“Sueños, named after the Spanish word for dreams, drew a wide spectrum from Chicago’s Latino community. Whether the music featured hard-driving beats from the Dominican Republic or accordion melodies from Mexico, the crowd — with groups of friends, family members, singles and couples, all mostly under age 40 — seemed to know every word to the songs.”The Chicago Tribune

“…the joy and enthusiasm among fans was unmistakable. There is something very exciting about reggaetón and Latin trap—genres that have become global sensations over the last few years—being blasted throughout downtown Chicago. You don’t need to understand Spanish to feel the passion and pride of all the music showcased at Sueños.”Chicago Sun Times


Home to one of the largest Hispanic populations of any city in the U.S., Chicago deserves a Latin Music festival that makes its community proud. During its inaugural weekend, Sueños Festival proved that it has the potential to be an institution in Chicago, and a premier destination for Latin talent for years to come.

The final day of the first-ever Sueños brought bright stars, beautiful weather, and immaculate vibes, playing host to twelve hours of non-stop Latin Music and Reggaeton. J Balvin capped the night with a stunning performance, making the most out of his only U.S. set of 2022. Making a marquee stop on their final tour (“La Última Misión”), Reggaeton legends Wisin Y Yandel brought down the house with hits from their decades-long career. Ascendant superstars like Jhayco and Sech demonstrated the talent and musicality that helps them stand apart, Fuerza Regida brought regional Mexican flair, rising stars like Lyanno and La Gabi showed why they were next up, and Chicago-based DJ Miriam put on for her city with the first performance of the day. Between sets, the official Sueños DJ, DJ Fredy Fresco, spun classics from all eras of Reggaeton, uniting the audience under the banner of Perreo.

Nestled in picturesque Grant Park in the heart of downtown Chicago, Sueños Music Festival celebrates the success of its inaugural event, and plans many more great years ahead in the Windy City.
