BY SAMANTHA ANNE CARRILLO

The inaugural Festival Chispa, an all-day alt.Latin and Hispanic culture fest, happens Saturday, June 25, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW). The free, all-ages day programming begins at 10:30 a.m. and concludes at 3:30 p.m. Workshops on Latin music and performing arts, and Hispanic art and culture run throughout the day.

The ticketed concert begins at 6 p.m. at the Plaza Mayor. Local bands on the lineup include Mala Maña, Baracutanga and The Big Spank. Solo electronica project Mexican Institute of Sound reps the vision of DJ/producer Camilo Lara.

Hailing from LA (by way of Tijuana), Spanish-language synth-pop diva Ceci Bastida closes out the evening. Presale tickets are $22, and the fee jumps $5 at the door. For more info or to buy tickets, visit nhccnm.org or call 724-4771.

Festival Chispa, Sat., June 25, 10:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m., National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 Fourth Street SW, 724-4771, nhccnm.org, festivalchispa.org
