  • Marillion Weekend Chile 2017: Since its tentative trial run in 2002, the Marillion Weekend has enjoyed huge success across a number of countries and continents, and this time the three-day events makes its way over to Santiago. The main men of the hour, and indeed the entire weekend, will be the progressive rock band Marillion, the eponymous musicians and masterminds behind this infamous annual event. They will be joined on stage by a plethora of musicians and have hinted at various surprises up their sleeves (there may well even be a chance for a lucky fan to get on stage themselves). Each night promises to serve up a unique set, so that even if you go all three concerts in a row, while you might be struck with a little déja vu, you'll have experienced three both wild and wildly different nights. ^top

  • Miss Garrison: Friday night's your chance to take a post-punk-electro journey with Miss Garrison before they head off on tour through Mexico and Europe. They were invited to SXSW last year and are a definite best-bet if you're looking for gems in the Santiago music scene.

  • De Monaco + Hot Nanas: They hold their keyboards like guitars, their standard stage uniform consists of snapbacks and circular sunglasses and perhaps most importantly, they're called Hot Nanas. Get your shoulders popping and head nodding this Friday night to the electric sound of this eclectic duo and the hypnotic beats of De Monaco, who will be joining them on the stage this weekend. And if you're not already sold, it might be worth mentioning the open bar serving Heinekens until 00:30 (or until stocks last). We'll race you to the bar at 00:29. ^top

  • Mambo Mestizo: Get your feet stomping to balkan beats and hips swaying to salsa rhythms this Friday night at Raices Bar, where the bands La Mano Ajena and Tropicson will be sending shockwaves through the speakers late into the night. With tickets going for only 3.000, and an additional offer of two tickets for 5.000 before midnight, you've got no excuse to stay in watching Netflix this Friday. So turn off the tv, get your most comfortable shoes on and get your heartrate racing. ^top

  • Fiction + Imaginary Noise: Although the names Imaginary Noise and Fiction might make you think these bands are in fact non-existent, we promise you that not only are both of these rock bands very much real, but they can also be the soundtrack to your Friday night. Head over to Goodstock Bar for this fundraising night in order to not only have the chance to listen to the two bands live, but also to assess whether the stock at this bar is as good as it proudly proclaims.^top

  • Denver: Denver, the national treasures with international renown, will be right around the corner in Recoleta this weekend, taking to the stage at Bar Loreto on Friday night. Kicking off at 11pm and going on into the early hours of the morning, hear the well-known and much-loved duo play their signature indie pop hits, as well as a number of DJ sets who are bound to keep your spirits high and the bass low.^top
