Calibash 2016 blew the roof off of the STAPLES Center
By: José Angel Torres for Becky Boricua
The annual concert, offered by the Los Angeles radio station MEGA 96.3FM, has a reputation for gathering the who’s who of Latin Urban artists, the hottest up-and-comers, and established musical icons all under one roof – the 2016 edition definitely wasn’t the exception.
In fact, many would say this is the best one to date thanks performances from the likes of Prince Royce, Nicky Jam, Plan B, Yandel, Farruko, Becky G, J Alvarez, Lil Jon, Justin Quiles, Zion & Lennox, Henry Santos, and Snoop Dogg. The star-studded lineup not withstanding, the biggest applause and praise went to Justin Bieber during his surprise guest-performance of Sorry (Latino Remix) alongside J Balvin.
Calibash 2016 has not only set the bar higher for next year’s edition, it has also set the standard for all other LA-based radio station concerts for the rest of the year.
