2023 Latin Grammys to be held in Seville, Spain
The Latin Recording Academy has confirmed the 2023 Latin Grammys will be held in Seville, Spain.
After it was previously reported that the Latin Grammys would be taking place outside the U.S. for the first time this year, it’s now been confirmed that the 2023 Latin Grammys will take place in Seville, Spain.
The 24th edition of the Latin Grammys will take place at Seville’s Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones on Thursday, November 16.
The start of a three-year partnership
And while this is the first time that the Latin Grammys will take place outside the United States since the first show was held in Los Angeles in the year 2000, it will not be the only time the Latin Grammys will be held in Spain.
The Latin Recording Academy has also announced that they’ve signed a three-year partnership with the Junta de Andalucía, which will sponsor the award show and other events held by the Latin Academy.
“It is an honor to celebrate our Latin GRAMMY Week in Sevilla and commit to our mission of elevating Latin music and its creators around the world,” said Manuel Abud, the CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “We are confident that it will be a memorable celebration.”
Ignacio Meyer, president of U.S. Networks at TelevisaUnivision also expressed his excitement for the partnership.
“We are thrilled to produce the Latin GRAMMYs for the first time this year in Spain, and in a new partnership with the prestigious RTVE,” Meyer said in a press release.
“This is an extraordinary moment for Latin music globally and we are confident that this partnership with RTVE, and the passion and energy that Univision brings to the show, will make history and deliver an unforgettable experience for audiences who love and enjoy music all around the world,” he added.
RTVE and Univision sharing broadcasting duties
“It will be an honor for RTVE to participate in the transmission and production of the 24th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards and we are working hard to accomplish it,” Elena Sánchez Caballero, the president of Radio Televisión Española, said.
“Music is more than an art form, it’s a vehicle that unites us collectively, and we look forward to providing the best possible coverage for our viewers.”
Given the time difference between Spain and where the majority of Latin Grammys viewers live throughout the Americas, the 2023 Latin Grammys will not air live.
Instead, the recorded show will broadcast on Univision at prime time hours after the event has already taken place on November 16 in Seville.
“At 7 in the afternoon (ET) Noche de Estrellas will begin and at 8 the gala starts. What we are not totally clear about is at what time it starts live,” Meyer said at a press conference.
The final list of nominees will be released on Tuesday, September 19. And leading up to the award show, voting will take place between July 27 to August 7, with the final round occurring between September 29 to October 23.
