On the day we are thrilled to welcome two international music acts

We also welcome ‘Ortiga’ from Spain… As one half of Spanish hit act, ‘Esteban & Manuel’- this new solo project combining pop, cumbia, salsa and electronic Merengue is made for the dancefloor!

7 hours of entertainment

Alongside headliners La Inedita and Ortiga we also have jam packed support from:

Son Yambu – with Cuban Son and Salsa vibes
Mestiza – with Andean and traditional Latin American compositions

Leeds Samba – with authentic Brazilian Samba and carnival drumming
Dance Emporium Salsa – a group performance from new Salseros!

And not forgetting the best Latin DJs in the North with DJ Fabio, Lubi and Chris Welch – spinning the tunes between all the acts throughout the day!
