One of the most important music festivals in the country returns with a line up of more than 50 national and international artists who will meet at the Parque Norte in Medellín on February 19.
Three hundred and thirty-four days have passed since the last time that music lovers were dancing under the light of La Solar, one of the most important festivals in the country, which has been held in Medellín for 8 years. The last night was February 15, 2020, the year in which the pandemic arrived and for which the parties and dancing stopped.
“We are happy to bring all the joy and music festival back to Medellín this February 19 at Parque Norte. After experiencing such hard times, with La Solar we want to celebrate life and that is why we bring a forceful and renewed line up that embodies the urban spirit of the city and the alternative electronic spectrum that characterizes Breakfast Club, where we continue betting on the new rhythms such as trap and neo-perreo in a poster that you will see for the first time in Medellín”, explained Frankie, creative director of Breakfast.
La Solar has brought more than 400 national and international artists throughout its more than 15 editions to Medellín.
Among its main artists, La Solar announces the participation of Rauw Alejandro, a leading artist who has made a name for himself breaking schemes and bringing influences from R&B and dancehall to the worlds of rap and reggaeton.
