Red Bull Music Festival New York returns this May for a sixth year with another diverse program of original events, world premieres, and talks with icons and innovators. The festival’s Hasta Abajo (Get Down) event, a high-voltage tribute to tropical urban sound, has added Reggaetón royalty Ivy Queen to a bill that spotlights the impact of genre pioneers and the new wave of Latinx culture shifters.
Over the last two decades, Reggaetón has become a globally dominating genre that increasingly delivers record-smashing impact on music sales, streams and pop-culture influence. Hasta Abajo features Reggaetón trailblazers Ivy Queen, DJ Nelson, Ranking Stone, Alberto Stylee, Wiso G, and DJ Negro, performing as The Noise, the group who helped blaze the pathway for the genre’s international trajectory from the barrios of Puerto Rico to the world.
Also performing is industry legend DJ Lobo, and rising música urbana stars, Riobamba and Rosa Pistola, two artists who are leading Reggaetón’s evolution from the streets of Brooklyn and Mexico City, respectively. The event takes place Saturday, May 19th at Uptown Manhattan’s famed Latino nightlife hub, La Marina.
All the proceeds from the event’s ticket sales will be donated to Rock Steady For Life, a relief campaign started by legendary New York breakdancer Richard Colón (aka Crazy Legs) dedicated to helping the people of Puerto Rico in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria – and beyond.
The partnership will be a continuation of Legs’ commitment to mobilizing artists of the Puerto Rican diaspora to raise funds and support on-the-ground efforts on the island by working actively with organizations like El Departmento De La Comida, MPOWERD, Off-The-Grid Missions, and Waves For Water. There is no better way to honor Reggaeton’s Puerto Rican roots than to make this event not only a celebration of the island’s cultural impact but also an opportunity to mobilize the diaspora and help give back in a time of need.
Tickets are available now on TicketWeb.

The song comes on the heels of Black Buffet dropping the Pusha Tfeatured and Nottz produced project that earned attention on a host of sites including,
“The way the project went I got a few solid joints on both projects and the album is dope. I just want to stay relevant with the visuals,” Black Buffet said. “Im just trying to keep pushing man, Por Siempre that means forever, so thats a testament to my hustle. I’m working on another project with different kinds of stuff and the instrumentation is totally different from before. Me and Nottz, we pretty much have a full album.
Rapper 24Heavy recently released the video for his song “Safe Mode” featuring Quality Control’s Kollision, which is taken from his mixtape Heavy World.
It’s been well documented that Atlanta is known for breaking new artists. Despite breaking a new act seemingly every year, the machine keeps churning out new acts that set trends across the world of Hip-Hop.
Enter rapper 24Heavy who has watched the scenes in ATL change over the course of his life and was highly influenced by the Hip-Hop culture thriving in his back yard while growing up in West Side Vine City AKA the The Bluff.
In fact, 24Heavy grew up hanging around YFN Lucci, Ralo, Joe Gifted, Young Scooter, Nick Grant, and 21 Savage as a youth and still remembers recording some of his early material over at YFN Lucci’s house.
Now following a 6-year legal set back, 24Heavy is keeping the music coming with the release of his first mixtape entitled Heavy World. Making moves under the umbrella of Atlanta’s rising independent label Never Eat Alone Entertainment, 24Heavy started building his buzz with the release of his single “Sacrifices” which started gaining traction in the streets of Atlanta.
The single features heavy 808s and trap drums and was inspired by personal life situations.
“My music word for word is what happened in my personal life,” 24Heavy said. “I would say I’m an artist who is able to express myself through my music and I share the pain and real life situations I’ve been through.
