Nearly 65,000 people attended the Retumba Caracas 2022 Festival in Plaza Venezuela, where only 80% of those present were women, highlighted the head of government, Nahum Fernandez.
“We will meet with the chief admiral, Carmen Meléndez, on Saturday, December 31 in Bolívar Square to receive the new year,” said Fernández from the stage located in the Rental Zone.
He thanked the President of the Republic, Nicolas Maduro, who approved the resources to make the six concerts possible. “In Antímano it was one of the great concerts, also an event that we held for the salsa people in the parish of 23 de Enero”.
