MIAMI - When the lineup of the first Bésame Mucho Festival was announced in 2022, many Latin music fans and industry experts had to take a second look. Wait, what, no reggaetón? It was a bold and daring decision at the time. However, it paid off. Not only have the two years of the festival in Los Angeles been a massive success, but the organizers held their first "Bésame Mucho" in Austin, Texas, this March.

Now comes the third edition in Los Angeles. It has been announced that the Bésame Mucho Festival 2024 will take place on Saturday, December 21, 2024, at Dodger Stadium, with a capacity of 56,000 seats. The lineup will be headlined by Shakira, Los Tigres del Norte, Banda MS, and Enrique Iglesias, and includes 70 of the best and most popular artists in Latin music, except, the urban Latin music stars.

The event promises to be one of the most outstanding music festivals of the year, awaited mainly by the Mexican and Latino communities residing in the United States.

Who will be at the 2024 Bésame Mucho?

The festival will offer music for all tastes, including Latin pop and rock, as well as regional mexicano genres such as norteño, grupero, and tropical music like bachata, salsa, and merengue. According to the organization's press release, there will be a "multi-generational participation that highlights the eclectic mix of Latin genres."

Other featured artists are Juanes, Belanova, Paulina Rubio, Gloria Trevi, Danna Paola, María José, and the duo Jesse and Joy. Similarly, tropical rhythm figures such as Bacilos, Proyecto Uno and Elvis Crespo round out the lineup.
