Sing all the songs from Modesty Apart, from Short Celts or the catchy summer hits from She Dances Alone, Dangerous Friends, OBK, Accomplices or Plato.

Three stages and a festival bet for those great songs that made us dance, with special attention to the summer songs that marked an era. Pay attention to the Escenario Playa, where you can hear all those songs that marked an era and are in the memory of several generations. Azúcar Moreno, Los Chunguitos, Viceversa, Los Manolos, Zapato Veloz... In the Dance area, there will be 2 Unlimited, Jenny from Ace of Base, Technotronic, Chimo Bayo or Paco Pil, among others.

2. The biggest event of the year for reggaeton lovers
On June 26th IFEMA, Feria de Madrid will host one of the newest events on the festival calendar in the city: Madrid Puro Reggaeton Festival. Two essential names in this musical style have already confirmed their presence at this unique event. Daddy Yankee, the father of reggaeton, co-creator of the world hit Despacito, will be one of the strongest bets of the festival. Yankee positioned his song Con calma, as the second most listened song in Spotify in 2019. He will also be on the line up Bad Bunny, the most listened to Latin artist on this digital platform, whose song Mía is one of the most important songs in contemporary music of the last decade. Two heavyweights for an event organized by Grupo Hermanos Toro, one of the biggest music promoters in Spain, responsible for Dreambeach, Cabo de Plata or Puro Latino. Without a doubt, this is one of the must-see events on the list of Madrid's festivals for 2020.

4. The great festival of Latin American music of the 21st century
The fourth edition of the Rio Babel Festival at IFEMA, Feria de Madrid, from 2 to 4 July 2020 is very appealing and confirms itself as the essential meeting place for contemporary Latin American music. Resident, the co-founder and vocalist of Calle 13 was one of the first to say "yes" to this event, which shows that the festival continues to bet on urban rhythms and Latin American music. The Spanish rapper Rayden is another name on the line-up, as is the German band Seeed, known for mixing hip-hop with reggae, which will be performing in Madrid for the first time. The Colombian Juanes, the South Africans Die Antwoord or C. Tanganyika promise to make this month of July memorable.
