TORREMOLINOS will be the setting for the largest Latin Festival to be held in Spain this coming Summer which will run over the weekend of July 17 and 18.

The Latin Soul Festival will include a selection of Spanish born musicians as well as visitors from Latin America and the line-up announced so far sees Reggaeton headliner from Puerto Rica Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez Bautista, better known as Daddy Yankee.

Now in his early 40s this innovative musician who is considered to be The King of Reggaeton has more than 25 million followers on his Facebook page, has won numerous awards but surprisingly has only released seven albums with his latest The Hard Disk coming out in 2020.

Perhaps best known in crossover circles as appearing on the original release of Despacito with Luis Fonsi he is bound to draw a large crowd to the event which will be held at the Esplanade of the Torremolinos Fairground.

Others taking part include 23-year-old female singer from Barcelona who performs as Bad Gyal and is now one of the rising stars of the Spanish urban music scene.

Joining the growing list of performers is Lennis Rodriguez from the Dominican Republic as well as RVFV (Rafael Ruiz) just 18 from Almeria who has found fame with his afrotrap style.
