SOM Festival Castelló is unstoppable and continues to expand its line-up. To date the confirmed acts are Manuel Carrasco, El Barrio, Morad and RVFV, Juanito Makandé, God Save The Queen, Billy Boom Band and Insolits at SOM Family, the humor of Juan Amodeo and Niña Pastori. An unparalleled schedule to which now add Melendi who will perform on August 21st.
Melendi is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the contemporary music scene. His hits, which are now absolute anthems, are part of the recent history of Spanish music. This is demonstrated by the fact that they are sung by the crowd at large concerts. His unique way of transmitting feelings and everyday situations together with his undeniable charisma and his constant evolution have appealed to people of all generations. A milestone that few artists have reached and that has allowed him to develop the extraordinary connection with the audience which he is known so well for.
A quick glance at numbers confirms his overwhelming and sustained success over time. 4,000 million views on YouTube and Spotify, more than 10 million followers on social networks, 28 platinum albums, 6 gold and a Latin Grammy nomination. It is not surprising therefore that he accumulates hundreds of sold out events in the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala and Spain.
After almost 20 years of career, millions of witnesses to his spectacular live show and thousands of reproductions on digital platforms, Melendi is at his best. And we can’t wait to see him at SOM on Saturday, August 21st.
