Viña del Mar is just around the corner and we’re getting ready to watch!
Taking place every February in the coastal city of Viña del Mar, Chile, el Festival Internacional de la Canción de Viña del Mar is the largest and longest-running music festival in Latin America. For nearly 60 years, the Festival has drawn some of biggest names in music to its stage, including internationally renowned artists such as Ricky Martin, Thalía, Carlos Santana, Romeo Santos, Marc Anthony, and Shakira.
This year, we’re looking forward to a multitude of amazing performances from Ricardo Montaner, Ana Torroja, Javiera Mena, Wisin, and Don Omar, as well as from Latin Grammy award winners Marco Antonio Solís and Alejandro Sanz. Nicky Jam, who won three Premio Lo Nuestro on February 18th [Collaboration of the Year, Urban Song of the Year (“El Perdón”) and Urban Artist of the Year], and Pablo Alborán, fresh off his Goya win for Best Original Song (“Palmeras en la Nieve”), will also perform.
Luckily for viewers here in the U.S., NBC UNIVERSO is once again providing exclusive coverage of the Festival, available across multiple platforms: TV, mobile/tablets, PC, and On Demand.
