The LA-based, one-day Latin music festival Calibash made its Las Vegas debut last year at T-Mobile Arena, headlined by Strip headliner Ricky Martin. For this weekend’s second edition, another big Vegas name joins Martin at the top of the bill: Jennifer Lopez, whose All I Have residency production at the Axis at Planet Hollywood will wrap up in September.

There’s plenty of power on the Calibash bill beyond those two superstars. Fresh off a live performance to close the Dolce & Gabbana show during Milan Fashion Week, Maluma returns to the Strip, where he recently wowed the Latin Grammy crowd. The Colombian hitmaker already has another Vegas gig set for May 5 at Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Ditto for Bad Bunny. The San Juan-born Latin trap and reggaeton innovator just landed a solo show at the Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan, slated for March 10. Bunny is one of the fastest-rising stars in his genre, and the same can be said for his fellow reggaeton Calibash acts Farruko and Ozuna.

With household names and breaking stars joining forces, Saturday night promises to bring one epic concert. Calibash Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena, January 27.
