Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (May 22 - 24)

Surprise surprise - another long weekend in Santiago! Well this time it really seems like everyone headed out of the city because the number of events dropped quite a bit. But no worries- we found plenty of things to keep you busy this weekend if you've decided to stay in the city. A couple of film festivals, a major dance competition, live music from everyone from gypsy-cumbia party band Banda Conmocion to Silvio Rodriguez to an Andean band, plenty of theater and dance performances, DJ parties and more.

Remember every Friday we'll post our picks for the weekend and please check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!
