Festival de Viña del Mar
During the month of February, the Vina del Mar International Song Festival has been held each year since 1970, lasting all of six days. The venue for this major event is the Quinta Vergara amphitheater, and it is organized in three parts: the first is the international competition, which traditionally has around ten countries taking part; then there is the folk section, with performers coming from all over Chile; and finally the international show, sprinkled with Latin stars, and the ever-hopefuls who wish to win over the demanding audience, collectively referred to as the "monster." See their website for further details.
The Viña del Mar music festival is awesome! Last year they brought Bryan Adams and this year Nelly Furtado, I plan on going to next years festival also...word around Chile is that Bon Jovi might come... you never know! But, you must book reservations in advance cause durring feb. (last week or so) is when the festival is and rooms are SOLD OUT! It lasts 5 days and totally worth it.. viña gets packed and theres tons to see and do!

this was particularly groovy and filled with a fantastic variety of musical styles, genres, artists, etc.
los tres rocked the place like never before, others liked the performance by that one dude who sings those vegas-style songs...what's his name? Tom Jones.
Then there was some sweet stuff on some other days. Oh, and Ricky Martin did a great job for his style too.
