MendoRock 2020: a classic that becomes virtual

The historic Mendocino rock festival takes place in a virtual way in 2020. Meet the artists who participate in this Mendorock.

MendoRock 2020

The organizers present it as the longest MendoRock in history. And, in a way, they're right.  The classic Mendoza rock festival   , historically, has been concentrated in a couple of days. However, when moving to digital platforms, a product of the quarantine, the 2020 edition will have weekly deliveries  and, in this way, will become the longest in the history of Mendorock.

 From July 31, at 20 and next Friday,  you can enjoy a new version of the Mendorock. You can see through Mendoza en Casa, the cultural content platform of the Government of Mendoza, which already gathers thousands of hours of audiovisual proposals and a lot of visits, every day.

The Mendorock is a music festival entirely dedicated to rock artists in our province and one of the most important in the region.  The first edition was in 2004, in Rivadavia and, since its edition in 2006, at the Teatro Gabriela Mistral, the festival was held until 2016, with some changes in stage and modality. That same year, it had its first edition 100% federal, with shows in San Martín, Malargüe,   San Carlos  , Luján and La Paz. 

The Mendorock was created by  Cristian Gambetta , conductor and producer linked to the genre, who organized the festival until 2012. In this new virtual version, he will resume the presentation of each of the specials, which can be seen by Mendoza at Casa.

Those who opened this new modality of the Mendorock were  Willy Tertulian, Do Chord and The Daughters of Janis. 

 Willy Tertulian  is a band from Mendoza formed in 2017 and that innovates from the musical. Through the fusion of styles he managed to define himself in a new genre: “jazz rollinga”.

For its part,  Do Acordo  is a rock band of General Alvear, which has two albums: Somos parte del tiempo (2017) and Renacimiento , which will arrive in a 2020 that finds them with greater maturity and musical evolution.

Finally,  Janis Daughters  was born in Mendoza in 2014, inspired by the great Janis Joplin. What was to be a single show to “take out the desire to recreate Janis classics”, generated an explosion of emotions that surprised both the audience and the members themselves.

 The full agenda 

The 7th of August is the turn of Javier Montalto, Nena and Carla Petrus. The 14, L'Impact,  Past Verde  and Verona, while the 21 will arrive Desastronomos and Spaghetti Western. To end the month, the 28th will be the turn of Vicki Zuin, Igualitos and Parió la Choca.

During September, on the 4th,  Mariana Päraway , Alfajores de la Pampa Seca and Trama will arrive. On Friday the 11th, Cínical, Rexsistence and Gamma Beta and Vid. Near Spring Day, the 18th, Bendita Úrsula, Chancho Va and Malala Joplin will sound, and the last installment of the month, the 25th, will feature Er Pocos, Estampida and Marta.

The last installment will be on October 2, with La Teylor Mendez, La Banda Invitado and Marian Jungla, and on October 9, with performances by Segunda Escolta, Kala Sumeriah and Vera de Venus.
