A record 300,000 fans showed up to sway to the ska sounds of Argentine super band Los Fabulosos Cadillacs in Mexico City’s Zócalo central plaza on Saturday, June 3, with crowds overflowing into side streets and watching the pulsating Grammy winners on big-screen TVs provided by the capital’s government.

According to Mexico City Governor Claudia Sheinbaum, whose administration organized the free concert as part of her ongoing efforts to court constituent support for the candidacy of the incumbent National Regeneration Movement’s (Morena) party bid for Mexico’s 2024 presidential elections by offering massive rock fests in the city center, the Zócalo was “completely filled” beyond capacity.

“We made history again,” she said, “breaking an the attendance record with 300,000 people in the Zócalo enjoying the epic concert.”

The one-hour-40-minute Los Fabulosos Cadillacs concert coincided with the commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the group’s album “Vasos Vacíos.”
