Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Mar 25-27)

If you're in Santiago for the long weekend, know that we've got plenty of reasons for you to stick around, from Piknik Electronik (arguably the best up-and-coming music in the city), to a festival celebrating a Chilean adopted favorite dish, to about a dozen different adaptations of "Jesus Christ, Superstar." Not to mention dinner/dance party combos that will have you nostalgic for the 70s. Skip the traffic and go underground!

Remember to check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!

Guerra was mainly known for his various bar murals and his vibrant use of the acclaimed art style naif (naïve), which is distinctive for its simplistic character design and use of vibrant colors. An opening reception will be held on March 23rd.
