The artists, in addition to the dissemination of their music and their productions, received a sum of $10,000, to encourage local culture.

 The longest Mendorock in history 

The performance of selected musicians and bands will serve as a closing point for what has been considered the longest  Mendorock  in history.  The legendary Mendocino rock festival is taking place in a virtual way, from 31 July to mid-October . It was expected to close according to the schedule, however, to continue to stimulate local artists, Live Music 2020 emerged.

 Mendoza at Home 

Since the beginning of the pandemic and the declaration of quarantine, the authorities have insisted on the regulations to stay at home. As a result, the Mendoza en Casa platform has been made available to citizens.  It is a portal where cultural proposals abound: music, plastic arts, film, theater and other branches. Some are classic and old content, others are new productions, exclusive to quarantine times.  In any case, the offer abounds for those who usually attend museums, recitals and cultural spaces. At least they can satisfy their tastes.
