You heard right – Doggface is hosting Latin Bash 2022 in Yakima.
But he’s not the only attraction. Latin Bash is 10 hours of music, featuring several artists.
Led by Doggface.
Nathan Apodaca, aka Doggface, became a TikTok star in late 2020 with a clip of himself skateboarding, drinking cranberry juice and lip-syncing to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.”
This landed him in a Klypso music video, “Low Rider (No Lighter)”, featuring Snoop Dogg, War, Cheech and Chong and George Lopez.
He is also set to appear in Season 2 of “Reservation Dogs” on Hulu.
Latin Bash is scheduled from 2 p.m. to midnight on Saturday, May 7 at Smoke It’s Smoke Shop, 2308 S. First St. in Yakima.
Tickets are on sale now at bit.ly/latinbashtickets. Options include Meet One Artist, Meet All Artists, and VIP group table options.
Tickets for 17 and under start at $30, adult tickets at $40.
