Best Festivals With Latin Music in 2024 Around the Globe


Editor’s note: The list is updated on a monthly basis. Festivals that have already passed are deleted from the list.
From Lima Music Festival in Peru to the eclectic stages of Bilbao BBK Live in Spain and Festival Cordillera in Colombia, Billboard Español puts together the ultimate guide to festivals celebrating Latin music across the globe.
With reggaetón pop sensation Rauw Alejandro and corridos hitmaker Peso Pluma taking center stage at Governors Ball in New York, Sueños in Chicago and Baja Beach Fest in Mexico — the latter two festivals placing substantial bets on these genres — it’s clear that Latin music’s influence continues to expand rapidly.
We also see more eclectic lineups that combine Latin and Anglo headliners such as Primavera Sounds in Spain with main acts Lana Del Rey, Pulp, SZA, Mitski, and more are slated to perform; but also Venezuelan electronic producer Arca, Mexican-American crooner Omar Apollo, Argentine rapper Milo J, reggaetón pioneer DJ Playero, indie rockers Él Mató a Un Policía Motorizado, and Spanish trap star La Zowi.
Even in places historically less associated with Latin music — but not as much as one might think — such as in Italy with Milano Latin Festival who will host an over two-month-long music series starring Farruko, Christian Nodal, Maria Becerra, Juan Luis Guerra, Grupo Niche, Pimpinela, Olga Tañón and more.
While this may not be an exhaustive list, it serves as a comprehensive guide to some of the genre’s most significant events. Whether you’re a die-hard reggaetón fan, a salsa aficionado, or a lover of all things Latin, see our guide to the must-attend festivals across the globe, arranged in sequential order.
