Rock al Parque (Rock in the Park) in Bogotá is the biggest and best annual rock festival in Latin America. Three hundred thousand people squeeze into Parque Simón Bolivar to enjoy the consistently great line-up.
Bogotá's rock fans can enjoy a wide variety of international, national and local bands performing for free. In the weeks leading up to the event, local up-and-coming groups take part in a battle of the bands for the privilege of performing.
The festival began in 1995, attracting around 50,000 fans. Past performers include Manu Chao, inventors of the ska sound The Skatalites, Kinky from Mexico, the rocking Robi Draco Rosa, the masters of Colombian dance music Sidestepper and Andrea Echeverry from Aterciopelados.
