In case you missed it, the lineup for Coachella 2024 is finally out. Almost 20 Latine and Spanish artists were featured in the roster, leaving fans wondering what further surprises they have in store for the massive three-day festival. Like every year, the music festival will take place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA, from April 12 to 14 and April 19 to 21.

Coachella is a place full of surprises. Though we don’t know exactly what our Latine representatives are working on, we know it’s an it place for unexpected, out-of-the-box live collaborations. For example, last year, música mexicana had a moment thanks to two stellar performers. Becky G represented her Mexican-American heritage by inviting collaborators such as Marca MP, Fuerza Regida’s frontman Jesús “JOP” Ortiz Paz, and Peso Pluma (one of this year’s performers). Bad Bunny also invited Grupo Frontera to showcase norteño music to the masses. The Mexican-American band took the stage to perform their hits “No Se Va” and “Bebe Dame” before being joined by the Puerto Rican icon for their joint track “Un x100to.”

With so many Latine and Spanish artists on board this year, what could we expect from our communities’ representatives? Will Peso Pluma bring out his lovebird Nicki Nicole? Will Bizarrap share the stage with artists who have helped him reach his BZRP Music Sessions’ milestones? Will El Conejo Malo make his way to the desert again to sing with his fellow collaborators on stage?

From Shakira to Grupo Yndio, here are the collaborators we’re manifesting to join the Coachella 2024 performers from our communities.

Shakira With Bizarrap

Bizarrap has a full A-list roster of collaborators based on his viral BZRP Music Sessions. From internationally-known artists like Rauw Alejandro to upcoming artists like Milo J, the Argentinean tastemaker has worked with all calibers of artists across various genres. However, this is his first-ever Coachella, which raises the question: who will he invite to join his DJ set? On the top of our list is Shakira – who is not only one of the biggest Latine pop icons – but also one of his most successful collaborators. Shakira and Bizarrap have already graced the stage together on huge television platforms like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the Latin Grammys. Is Coachella their next conquest? Moreover, after Shakira’s alleged Coachella snub, this would undoubtedly take over headlines and social media. 

Expected special guests: Milo J and Nicki Nicole.

Junior H With Peso Pluma

Peso Pluma and Junior H have multiple bangers together. From “El Azul” to “El Tsurito” and, more recently, “Rompe La Dompe,” the duo has proven how well they work together. And based on Mexico’s Top Artists charts, the corridos tumbados stars are well tapped into what their fanbases want: collabs with other popular artists in the genre. Although it’s rare when the two artists perform live together, Coachella would be the perfect occasion to reunite and showcase música mexicana on another level. It would be great to see La Doble P give back to his longtime collaborators at such an important festival, just as Becky G did with him last year, rather than just see him solo. 

Expected special guests: Jasiel Nuñez, Nicki Nicole.

Villano Antillano With Young Miko

It’s Baby Miko! The Puerto Rican rapper is undoubtedly having a moment. From opening Karol G’s stadium tour last year to performing at Coachella this upcoming April, the trap kitty constantly proves she’s a force to reckon with. Her hit songs with Karol G (“DISPO”) and Feid (“CLASSY 101”) have catapulted her fanbase, but let’s not forget her OG collaborators. One of them is the Carribean reggaetonera Villano Antillano, who joined her on the unapologetic “Vendetta” from 2021, a memorable joint track that showcased each rapper’s provocative flows. The two later collaborated on “Besties Remix” with Joyce Santana, YOVNGCHIMI, and Luar La L. Point blank, seeing them both represent Puerto Rican women rappers at Coachella would be epic, to say the least.

Expected special guests: Feid.

Snow Tha Product With Santa Fe Klan

Hear us out: Santa Fe Klan should bring out Snow Tha Product during his upcoming Coachella performances. The two hard-hitting Mexican rappers have collaborated multiple times on songs like “3×4,” “Bájala,” and “Ultimate” with Steve Aoki, showing that they have a knack for producing bangers together. Not only that, the duo has toured together before, and based on Snow’s podcast episode with Santa Fe Klan, they also have great chemistry. What better way to show Mexican’s current state of rappers than with two artists who are helping pave the way for the next generation? What’s more, Snow stans are also commenting on Santa Fe’s Coachella post asking him to invite her, so we’re not the only ones manifesting the reunion!

Expected special guests: Tornillo.

Grupo Yndio With Carin León

Carin León has done so many covers and collaborations in música mexicana and beyond. While we can expect live duets with the likes of Camilo and Grupo Frontera, it would be equally great for him to bring out the OGs. Picture this: León singing “Dame un Beso y Dime Adios” with Grupo Yndio. As someone who grew up listening to Grupo Yndio’s heartfelt covers, both acts would bring nostalgia to multiple generations. Plus, it’d be great to see both artists represent Sonora, Mexico, on stage. Additionally, it would be a way for León to give a major opportunity to golden generation that helped him reach more fans on mainstream radio.

Expected special guests: Camilo, Grupo Frontera.

Daddy Yankee With J Balvin

J Balvin is no stranger to the Coachella desert. In 2018, he joined Cardi B during her Coachella performance with Bad Bunny (Weekend 2) and Beyoncé during her headlining slot (Weekend 2). For his own sets in 2019, he brought out Rosalía and Sean Paul during Weekend 1 and Bad Bunny for Weekend 2. Two years later, he joined Karol G on stage during her performance (Weekend 2). And now we’re ready to see him take the stage again. Looking at his collaborations roster, the Colombian pop star has a hefty list of genres and artists to choose from. However, wouldn’t bringing out the now-retired reggaeton pioneer Daddy Yankee be epic? Let’s not forget that during his Coachella set in 2019, he paid tribute to DY, singing songs like “Gasolina.” It would be a full-circle moment and a nice tribute to a legend.
