Rock al Parque
Colombia's Top Free Music Festival
If you're in Bogota in mid-August, then check out Rock al Parque, which is a free three-day music festival that attracts some 88,0000 people each day and is the largest of its kind in Colombia. . They come to watch concerts by some of Latin America's top artists, as well as performances from international groups. Genres are varied, ranging from hardcore to rock, ska to punk. The festival isn't exactly new, it's been ongoing since 1995, but with Bogata's re-emergence as a hot travel destination, it's gaining more international recognition and is a great event to discover new Latin talent.
