The Colombian reggaeton star is set to hit Australia for two huge headlining shows in Melbourne and Sydney this July.

Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring have today announced that Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin is set to hit Australia for two huge headlining shows in Melbourne and Sydney this July, following a performance at Byron’s Splendour in the Grass.

Originally hailing from Medellín, Colombia, Balvint is one of the best-selling Latin musical artists with sales of more than 35 million records, and the singer's 2017 chart-topper Mi Gente with Willy William, and subsequently, a remix with Beyoncé reached global success serving as a nod to cultural pride. 

Noted for his phenomenal, high-energy live concerts, Balvin made history back in 2019 as the first Latin headliner in Lollapalooza's 28-year history. He did the same at Coachella, returning to the desert event (following Beyoncé inviting him up onstage the previous year) for an epic performance that was widely praised.

His accolades don't end there; he's also collaborated with some of music's biggest names, including Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, Cardi B, Ed Sheeran, Skrillex, and Pharrell, and in 2020, he became the first Latinx artist to team up with the iconic Air Jordan brand. 

Balvin will be performing at Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena on Sunday 23 July and Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on Tuesday 25 July. Tickets for both cities go on sale on Monday 8 May via frontiertouring.com/jbalvin, with Frontier Members able to access the Presale starting Thursday 4 May.
