  • I went several times and I could never get the best sound. Except Green day that rang 10. The bad thing was that the stage was very low, so in field is not nothing. The silver lining is that easily can be reached.

  • José Amalfitani, headquarters of Club Atlético Vélez Sársfield stadium is the stadium with better view of Argentina. Anywhere in the stadium in that one place can enjoy a perfect view. Strategically located metres from Avenida General Paz, this stadium is in addition to soccer, seat of the Argentine franchise of rugby, the Jaguars and the argentina National Rugby Union team, Los Pumas. It also houses a large number of concerts, so it makes this stage a very visited place. Inside the club, is you can enjoy a coffee in the cafeteria, purchase official merchandise in the store, admire the cups Velez making a great club or walking through the stands, sitting in an armchair and enjoy a great show.
