The lineup for the third edition of Sueños Music Festival was announced on Tuesday (Jan. 23), with Peso Pluma, Ivan Cornejo, Rauw Alejandro and Maluma, who will grace the stage as headliners on the weekend of May 25 and May 26 in Chicago’s Grant Park.
The all-Latin music festival — known for highlighting música mexicana and urbano powerhouse performers in the same bill — will also host an exciting roster of buzzy up-and-coming acts such as Bad Gyal, Mora, Manuel Turizo, Xavi, Gabito Ballesteros and more.
Brought to you by Aaron Ampudia and Chris Den Uijl of La Familia Presenta, Sueños made its debut in 2022 with headlining acts J Balvin, Ozuna and Farruko. Returning acts include Puerto Rican rapper Young Miko, reggaetón pioneers Jowell & Randy and DJ Miriam, a Guatemalan-American DJ from Chicago.
Rocketing to stardom since the release of his viral 2021 hit “Está Dañada,” headlining teen idol Ivan Cornejo has soared to impressive heights. In 2022, he took home the title of new artist of the year at the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards, and kicking off 2024, the Riverside, Calif., native graced the January digital cover of Billboard.
From Guadalajara, Peso Pluma has introduced a unique voice to música mexicana, revitalizing the cultural essence of modern-day corridos. A historic moment unfolded when his groundbreaking album Génesis debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in July, making it the highest charting regional Mexican album to date.
A consistent presence on the Billboard charts since 2018, Rauw Alejandro has continued to soar. The Puerto Rican singer dropped his freestyle-driven album Saturno in 2023, followed by his Rosalía collaboration EP, RR, and then the summer release Playa Saturno.
Colombian superstar Maluma has also continued to be a constant force in Latin pop and beyond. He is currently the most nominated artist of 2024’s upcoming Premios Lo Nuestro with 14 nods.
Offering stellar views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline, Sueños Festival 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,” as the press release notes.
