This is a great acclaimed rock festival that has been produced for a long time in
Argentina, specifically in the province of Córdoba, at the Cosquin beach (therefore its cool name that is already a tradition in the latin rock world).
This festival brings the best hot talents in Latinamerica, without being considered a “hype” event but an event with certain “attitude”.
Now it is being planned that the festival takes place in Chile for the first time but
keeping the same rock sprit surrounded by nature (forests, lagoons and a big concern by the environment) just like in Argentina, for that is what is being commented by part of the organizers according to sources of chilean newspaper www.latercera.com
With regard to Cosquin 2012, which will begin soon (February 10th), the musicians that will perform this year as the main show are Calle 13, (a group with varied musical tendencies and with a left-wing political emphasis).
They have achieved great success in the current latin youth due to their similar interests that are easy to feel identified with to a whole generation.
There will also be local bands such as Las Pastillas del Abuelo and there are expectations for the awaited return of Charly García to the argentinian stages.
Other guest musicians will be: La Vela Puerca (Uruguay), Jauría, Ciro Perusi (Argentina) Hipnotica (Argentina)
We hope that the natural spirit that moves these bands is not lost in the chilean version of this festival and we welcome to the artists that will perform in it.
