The “Livestreaming in an Amazon World” panel is set to take place at Billboard’s Latin Music Week, which returns to Miami with a weeklong (Sept. 20-25) event that unites the top Latin hitmakers, influencers and industry leaders, and features live performances and conversations with superstars.
The conversation, moderated by Cristina Martín, senior artist marketing manager, Amazon Music, will explore how artists are partnering with the platform to create fascinating content and engage with fans. From gaming to livestreams, the panelists — Dimelo Flow, Guaynaa, Erik Bankston, head of branded entertainment, CMN and Joshua Mendez, co-founder/COO, Rich Music — will discuss some of the most exciting launches on the platform and opportunities for fans and artists to engage in unique, meaningful ways.
Other recently announced panels include the “Mano a Mano” with Rauw Alejandro and Myke Towers, during which both chart-topping artists will discuss new projects, upcoming tours and the challenges and advantages for the new wave of reggaetón artists; “Making the Hit, Live” masterclass with Lunay and his longtime producers Chris Jedi and Gaby Music; and the “Coming Out Latin” panel with Raymix, Esteman, Erika Vidrio and Jhonny Caz of Grupo Firme for an insightful and heartfelt conversation on the challenges and rewards of coming out as a Latin music act.
The star-studded 2021 Latin Music Week lineup — headlined by Daddy Yankee, Karol G and Nicky Jam — also includes participation by Anitta, Elena Rose, Natti Natasha, Jhay Cortez, Kany García and Tainy, with more to be announced.
Under the slogan “The Beat of Latin Music,” making its mark as the longest running and biggest Latin music industry gathering in the world, this year’s event will continue through the end of the week as Billboard launches its En Vivo concert series in partnership with Samsung, Amazon Music and Bacardí.
The 2021 Latin Music Week will take place from Sept. 20 to 25 at the Faena Forum in Miami and coincides with the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards broadcasting live via Telemundo on Sept. 23. See the list of finalists here.
