Glasto Latino is the festival’s very own portal to Latin America – full of the sights, sounds and smells of the region where rhythm, colour, movement and passion take centre stage. Situated at the entrance to the South-East (aka Naughty) Corner (between Block9 and The Common), a big decorated tent with stage and dance floor, surrounded by Latin stalls and the famous Latino Beat bar.
Every night after the main stages finish, we put on a major international act: past highlights have included legendary singer Mayito Rivera with his band, the Sons of Cuba; African superstar Ricardo Lemvo; Salsa Celtica, the Scottish ensemble that sells out in Colombia; virtuosos Edwin Sanz and Roberto Pla on percussion, Alex Wilson on keyboards, and many, many more… our quality has been recognised with wins for the last two years at the LUKAS Latin-UK awards
In the daytime we offer free dance classes,with some of the UK’s leading teachers, where you can learn salsa, tango, merengue, bachata, reggaetón and more – these are more and more popular every year.
We also open before the main stages – up to now, with a steaming live music party on the Thursday night, but we may be extending this – watch this space – news and full line-up coming soon!
