Saludos, camaradas de Conjunto. Getting ready for the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center's 34th Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio 2015 which will take place from May 13-17 at the Guadalupe Theater and Rosedale Park, and as has become my annual ritual, I'm asking for your recommendations on who you think that I should definitely include in this year's Conjunto Fest line-up? As you know, my formula for the festival has always been to present the best in Conjunto music, the living legends and most popular conjuntos performing today, as well as some of those new and outstanding conjuntos who have never performed at the festival before. I try to present the musical line-up in a memorable way that you'll only get at the Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio, the first, oldest and largest festival in the world that is dedicated to Conjunto music.

Let me know who you think are the best conjuntos performing today and who you think I should include in next year's musical line-up. Send me the name of the conjunto and, if they're a new conjunto, a link to some of their music, if possible. I should be finalizing the tentative schedule for the 34th Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio 2015 by early January.

Como siempre, gracias por sus sugerencias and Jappy Jaladays of health and happiness to you and your familias. Juan

Just to say this is an awesome festival.

In 2014 I travelled from Scotland to the 33rd Festival and it will always be one of the highlights of my life.
The music was superb and the people of San Antonio were extremely welcoming and kind to me during my week's vacation.

If anyone living outside USA is thinking of travelling to San Antonio for this festival then I'm happy to offer my thoughts on accommodation, travel etc etc.

Cucuy accordionists to invade San Antonio this May!

Gracias to TheRose and JSegura for posting the winning poster and complete schedule/musical line-up for the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center's 34th Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio 2015 which will be held from May 13-17 at the Guadalupe Theater and Rosedale Park. I think we have one of the strongest musical line-ups since I've been back these last eight years. Over 190 conjuntos were recommended to me this year (the most ever). I was only able to squeeze in 34 bands and musical acts including some of the best and most popular conjuntos performing today, nine returning legendary Conjunto Music Hall of Famers and nine bands that have never performed at the festival before. 

Other highlights include "Los Hijos de las Leyendas" night; a "Women in Conjunto Music Tardeada Showcase"; a free special screening of the documentary film "This Ain't No Mouse Music!"; a "Free Seniors Conjunto Dance"; inductions into the Conjunto Music Hall of Fame; a "Conjunto Student Showcase & Recital"; accordion & bajo sexto workshops; TCF poster exhibit; a special publication of the TCF program magazine; food & beverage booths, arts & crafts, and plenty and dancing and fun for the entire family. 

Hope to see you here in San Anto in May. Por favor spread the palabra and the schedule. Here's the link to the complete schedule once again:

Gracias, Juan
