Last September, Rock in Rio festival held seven days of music, selling 700,000 tickets and grossing about 460 million dollars for the city, according to figures provided by Medina.
He added “From my point of view, Argentina is the most rock country in Latin America, with strong groups that give concerts for 60,000 or 70,000 people”.
The festival is coming to the City of Buenos Aires in late September, just days after the conclusion of its edition in Brazil.
