Kick-start the festivities with one of one of the world’s most legendary party bands: the Grammy Award-winning Venezuelan group Los Amigos Invisibles.
With twelve critically-acclaimed albums under their belts, a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album, plus an impressive five Grammy nominations (Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album, and Best Latin Pop, Rock or Urban Album), Los Amigos Invisibles (“the invisible friends”) have been trailblazers of hybrid Latin dance music for nearly twenty years. Starting out as a group of boyhood friends from Caracas, they have steadily built up an international legion of devoted fans, swept up by their energetic combination of groovy funk, driving Latin rhythms and big city beats.
Having been described as the “global joyride of the year,” the band are renowned for their explosive live shows, which have taken them across the globe to nearly 60 countries. Fans include Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, who signed them onto his Luaka Bop label.
