Calibash and El Día Nacional de la Banda (National Day of Banda) are set to return to Las Vegas in 2022 with back-to-back star-packed lineups, SBS Entertainment announced Wednesday (Oct. 13).

Set to take place Jan. 28, the banda-focused event will feature regional Mexican acts such as Los Dos Carnales, El Fantasma, Los 2 De La S, La Arrolladora Banda El Limón, La Adictiva Banda San José de Mesillas, Banda Los Sebastianes and La Original Banda El Limón, among others.

Calibash Vegas, on Jan. 29, will include performances by Don Omar, Karol G, Maluma, Farruko, El Alfa and El Chacal. Both events will take place at T-Mobile Arena.

"Latin music fans no longer have to wonder if Calibash Las Vegas and El Dia Nacional de la Banda will return," said Alessandra Alarcón, president, SBS Entertainment. "We can proudly confirm we’re bringing both events back – bigger than ever before – with many mind-blowing, unforgettable surprises throughout the weekend. I can’t guarantee what will happen in Vegas will stay in Vegas."

Over the summer, Billboard reported that Calibash will celebrate 15 years with its first three-day fest January 14-16 in Los Angeles after being sidelined in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event in L.A. will be headlined by Ozuna (January 14), Daddy Yankee (January 15) and J Balvin (January 16) along with a roster of superstars.

Tickets for both Las Vegas events go on sale Friday, Oct. 15, at 1 p.m. ET at AXS.com.
