The “Artists on the Rise” stage is an exclusive, high profile platform in the event’s largest exhibition space that every day will enable artists of all genres to showcase their talent in front of marketers, brands, bloggers, journalists, record labels, radio executives and other top Latino influencers.

The “Artists on the Rise” stage will activate every day around 4 p.m. as part of a special “Musical Happy Hour” that will refresh attendees with a nice break of fun and music after a long day of sessions and presentations.

Returning for the second year as the host of the stage is EMMY Award nominated TV host & producer of Té Para Tres, Pili Montilla. Pili will not only introduce the artists this year but will also perform short backstage Q&A’s that will be posted on social media.

The sixth annual Hispanicize event will continue to have a strong focus on helping attendees discover new music and bringing new fans to indie artists. “We carefully curated the artists who will be performing at this year’s Artist On The Rise stage. We wanted every day to feel completely different. One day you’ll be hearing a love song on a ukulele, next a full on Mariachi band, followed by the hottest DJ in the west coast, and some pop & R&B; All musically different, but all equally talented,” said Hispanicize Co-Founder and Music Executive Director, Katherine Johnson Gunn.
