on

The producers behind Baja Beach Fest, Chicago’s Reventon Promotions, and Lollapalooza are pleased to announce the first annual Sueños Music Festival, the largest Latin Reggaeton music event to ever take place in Grant Park in the heart of downtown Chicago. The 2-day, one-stage event will feature headliners J BalvinOzuna, and Wisin & Yandel, with performances from Myke Towers, El Alfa, Jhay Cortez, Sech, Fuerza Regida and many more over Memorial Day weekend, May 28 and 29, 2022.  Passes will be available this Friday at www.suenosmusicfestival.com.

The stacked Sueños Festival lineup features some of the hottest and most exciting Latin Reggaeton stars on the scene today. The festival will be J Balvin’s only Chicago appearance in 2022 and his first time back to the city since his iconic performance at Lollapalooza in 2019, and Reggaeton star Ozuna’s first performance in Chicago in four years. In a moment not to be missed, Wisin & Yandel will take the stage at Sueños as part of their final tour, “La Ultima Mision.” Jhay Cortez is one of Latin music’s rising stars and continues to deliver incredible music and notable collaborations including his hit song “Dakiti” with Bad Bunny, which has earned more than 1.2 billion streams on Spotify alone.

Sueños Festival (translation: dreams), was created to be an inclusive event with a mission to continue to celebrate and uplift Latin culture and the extraordinary music, people, food, and amazing energy that comes along with it. In addition to an entirely Latin lineup, the festival will feature a curated selection of Chicago’s best Latin food, art installations, a ferris wheel, multiple bars, and specialty cocktail lounges, and much more.

“Chicago is home to one of the largest Mexican populations in the country—making events like Sueños Festival an important opportunity to highlight the culture and the cultural contributions of our Latino community as a whole,” said Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot. “Through the power of music, food and much more, this exciting festival will showcase Chicago’s rich diversity and bring shows from some of the biggest names in music to our city for attendees to enjoy.”

“We’re honored to work with the producers of Lollapalooza and Reventon to bring a premier Latin festival to Grant Park in Chicago,” said Aaron Ampudia of Baja Beach Fest. “Reggaetón is a massive genre but remains underserved by live festivals in the US. We’re extremely proud to expand to the US and serve our community and everyone who enjoys Latin music. Chicago, estén listos para perrear. See you on Memorial Day Weekend.” 

​​“Over a decade ago, I started Reventon Promotions with a dream of bringing authentic and diverse Hispanic entertainment to Chicago,” said Enrique Medrano of Reventon Promotions. “Now I am excited and proud to be part of the first Sueños festival, an event that celebrates the Hispanic presence in the city, in addition to being held in the iconic and representative Grant Park right in the heart of downtown. What better place is there for thousands of people from different Latin American countries to meet, share, and celebrate with artists of the likes of J Balvin, Ozuna, and many more.”

By

Houston-based recording artist Dende rides down to “Georgia” with Platinum rapper Deante’ Hitchcock on his newest single. The TX-bred R&B singer showcases his tantalizing ability to seamlessly blend his lyrical skills with his soothing voice. The romantic ballad is Dende’s take on modern-day romanticism while staying true to who he is at his core. The self-proclaimed anime nerd continues to captivate his fan base by creating catchy hooks that boost his music’s replayability. 

“Georgia” is not Dende’s first collaboration with the Dreamville affiliate. Supporters of Dende & Deante’ alike have been begging the two young talents to reconnect musically since “Neck Up” featuring Bairi. Dende’s interesting life path and sense of humor have helped him cultivate a family-style fan base that isn’t afraid to be themselves. Although most R&B acts depend on their mystique, Dende’s vulnerability has helped him become one of the most relatable new upcoming acts in the underground space.

Inspired by indie legends like Chance The Rapper, Dende is excited to build upon the recent momentum of his impressive 2022. The silky-voiced crooner is gearing up for the release of his new EP, Before We Crash, set to arrive soon. Fans of artists like SminoLucky Daye, and Saba will gladly welcome Dende into their playlists.

YSL’s own BSlime releases a new project Love Me Or Don’t. The 15-track effort serves as a re-introduction to the burgeoning Atlanta rapper, made up of a diverse selection of well-composed tracks. The project features standout track “Whippin’ It” featuring Young Stoner Life Records patriarch and BSlime’s own uncle Young Thug, which is accompanied by a dynamic and futuristic visual. The tape also houses appearances from Toosie and more.

With Love Me Or Don’t BSlime showcases his melodic ability and skillful flows, giving listeners a whole new perspective on his music. The goal with the project is for fans to unstestand his authenticity. As he establishes himself as an artist, BSlime isn’t here to prove himself to anyone, but rather to simply be himself. About the project, he says “I’m not making music or going through life to “people please”. I’ll never be able to satisfy everyone. People will either love me or not regardless of what I drop and this is the inspiration behind the title.”

Love Me Or Don’t is the latest full length offering from BSlime,which is a direct follow up to his recently released single “Baguette” ft. Persona Jackson. BSlime is coming off of a monumental 2021, which included his features on Young Stoner Life’s #1 Billboard compilation album Slime Language 2 with “Really Be Slime” alongside YNW Melly and FN DaDealer and Young Thug’s acclaimed Punk, with “Peepin out The Window” with Future. Now, BSlime is ready to further establish himself as next up out of Young Stoner Life Records and carve out his own lane as one to watch out of Atlanta.
