Today we celebrate the 'Colombia Rock Day', an event in which for, the first time in history, will meet for more than 12 hours, 30 of the best rock bands in the country, which, on two platforms, will give the biggest in honor of rock.
Although Colombia is traditionally a tropical country, making rock isn’t as simple as it sounds. However, many bands and artists have achieved to overcome the time and sounds that predominate in the country, to show the music they love the most, rock. The day has come to pay tribute to all of them, for years and even decades making their contribution to this genre and enriching the music that is made there.
The list of artists is headed by historical bands of national rock like La Pestilencia, which last year celebrated three decades of rock. To them is added Estados Alterados, the group that since 1987 took the first steps in the mix of electronic and rock sounds in the country.
The city of Cali will be represented by Superlitio, which is about to celebrate 20 years of work, developing different sounds with a very personal seal. Another historical grouping will be '1280 Almas', a band that since 1992 makes strong rock and also the only group that has openly renounced to participate in 'Rock al Parque', one of the most important rock festivals in Latin America.
Of course, there will not only be bands that started rock in Colombia, there is also space for new sounds that aspire to make history with their music in the country.
The event will be held today at the 'North Motorway Event Center', on the outskirts of Bogota, will start at 11:00 am and will go until, approximately, 3:00 a.m. of the following day. A day completely dedicated to rock.
