«Next week there is another huge festival of reggaeton and urban music and what we offer culturally is rock, it is a genre that has been loved, beaten, fought, but I think that many of these bands are representatives of the counterculture of what at some point represented rock.
On this occasion, the festival that was born with 100 percent metal artists, now opens up to other rock genres and subgenres with which metal shares a “do-it-yourself” philosophy of playing authentic and genuine music.
