MegaRumba – Celebra TU Independencia 2018
For the past couple of years, South Florida has celebrated Colombian Independence Day at MegaRumba Colombia. SWARM and iHeart’s Tu 94.9 have revamped the festivity into an all-encompassing celebration with a broader reason to celebrate at MegaRumba: Celebra TU Independencia. This coming July 20th, celebrate YOUR culture at the all-day event in Wynwood — Miami’s most culturally dynamic neighborhood.
For the first time ever in the U.S., Danny Ocean will perform “Me Rehuso” at MegaRumba. Also performing live is Sofia Reyes, winner of an MTV Millennial, Latin Grammy and iHeart Media Award, as well as Grammy and Latin Grammy nominated bilingual Latin band, Locos Por Juana. Venezuelan singer/actor Victor Drijo and Nicole Favre will also join iHeart radio’s ever-popular DJ’s on center stage. In addition, there will be food trucks, arts & craft vendors, and several fully stocked bars, offering everything from the best of Bud Light and mixed drinks to specialty flavored mojitos by Cruzan.
Also new this year, MegaRumba will be partnering with Cuatro Por Venezuela, a Non-Profit Organization providing educational, medical, and nutritional aid to Venezuelans in need. As Venezuela is under a profound humanitarian crisis – WE want to help do something about it, and now you can too! Join us for this cause and donate to help purchase medicine for Venezuela’s transplanted patients. The $10 Donation Ticket includes a FREE Bud Light and a shot ($19 value). 100% of proceeds from donation ticket will go directly to the Cuatro Por Venezuela Foundation. (www.CuatroPorVenezuela.com)
In the past, organizers have brought Latin Billboard winners including Maluma, Grupo Niche, Jorge Celedón, Reykon, ChoquibTown, Victor Manuel, Los 5, Locos Por Juana, Marlow Rosado, and Play N Skillz. The free festival will run from 7 PM to 3 AM. It will focus on South Florida’s rich and vibrant melting pot, with special attention to its deep musical influences. People can expect to see activities for all ages throughout the day with programming moving into a full-blown concert as the day progresses. Handpicked art/craft vendors and food trucks will be available until the very end, offering a little bit of everything that makes South Florida so unique and tasty. Must be 21+ to drink.
