Co-presented by the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, the six-hour event will bring acts like Nina Sky, José Marquez and Uproot Andy together under headliner Kenny Dope on Nov. 10. Visual artist Carlos Rolón/Dzine will also honor Fania with a special installation inspired by their trailblazing history, which brought us the likes of Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe and Bobby Valentín.
