Sauce Boyz Fest: A Game Changer for Latin Trap Music, Thanks to Eladio Carrión
At Sauce Boyz Fest, Eladio Carrión proved he’s not just the Puerto Rican prince of Latin Trap — he’s the king. Commanding a crowd of 30,000, he curated an eclectic roster of international stars and local talents, including Wiz Khalifa, Bizarrap, and Duki. But the real showstopper? The unexpected cameos from A-listers like Bad Bunny and Lil Wayne, and their electric performances amplified the crowd’s energy to new levels.
Day one kicked off at Cervecera de Puerto Rico with the fresh beats of emerging acts such as Young Miko and Tokischa. As night fell, Carrión, the mastermind himself, shook the stage, climaxing with a surprise Bad Bunny performance of their chart-topping hit “Coco Chanel.” The fans went wild, their cheers echoing in the cool Caribbean night.
The next day’s lineup was equally impressive. While Moffa and paopao set the stage on fire in La H Tent, Rafa Pabón, Brray & Joyce Santana, and Luar la L captivated the Sauce Stage crowd. American rap legend Wiz Khalifa had fans rapping along to his iconic anthems, a testament to the international appeal of Sauce Boyz Fest.
But Carrión was determined to up the ante. His performance—energetic and passionate—was a musical tour de force. Classics meshed with new hits like “Mbappe,” creating a rich tapestry of beats and rhymes. And the cherry on top? More surprise guests, including Lil Wayne, who delivered a rousing rendition of “A Mili,” and Rich The Kid and Fivio Foreign who joined for “Peso a Peso” and “M3.”
Following his SXSW and Coachella triumphs and the successful launch of his US tour, Eladio is truly setting the pace for Latin Trap. With the recent success of his album, “3MEN2 KBRN,” Eladio is sailing smoothly through the first leg of his tour, celebrating his ascension to the throne of Latin music royalty. With Sauce Boyz Fest, Eladio didn’t just host a festival—he made a statement: He’s here, he’s loud, and he’s just getting started.
