This last weekend was the first part of Coachella in the US. Spring often seems to be the start of music festivals and Chile is no different. This amphitheater is the home to the largest music festival in Chile; some say it is the most important music festival in the Americas.
The facility holds 20,000 people and is located in the middle of the the Quinta Vergara Park in Vina del Mar, a town just north of Valparaiso, Chile. The "ceiling" is filled with pipes to aid in the acoustics of the venue. I was told that during the era of Pinochet, this was the only way a Chilean could hear foreign music in the country.
