A Universal Music Group label drew attention to a "milestone" in Latin music on Friday, highlighting the fifth straight sellout last weekend for  an annual concert in Los Angeles featuring artists from the "forbidden" and "applauded" corrido genre.

Universal Music Latin Entertainment-GTS, UMLE's booking and management division, noted Friday that last weekend's "La Invasion del Corrido V" at the Gibson Amiptheatre, which seats over 6,000, sold out ten days in advance.

The concert organizers were UMLE-GTS, Orjuela Entertainment Inc, and local stations La Que Buena 105.5 & 94.3 FFM. The stations target Hispanics ages 18-34 with regional Mexican music
