The Blues und Rock Festival happens in the stunning city of Santiago, capital of Chile. The Teatro Caupolican houses the greatest music festival in Chile.

With a capacity for four thousand five hundred people, it offers an ambience full of thrills and pumping power. The Blues und Rock Festival is proud to be housed by this cultural icon of Santiago.
Located at 850 San Diego Street, Santiago, Region Metropolitana, Chile, it is easy to find.

Google maps offer directions and festival attendees will not have any trouble locating the venue. The Blues und Rock Festival has a short but rich history with this venue, having rocked this house since 2011. The venue has great sight lines for all fans watching the spectacles on stage. Public facilities at the venue are first class.
Overseas visitors flying into Santiago for the Blues und Rock Festival are advised to allow plenty of time for getting into the venue, as traffic is sometimes an issue in Santiago. Visitors are recommended to prepare thoroughly for the festival with plenty of fluids and suitable clothing. June is a cool month in Santiago, so bring coats and a sweater. Once inside the venue you will soon warm up, but entering and exiting the venue will expose visitors to possibly cold conditions. There are, as at most festivals, times when you will be lining up to hand over tickets.
Pickpockets and cutpurses are, unfortunately, prevalent in Santiago; and these nefarious agencies do target large events such as these. Protect your valuables close to your person, so as to prevent theft. The Blues und Rock Festival does have security in place, but cannot always be everywhere at all times due to the size of the event. Festival attendees are advised to take all possible precautions when entering and exiting the festival. Stay vigilant and you will not fall prey to these criminal elements. In the advent of some misadventure, please contact festival security or the Santiago police. In all fairness the number of cases involving theft are miniscule in relation to the thousands of festival attendees.
