Abel Pintos, Tini, Luciano Pereyra Among 300 Artists to Play Billboard Argentina’s 'En La Casa Fest'

Ivan Resnik


The 24 hour online fest begins at midnight tonight (July 8).

More than 300 Argentine artists, including superstars Abel Pintos, Tini, Luciano Pereyra, Los Palmeras and Khea, will perform as part of Billboard Argentina’s online Argentina En La Casa (Argentina at Home) fest.

The festival, which is the first-ever of this scope in the country, will take place over a 24-hour period beginning at midnight today (July 8) through July 9, the day of Argentina’s Declaration of Independence.

It’s produced in collaboration with the Unidxs Por La Música project of SI foundation, and will be streamed on Billboard Argentina’s YouTube channel.

The festival was born from the desire to help a local stricken music community. Argentina has been on a strict lockdown due to Covid-19 since March, and commercial flights to and from the country still have not resumed. All proceeds from the fest will be donated to help workers in the live music industry, including lighting and sound technicians, logistics personnel and other staff involved in producing live shows.

Donations will be received through the Unidxs Por La Música virtual store here. Fans will be able to purchase memorabilia donated by artists and/or make a donation. Everything raised is administered by the SI foundation, which will be in charge of distributing food and basic necessities to families in need.

Established icons such as David Lebón, Sandra Mihanovich, Peteco Carabajal, Kevin Johansen, Javier Malosetti, Auténticos Decadentes and Ráfaga will perform. Plus, look out for new acts from all kind of genres including rock, pop, urban, cumbia, tango and folklore, such as Natalie Pérez, Indios, Bandalos Chinos, Soy Rada, Rodrigo Tapari, Benito Cerati, Emilia Mernes, Omar Varela, Maxi Trusso, Emanero, Sol Pereyra, Ser, Franco Masini and Enrique Campos.

Performers in the bill include artists hailing from all corners of the country. Examples include Los Tekis (Jujuy), Vozenoff (Usuahia), Chule (Pehuajó) and John C (Tucumán), and many more.
