Billboard Latin Music Week has been the longest-running and largest Latin music industry gathering in the world for over 30 years, uniting generations of talent with fans and garnering billions of press hits, engagements, and viewership worldwide. The event returns to coincide with Hispanic Heritage Month, following a special, sold-out 2021 edition that featured star Q&As with Daddy Yankee and Karol G and showstopping performances by Daddy Yankee, Anitta, Rauw Alejandro, and Natti Natasha.
"We couldn't be more excited to return to Miami for the world's biggest celebration of Latin Music," said Mike Van, President of Billboard. "Billboard is the global authority in music charting, and it's been amazing to witness the proliferation of Latin artists excelling beyond genre specific charts and into the mainstream. Billboard remains committed to celebrating artists and creating one-of-a-kind experiences that connect them to their passionate fans. We are eager to continue to build upon the experience and are proud of Billboard's legacy of supporting Latin Music and its undeniable impact on music and culture."
