TACO MADNESS, Presented by Bud Light Chelada, is L.A.'s first and biggest taco festival. All of L.A.'s heaviest hitting taquerías will be in one place for one day only! The 21 + event is happening this Saturday, May 6, at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in downtown Los Angeles. Ticket sales proceeds will support L.A. TACO's award-winning street-level journalism.

"His Father Used to Work Coachella — Now DannyLux Is One of the Festival’s Most Anticipated Performers," reads the headline on DannyLux's profile published on RollingStone last month. The Desert Hot Springs-raised native is set to serenade TACO MADNESS' festivalgoers this Saturday night.

His melancholic, guitar-led sound has found a large audience within the emerging "Mexican Regional" sound blowing up in streams worldwide. Thanks mainly to his breakout hit with Eslabon Armado, "Jugaste y Sufri," which now has over 178 million views on Youtube.

In a video released last month, he goes into detail about his upbringing and how his father used to drive a trash truck around the Coachella Valley. That led to DannyLux picking up a guitar that someone had thrown out at seven years old, and the rest is history.

When he was 16 years old, In mid-2020, DannyLux signed a contract with VPS Music. On January 15, 2021, he released his first album Las Dos Caras Del Amor, with hits such as "El Dueño de Tu Amor."
