A heady mix of debut commissions, one-off UK performances and the return of global superstars from across the Latin music world make La Linea one of the hottest music festivals in the capital.

It's not just taking part at the Barbican. The festival works with a range of London venues and boasts a stand-out line-up that features everything from traditional Cuban music, Latin rumba, ska and punk from Spain, Chilean classics, genre-spanning sounds from Mexico, and future Iranian/Afro-Cuban inspired electronica.
