For its eighth annual event, VillaMix Festival Goiânia has tapped Shawn Mendes and Nick Jonas to join some of the biggest names in Brazilian music when the festival takes place the weekend of June 30 and July 1. In addition to adding the global pop stars to their lineup, VillaMix is also growing its brand with expansion to other countries and continents.
VillaMix Festival Goiânia 2018 will take place in the capital of Brazilian state Goiás near the Serra Dourada stadium. The summer edition of VillaMix follows a previous excursion to Paraguay in March. For the Goiânia audience, Jonas will close out the show on Saturday, June 30, and Mendes will conclude the festival on Sunday, July 1. Jorge & Mateus, Simone & Simaria, Matheus & Kauan, Wesley Safadão, Alok, Aviões, Kevinho, Cleber & Cauan, Jefferson Moraes, Jonas Esticado, Guilherme and Santiago, Edu Chociay and JetLag are also set to take the stage.
Since its inaugural year, VillaMix has steadily grown from one festival at Serra Dourada to multiple events around Brazil -- reaching as many as 30 shows in 2014 and garnering Guinness Book Of World Records distinctions for the largest event stage in the world in 2015 and 2017. This year, the festival will go intercontinental on October 6 at the Alice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal. So far, Jorge & Mateus, Alok, Matheus & Kauan, Simone & Simaria, Kevinho, and Wesley Safadao have been confirmed to return to the VillaMix stage.
