Seaside parties headlined by top Latin artists such as Ozuna and Nicky Jam are set take place this year as live events slowly start to come back following a yearlong COVID-19-imposed shutdown of the live industry.
From the three-day Jam World in Miami to the third annual Baja Beach Fest and Ozuna’s Cancun Fest, below is an updating list of Latin music festivals set for 2021.
Jam World (May)
From May 13-15, Nicky Jam will host a three-day event filled with live music events, private parties, pool parties and more. Titled Jam World and set in Miami, the fest will bring together the “El Perdón” singer with other artists such as Manuel Turizo, Dalex and Sky Rompiendo, among others.

Baja Beach Fest 2021 is set to take place Aug. 13-15 and Aug. 20-22 with J Balvin, Anuel AA and Ozuna confirmed as headliners for the festival’s third edition. Launched in 2018 as a single-day event in 2018 in Rosarito Beach in Baja California, Mexico, the now multi-day reggaeton and Latin trap festival will include performances by Karol G, Becky G, Farruko, Guaynaa, Jhay Cortez, Paloma Mami and Rauw Alejandro, among others.
Neón Experience (September)
J Balvin will be joined in Las Vegas by Karol G, Jhay Cortez, Rauw Alejandro, Jowell & Randy and producers Tainy and Sky Rompiendo in September for a weekend of experiences and performances he’s dubbed his “Neón Experience,” presented by Pollen Presents.
The event will take place in Las Vegas during Mexican Independence Weekend, Sept. 16-19, which traditionally has been a huge weekend for Latin music in Vegas, typically featuring big stars playing arena shows.
Capped at just 3,000 tickets, the three days and nights of events are being curated by Balvin and will include a headlining concert with him. Different “experiences” will take place in various locales in the new Resorts World Las Vegas, including its entertainment venues Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub.
Ozuna Fest (November)
The reggaeton star will host a four-day festival in Cancún set to take place Nov. 4-8. The event will include headline performances, pool parties and night events curated by the Puerto Rican chart-topping artist himself. Ozuna Fest will kick off with an opening party with performances by Myke Towers & Boza. Artists such as Wisin and Nathy Peluso are also scheduled to perform.
