News: J Balvin Announces Sydney & Melbourne Headline Shows

J Balvin

Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring have announced that J Balvin, will hit Australia for two two headline shows at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena on Sunday 23 July, followed by Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Tuesday 25 July.

Tickets for both cities go on sale Monday 8 May (10am local time) via Frontier Touring. Frontier Members can get early access via the Presale, which starts Thursday 4 May (12pm local time – see website for more info). Balvin will jumpstart his Australian visit with a set at Byron’s Splendour in the Grass. ​

Noted for his phenomenal, high energy live concerts, the boundary-pushing Balvin made history back in 2019 as the very first Latin headliner in Lollapalooza’s 28-year history. He did similar at Coachella, returning to the desert event (following Beyoncé inviting him up onstage the previous year) for a performance heralded by Billboard as “the most high-profile set from a reggaeton artist in the festival’s history”.

‘His set was a monumental achievement – one of the greatest Coachella has ever seen … and yes, that includes Beyoncé’


As a Latinx artist Balvin has steadfastly broken cultural barriers and become one of the Top 10 most-streamed artists globally, developing legions of fans worldwide. Originally hailing from Medellín, Colombia, the illustrious reggaeton superstar is one of the best-selling Latin musical artists with sales of more than 35 million records.
