  • This year, it was the first time that I attended this famous festival, which takes place every year in the vast Parque O'Higgins specific the reason of my visit: Metallica; It was clear that he could not miss the opportunity to see one of the larger world of Trash Metal bands. The festival has a very good organization, where each Stage or stage corresponds to a specific artist. The Stages that most impressed me were those of the Movistar Arena. Also, enjoyed the festival, varied and colorful decoration. The festival was loaded with "Wave Pópera" so before entering, had doubts, nervousness and fear, to which the public was fome and without power. But it turned out to be quite the opposite... The people the full yield, desgarrandose voice chanting songs of Metallica, and hypnotized "Mosheando" to the beat of the music. Best of all was that at the end of the concert, guitarist pulled his finger and I managed to grab it! But still, not only enjoyed the music of Metallica, also gave it everything in Weichafe and the DJ's electro (Alok, Don Diablo, Etc). No doubt it was a beautiful experience and some memories will be more beautiful that I will have. A greeting!

  • The Park is well maintained and made up a picnic. Easy to take the subway, getting off at the station of the same name. On the site there is the Museum of natural history and a lady with a llama all colorful (do not lose the opportunity and take a picture). If you have a little more time in Santiago, worth, but it's not a must. Travel in August/14.
