Ozuna to Headline Calibash in January 2022

Ozuna is headed to a massive bash

After being sidelined in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Calibash will return to Los Angeles’ Staples Center in January 2022 to celebrate its quinceañera, with the Puerto Rican singer serving as one of the headlining acts.

Ozuna

For the first time ever, this year’s Calibash will be a three-day show (January 14-16), headlined by Ozuna (January 14), Daddy Yankee (January 15) and J Balvin (January 16) along with a roster of superstars.

Also performing are Wisin & Yandel, Myke Towers, Becky G, Sech and Natanael Cano (on Day 1); Natti Natasha, Manuel Turizo, Rauw Alejandro, Lunay and Kali Uchis (Day 2); and Nicky Jam, Black Eyed Peas, Jhay Cortez, Justin Quiles and Nío García (Day 3).

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. June 1 on asx.com.

The multi-artist show, produced and presented by SBS Entertainment, is the best-known urban Latin festival in the United States, and perhaps, the best-known Latin fest in the country.

Staged every year at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and for the past three years also in Las Vegas, Calibash has since its inception reflected and set trends, hosting acts like Chris Brown, Jennifer Lopez and Justin Bieber alongside Latin names like J Balvin, Enrique Iglesias and Nicky Jam.

“There’s nothing like it,” says Alessandra Alarcón, president of SBS Entertainment, the live event arm of SBS, which also owns the SBS radio network and TV station La Mega. “We’re activating the entirety of LA Live. We’ll have an outdoor stage with performances by local and up and coming artists, and inside, for the first time, we’ll have three completely different talent lineups.”

Prices will range from $45 for the cheapest seat to $1,000 for a top VIP seat (which grants access averaging $150 per night and $600 for a three-day pass). Aside from ticket sales, SBS also sells merchandise and of course sponsorships, both for the indoor and outdoor portions of the fest.

“Do you think we should add more Cardi ad-libs?” Lopez asks Khaled in the video.

Calibash, billed as “the leading urban Latin music festival in the world,” is presented by SBS Entertainment, AEG Live and Mega 96.3 FM. The latest edition of the 7-year-old festival was previously scheduled to take place on Nov. 22.

SBS moved the Calibash date ahead when iHeartMedia launched its own Latin mega concert, the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, on that same November date.

Tickets for Calibash 2015 go on sale on November 21 through axs.com.

Jesse & Joy Among the Headline Acts for This Year’s ‘Amor a Nuestra Música’ Event

Jesse & Joy are ready for a little amor

The Latin Grammy-winning Mexican pop duo, comprised of siblings Jesse Huerta and Joy Huerta, will be among the headliners at Spanish Broadcasting Systems‘ annual Amor a Nuestra Música multi-act show, taking place December 5 at Nassau Coliseum.

Jesse & Joy

Jesse & Joy, big winners at the 2012 Latin Grammys, join a roster that includes Luis Fonsi, Ricardo Montaner, Gloria Trevi, Pablo Alborán and Natalia Jiménez, along with Dominican bachatero Frank Reyes.

The show, which brings together top pop acts every year, is produced by SBS Entertainment — the event promotion arm of SBS — with support from SBS New York radio station 93.1 FM, Amor.

“We’re always looking to present the most innovative shows possible for the Latin community,” said Lucas Piña, SVP of SBS Entertainment. “Amor a Nuestra Música will feature a fantastic stage and cutting edge production. It’s out way of thanking our listeners for their support throughout the year.”

SBS has a long tradition of putting together massive, multi-act shows in major Latin markets in tandem with their local stations, which includes Mega 97.9 FM (La Mega) in New York, the most-listened to Spanish-language station in the country. The station’s annual “Megaton” took place in September, and featured performances by Juanes, Carlos Vives and Juan Luis Guerra, among others.

Amor, SBS’ pop station, is behind the annual “Amor a Nuestra Música” show, which features mostly pop acts and last year had performances by Ricky Martin and Vives, among others. SBS Entertainment also produces the annual Calibash in Los Angeles and El Día Nacional de la Salsa (National Salsa Day) in Puerto Rico, in addition to concert tours by multiple acts.

Tickets to Amor a Nuestra Música are available on Ticketmaster starting at $21, but listeners can also vie for free seats by tuning into Amor or registering at the station’s website.

Martin Among the Performers at the First-Ever iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina

Ricky Martin is ready for a little iHeart action…

The 42-year-old Puerto Rican singer has been named one of the performers at iHeartMedia’s first-ever Latin mega concert.

Ricky Martin

The iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina will take place at the Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 22, with a high-octane performance from Martin, as well as Daddy Yankee, Roberto Tapia, Alejandra Guzmán, La Original Banda el Limón feat. Voz a Voz and Jesse & Joy.

The event will be co-produced by iHeartMedia and Live Nation.

The iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina will be the newest of iHeartMedia’s multi-act concert events, modeled after the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party, the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour and the iHeartRadio Country Festival.

But in a twist, the inaugural Latin concert is taking place in the same city and the same date as Calibash, the big radio festival that Latin radio network giant SBS has produced for the past seven years.

As it has for the past several years, Calibash will take place at the Staples Center, also on Nov. 22, and is co-produced by SBS Entertainment together with AEG Live. Calibash is a predominantly urban show, and has sold out at the Staples every year, bringing in between 14,000 and 15,000 people. It’s one of multiple SBS mega concerts around the country, including the recent “Megatón” which took place at Madison Square Garden in New York last month.

IHeartMedia has a history of launching new events to compete with existing events. The iHeartRadio Awards, for example, premiered May 1, less than three weeks ahead of the Billboard Music Awards. But launching the same day as the competition may be a first, particularly for a niche genre like Latin.

“IHeartMedia’s Spanish and English radio stations reach 93 percent of the Hispanic population in the U.S. — more than any other media company — and our listeners have been asking for a show like this for a while,” says Tom Poleman, iHeartMedia’s president of National Programming Platforms, in a statement.
 
Despite iHeartMedia’s huge reach, the company has only 20 Spanish-language radio stations, none of them in Los Angeles.

Beginning on Oct. 2, iHeartMedia will launch a four-week nationwide promotion to give fans the opportunity to win a trip to the festival. The promotion will run on iHeart’s Spanish language stations and on key iHeartRadio markets. Tickets will go on sale Oct. 11.

The Latin music festival market also features major multi-artist concerts by many Latin radio networks, including Univision Radio, which produces its Uforia Music Festival in Los Angeles in the summer.
