Reggaetón: Hasta Abajo, Red Bull Music Festival 2018 in New York
The Red Bull Music Festival New York returns to the City this May for its sixth consecutive celebration with another diverse program of original, world premieres, and talks with icons and innovators, like Puerto Rico’s beloved “La Diva” del Reggaetón, Ivy Queen.
The festival’s Reggaetón Hasta Abajo (Reggaetón All the Way Down) event, a high-voltage tribute to tropical urban sound, has added Reggaetón royalty Ivy Queen to a bill that spotlights the impact of genre pioneers and the new wave of Latinx culture shifters.
Festival tickets for the event that will take place this weekend are now on sale via nyc.redbullmusicfestival.com.
Over the last two decades, Reggaetón has become a globally dominating genre that increasingly delivers record-smashing impact on music sales, streams and pop-culture influence.
Hasta Abajo features Reggaetón trailblazers Ivy Queen, DJ Nelson, Ranking Stone, Alberto Stylee, Wiso G, and DJ Negro, performing together as The Noise, the group who helped blaze the pathway for the genre’s international trajectory from the barrios of Puerto Rico to the world.
Also performing is industry legend DJ Lobo, and rising música urbana stars, Riobamba and Rosa Pistola, two artists who are leading Reggaetón’s evolution from the streets of Brooklyn and Mexico City, respectively.
The Red Bull Music Festival New York will be held this Saturday, May 19th at Uptown Manhattan’s famed Latino nightlife hub, La Marina.
