Breaking News: Blur is confirmed for yet another music festival -and this time it's in Mexico. Blur is set to play in one of Mexico's biggest music festivals in 2013 - the Vive Latino Festival. Blur will be playing on the 16th March 2013.
Other featured artists in the Vive Latino Festival 2013 include Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Morrissey and Underworld. Blur is set to be one of the festival's biggest main bands. The last time the iconic Britpop band played in Mexico was in 2003 for their last big tour to promote album Think Tank.
The announcement for Mexico sparks speculation about Blur for Coachella 2013 in California, United States of America. If they play in Mexico, it would be logical for Blur to play in America to the fans there.

The festival is on March 14th – 17th 2013 at Foro Sol in Mexico City, Mexico. This news followed on from Blur's confirmation of gigs in Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Poland for 2013.
More rumours about Blur headlining the Reading and Leeds Festivals of 2013 are circulating. More Europe dates should be announced soon as one of Blur's management have said that there will be a full-on tour in 2013.

The question that many are asking is: Will Blur have any new songs or new albums in time for their 2013 tours ? Can Blur tour without producing any new material ? With one festival lining up after another. Mexico is the latest one on the list, and Blur has a busy year ahead of them.
