The inaugural Rumbazo Latin Music Festival, slated to take place in Las Vegas this September, has announced its lineup. Termed as a true celebration of Latin rhythm and pride, the festival will feature Colombian singer Maluma as the headliner.
Scheduled during the Hispanic Heritage Month, the Rumbazo Latin Music Festival has promised a “el reventón del año” (the party of the year) on September 10 and September 11.
In a statement, Maluma said:
“I’m looking forward to performing at Rumbazo, in celebration of our Latin music and culture! So happy to be a part of this reventón del año!”
The festival organizer Vic Juarez said:
“While this may be called a festival by industry standards, there will be so much more integrated into Rumbazo. We chose downtown Las Vegas as it is the heart of the city and the ideal location for a celebration. We invite the entire Las Vegas community to join us for this massive party – el reventón del año.”
