Last weekend, Mala Luna Music Festival took over San Antonio’s Nelson Wolff stadium. This year the festival had an eclectic mix of big-name headliners and local performers that the crowds cheered on. Day one started off with Maria Rose around noon on the Lonestar stage, but took off with Shoreline Mafia’s performance on the Beat stage that energized the audience for the entire nigh night. MoneyBaggYo, who filled in for Rich The Kid, brought the hype before Lil Baby on the Beat Stage as well. At this point the park was full of excited fans dressed in costumes who were ready to jump with Lil Baby and Becky G. They were followed by an incredible display of color and trippy graphics by Tyler the Creator who performed to a crowd full of fans screaming his songs word-for-word. Leading up to the end performance was Nicky Jam, and day one ended with explosive energy from Cardi B, who came out on stage ready to get hype with her first show post-baby.
Aside from music, Mala Luna included some talented art from local San Antonio artists. Of course, Whatabuger also made an appearance at this iconic Texas festival and even gave away free meals for a year to a lucky fan.
Day two began with Gracelynnd Gomez, Saweetie, and Smokepurpp on the Beat stage, who began the day and set the vibe. Leading up to the two closing acts, Gunna hyped up the crowd with his performance and they were still energized when Young Thug and Dillon Francis closed out the night with their electrifying performance. On the Lonestar Stage, day two started off with DJ Ultrasonic, Bambi, Rico Nasty, and Blocboy JB. Performer GTA hyped up the audience for Lil Pump’s performance, whose stage presence was intoxicating to the screaming fans. The festival closed with the much anticipated 2Chainz who killed his set and had the crowd screaming the entire time.
