Chicago, IL - February 10, 2016.-  After the successful debut of RUIDO Fest last year, the first 3 day multi-stage outdoor music festival in U.S. showcasing a variety of great Latin Alternative music acts from all over the continent and Spain, announced its return for the second year in Chicago on July 8, 9 & 10 at the Addams/Medill Park.
