“To turn our back on reggaeton would be foolish,” said Diego Jiménez, director of the Ceremonia music festival.

According to Jiménez what they try to do with this festival is to take a picture of what is going on in the contemporary music scene and hence they cannot overlook this urban music genre.

“We have always included reggaeton at our festival. This time, we have Tainy, who has worked with artists like J Balvin and although he’s not a reggaeton singer per se, he’s a producer and comes from it,” Jiménez said in an interview with EL UNIVERSAL.

“This festival gives the city national and international tourism; it generates resources and modifies the distribution of the public space; it turns Mexico City into a cultural city for public of all ages,” said Mackinlay.

Have you heard of Vive Latino 2020?

The Tourism Minister says that the effects are positive for tourism in the capital because music festivals make people turn their heads toward cultural events in the country.

“Festivals like Ceremonia, Vive Latino, and Pa’L Norte, make other countries talk about Mexico and those are good news for Mexican tourism,” explains Jiménez.

Ceremonia music festival is one of the many music events that look to earn a place at the top of massive concerts in Mexico, especially in Mexico City because it will move to this city for the first time.

In other editions of Ceremonia, artists like Rosalía, Massive Attack, Julián Casablancas, Snoop Dogg, and Björk have performed.
