Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalía is confirmed to participate at the 2020 LatinFest+ produced by Billboard and Telemundo in a superstar Q&A taking place the week of April 20-23 in Las Vegas. Formerly known as Billboard Latin Music Week, the now substantially bigger week-long event and panel series will unite Latin’s top artists, including Los Tigres del Norte, Ozuna and J Balvin, to celebrate Hispanic music and entertainment at large.

The inaugural Latinfest+ also marks the 30th anniversary of Billboard’s Latin Music Conference, the longest-running and biggest Latin music gathering in the world.
Hailed in the course of 2019 as one of the breakthrough artists of the world, Rosalía was the only newcomer to secure a spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Latin Artists chart and one of only six female acts to claim a spot on the 50-deep male predominant list. The Spaniard has steadily populated the Latin charts captivating the industry with her flamenco genre-bending sonority and stylistic musical collision making the 26-year-old, a trailblazer of the genre.
Her second studio album, the flamenco-pop-urban tinged El Mal Querer debuted at No. 10 on the Top Latin Albums chart and Rosaliía has claimed four titles on the Hot Latin Songs chart, including “Con Altura,” with J Balvin and El Guincho, which peaked at No. 13 and won best urban song at the 2019 Latin Grammy awards.
Latinfest+ will be an immersive, week-long experience for the Latin entertainment industry, artists, executives and fans and will include superstar conversations, industry panels and workshops, celebrity fireside chats, live concerts, fan experiences and live activations of some of Billboard’s most celebrated franchises, including On the Rise and Growing Up Latino.
The full-run week of activities culminates with the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which will air live April 23 on Telemundo. Finalists for the awards will be announced in February.
