The Pop Festival

The Pop Festival is coming to Buenos Aires on March 5, 2011 featuring Shakira and Ziggy Marley. They have been advertising this festival for months, but since I am not much of a Shakira fan, I haven’t paid much attention to it.

However, I just found out that one of my favorite bands, Vampire Weekend, is opening the festival with a performance on February 5, 2011 at the Recoleta Cultural Center.This is a great, small venue and a perfect place to see them.

Tickets are on sale now at TuEntrada.com.


Personal Fest 2011

UPDATE: These were just rumors! The new lineup for Personal Fest 2011 has been announced!

There are lots of rumors swirling around about Personal Fest 2011 in Buenos Aires February 26-27, 2011. Now, if these rumors are to be believed, the line-up looks amazing:

  • Gorillaz
  • Vampire Weekend
  • The Strokes
  • Arcade Fire
  • Sonic Youth
  • Marina and the Diamonds
  • LCD Soundsystem
  • Paramore

The only problem with this is that there has been no official confirmation of Personal Fest 2011. In fact, their web site has not been updated since 2009. None of the band web site mention these date either.

However, there is hope, as many of the bands are playing the festival circuit and some of those dates are in South America. So, I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
