November 1-3 mark the dates of one of Argentina’s most elaborate and grand festivals, the Quilmes Buenos Aires Rock Festival. For 10 years, Quilmes has sponsored the festival, elevating the city in a craze.
The Buenos Aires Rock Festival is held annually at a number of venues, including the Ferro Stadium and River Plate Stadium. Famous local and international artists performed at the event last year, including Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys and MGMT. Presently, confirmed bands for this year’s Buenos Aires Rock Festival include Ciro y Los Persas on November 1, Blur on November 2 and Tan Bionica on November 3.

Ciro y Los Persas is presenting its latest album to top off its national tour. Since the release of its album, ¨27¨, it has performed eight times at Luna Park, selling out all of its tickets each time.
