Rockin Towards the End of Summer: Buenos Aires hosts top rock groups and artists

Roger Waters in Argentina: Buenos Aires Tourism

If you’ve read a few of our previous posts, you’ll know that Buenos Aires is a hotbed of live music.  And this summer has proven to be no exception.  Two giants of British rock have graced BA with performances within a week of each other.

Just last Sunday, the enigmatic Morrissey (internationally loved signer and former front man of The Smiths) performed for a packed audience at Palermo’s Club GEBA rugby arena.  Four days later Roger Waters (former front man for the genre-defining Pink Floyd) took the stage at River Plate Stadium for the first of 9 shows that will continue this week.  Those who attended Waters’ initial show were wowed by the combination of pyrotechnics, enormous props and theatrics that made up the live rendition of his rock opera “The Wall”.  Waters will perform throughout this month, giving his last performance on March 20th.

However, it doesn’t stop there.

The music continues April 3rd when River Plate stadium hosts a rock extravaganza made up of some of today’s most popular groups.  Qulimes Rock Festival will feature two headliners, The Foo Fighters and The Artic Monkeys, and an all-star line of opening bands, including MGMT, TV on the Radio, Band of Horses, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and many others.  The festival will last for four nights.

Don’t let the rock emphasis fool you, however.  Buenos Aires enjoys a vast mix of music, from rock to reggaeton to electronica to more traditional styles such as Tango and Salsa.  In fact, it is not uncommon to meet porteños who passionately listen to all of these styles.  Often bars or clubs dedicate multiple nights throughout the week to playing different genres of music.  Whatever your musical preferences are, you can find your taste of music in Buenos Aires, and not to mention, discover new styles to love.

 

Warm weather is back in town!

Spend a great summertime in Buenos Aires

Apartments and Tourism in Buenos Aires

The summer heat has returned to Buenos Aires!  And with it the streets, bars, parks, and nightlife have sprung back to life with renewed fervor.  The city is packed with tourists and porteños enjoying the summer sun and Buenos Aires’s beautiful sites.  Simply put, this is one of the best times to visit Buenos Aires!

It has already been a busy year with numerous concerts, international events, and festivals.  With the coming summer months, Buenos Aires will reach a peak of activity.

Not surprisingly, the availability of vacation rentals decreases from November to February due to the increase of tourists in the city.  In fact, during the holiday season at the end of December the city reaches close to 100% occupancy, making it extremely difficult to secure a temporary apartment in Buenos Aires.
