Festival Estereo Picnic

Held annually in the Colombian capital; Bogota, Festival Estereo Picnic is one of the most happening festivals in Colombia. It is an immense multi-genre music fest that takes place each year around the months of March or April. This year, it will take place onwards from April 5, Friday. 2019’s diverse line-up includes top of the bill performers like Kendrick Lamar, Tiesto, Arctic Monkeys, Twenty One Pilots, Underworld, Foals, and many more. Though, these are not the only performers. Talent from all across Latin America and Colombia will join them. This is a festival that you need to experience at least once in your lifetime.


Lollapalooza is a global event that is going to be taking place at many locations this year as well. Catch the top DJ’s, pop singers, hip hop artists, RnB and EDM producers making some of the most famous moments of history. Happening at Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, you get four days of ultimate fun and musical entertainment that will get you out of your tedious routines and jolt you back to the moment. Heavy metal, punk rock, and alternative rock artists are standard at the festival, but this time, non-profits and political groups are being given the stage to present some of the not-so-mainstream but still crazy-as-hell music to the crowd.

Rock in Rio

Rio De Janeiro’s pride and joy, the Rock in Rio festival is one of the events that has escalated to a level far and wide across the world. It is now happening even in Lisbon, Madrid and Las Vegas. Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, No Doubt, Metallica and even John Legend have made a heavy show at Rock in Rio for the crowd. It really depends on what you’re in the mood of because Rock in Rio is going to be offering a specifically large range of bands and performances spread out across various genres. Who knows? Maybe you can even catch a spontaneous duo or collaborative performance.

You might want to keep a check on you and your friends in such a large crowd. Make plans with your friends to make it in time for these huge events that are going to be historic. Make sure you have all the possible precautionary measures, and you can even track cell phone locations to keep track of your friends because getting lost is very easy in concerts like these.
