Pro Tip: Check out our full list of 2016 Billboard Latin Music Award nominees & performers on tour.

Enrique Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias is the King of Latin Pop, so it’s no surprise he received his fifth nomination for Artist of the Year. Fans can’t wait to see him play his hot new single “El Perdon” and countless others when he headlines the annual KTUphoria bash at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY on June 4.

La Séptima Banda

The 17-piece La Séptima Banda received their first nomination for their fresh take on the traditional banda sound—and now fans can catch their lively brass section and marching rhythms at the Fiestas Del Mar concert at the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach, CA on May 1.


Pitbull pumps up the jams for fans in concert, and his work on the Love and Sex Tour with Enrique Iglesias last year left everyone wanting more. Good news: Mr. 305 is taking his mad skills and larger-than-life show to excited fans at KTUphoria on June 4.


Often called the U2 of Rock en Español, Maná is gunning for their 15th Billboard Latin Music Award for the album Cama Incendiada. They’re hitting the road on the Latino Power Tour 2016, and fans across North America can’t wait to watch them tear it up as they perform their countless classics.

Jennifer Lopez

After seeing her stunning Vegas residency All I Have, we’re betting Jennifer Lopez takes home the award for Hot Latin Songs Female Artist of the Year. And lucky for you, there are still plenty of chances to see her sensational show yourself at the AXIS at Planet Hollywood. Her reign runs through December.

Justin Bieber

Ok, ok—we know Bieber isn’t a Latin music star, but he is nominated for Crossover Artist of the Year thanks to the Latino remix of “Sorry”, which features a verse en español by rising reggaeton star J Balvin (Balvion’s single “Ginza” is also up for Hot Latin Song of the Year). Fans can get down with Bieber’s tropical new sound on his massive Purpose World Tour, which hits select cities across North America through July.
