A special BOGO (buy one ticket for $18, get another free) promotion will happen for one day only from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 3.

The Urban Festival is the only event in Laredo that combines art and music. This unique event will includes live rock music, rap performances, break dancing, deejay mixes, skateboarding, live graffiti paintings, and local arts and crafts on display. It is aimed at highlighting local talent and uniting current trends. This event is for all ages.

“We encourage families to come out and see what the young adults are doing these days. We want to encourage them to follow their passion, whether it be skating, rockin’, rapping, deejaying, creating art, or break dancing,” said event organizer David Perez, a.k.a. DJ “toodope Dave.”

“UrbanFest is such a unique festival for all styles and tastes. We’re glad that tdK has chosen the arena to host this annual festival,” said Xavier Villalon, general manager of the SMG-managed Laredo Energy Arena.

We are deeply committed to spreading diversity and enhancing pride through entertainment. Our goal is to knock down barriers by bringing different groups together using major passion points such as music and art. We believe with this strategy, we can fight the battle against drugs and violence in our communities and create the best avenues for the young minds of Laredo.
