticket to Ruido Fest 2021 before midnight on August 23rd, 2020—you’ll gain unlimited weekend access to the brand new ZONA DE SUPER RUIDOSXS, an exclusive area next to the Main Stage filled with perks.

What kind of perks? The ZONA DE SUPER RUIDOSXS will include a daily schedule of Ruido artist meet-and-greet, a dedicated stage-front viewing area, and a ton of free goodies only for SUPER RUIDOSXS—plus more surprises to come. We respect your loyalty and trust more than ever, so access to this area will only be available to those who purchase a GA or VIP ticket before midnight on August 23rd, 2020. (We won’t sell any SUPER RUIDOSXS tickets past then!)

Also, all 2021 Tickets and Ruido Fest Official Merchandise purchases from today through midnight August 23rd of 2020 will include a $5 donation to Voto Latino. Voto Latino is a grassroots organization focused on voter registration, education and empowerment of a new generation of Latinx voters to create a more robust and inclusive democracy.

That all sounds awesome, but maybe you could use the money back from that 2020 ticket right now? No problem at all. You can request and receive a refund, no questions asked, through Midnight August 23, 2020; read here for more information on refund requests, transferring tickets, and other ticket options. Want to know more about the ZONA DE SUPER RUIDOSXS?  Check out our ZDSR FAQ for more details.  If you want your 2020 ticket to rollover to 2021, no further action is necessary.  You’re set for next year.

We truly appreciate your patience and dedication to Ruido Fest, and can’t wait to sing, and dance, and laugh with you again. In the coming year, we’ll be sharing multiple waves of band announcements, iconic album performances, after parties, one-of-a-kind merchandise, and updates on everything you will be able to experience at Ruido Fest 2021 in Chicago.

Until then: Please wear a mask, wash your hands, and contribute to the health and wellness of all humankind as much as you can. Thank you for your continued support of Ruido Fest.
