Following its first-ever virtual edition in 2020, Billboard’s Latin Music Week is set to return live to Miami on September 20-25. Under the slogan “The Beat of Latin Music,” the weeklong celebration will feature live conversations, workshops, showcases and performances with Latin’s top hitmakers, actors, influencers and industry leaders.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring the world’s biggest celebration of Latin music, Billboard Latin Music Week, back to Miami,” said Julian Holguin, president of Billboard. “After a trying year, both artists and fans are eager to engage in music’s unique ability to represent diverse voices and bring people together. We know that this year’s festivities will encourage attendees and viewers to experience Latin culture, revel in generation-defining music and connect with one another like never before.”
“We are immensely proud to bring the first live and presential industry event since the advent of the pandemic last year,” said Leila Cobo, vp, Latin industry lead, Billboard. “Billboard Latin Music Week is the biggest and longest-running Latin music event in the world, and a tentpole for the Billboard brand and the Latin community. Celebrating our Latin culture and music safely alongside fans and artists was our first priority and we are thrilled to be back and in Miami.”
Billboard’s Latin Music Week has for decades been a driving force in Latin music. Last year’s virtual edition featured Q&As with superstars Maluma and Jennifer Lopez, Ozuna, Anuel AA, J Balvin and Los Tigres del Norte, among others. Previous editions of the conference have featured artists like Romeo Santos, Enrique Iglesias, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, Jenni Rivera and Laura Pausini.
