This year’s Summer Reggaeton Fest was tipped to be the hottest event of the year and it did not disappoint, with an 8,000+ strong crowd of Reggeaton lovers and Latinos packed into London’s Wembley SSE Arena helping to create an atmosphere that Daddy Yankee himself congratulated. As the public poured in, the supporting DJ’s set the tone for what was to be an amazing night of Summer Reggeaton music, from old-school to the latest hits. After much anticipation, Ozuna came out and did himself justice with an energetic and passionate performance of his biggest hits such as Te Vas, La Occasion, Dile Que Tu Me Quieres, and much more.
His performance had barely ended before the crowd were treated to the main event, King Daddy. Word-for-word the crowd loudly sang and enthusiastically danced along to every song and after having not visited London for almost 7 years; Daddy Yankee rewarded his fans with an array of classics and some of his latest hits, from “Lo quepaso” to “Gasolina” but the night was not to be complete until he performed his number 1 hit Despacito; with the crowd roaring and singing so loudly that Daddy Yankee himself gave them all a massive thank you.
A massive shout out to the event organisers: DJ Khriz, John Valencia, William Apunte and many others, for putting on what was truly an unforgettable night. We look forward to covering 2018’s Summer Reggaeton Fest.
