Know Before You Go: Santiago de Chile’s Festival En Órbita

Read more

Festival En Órbita will be taking over Santiago de Chile to kickstart Latin American festivals for 2016. With a stellar lineup of psych rock – of local, international and legendary varieties – it’s hard to resist.

In addition to all the artists playing the fest, En Órbita will host a conference with music biz insiders active in today’s international scene. Panels will focus on management, record labels, music journalism and festivals. Among the highlights of the cycle are a Q&A featuring psych rock legends Sérgio Dias of Os Mutantes and Mario Mutis of Los Jaivas, and another event with Barry Hogan of global festival network All Tomorrow’s Parties (talking about what he knows best.)
