Where and When is Estereo Picnic?
Estereo Picnic takes places in Bogotá at Parque Deportivo 222.
This year’s festival will be during the 23rd-25th of March.
Where to stay?
The festival doesn’t offer camping options. If you’re an out-of-towner you would need to book a place to stay. Since Bogota is a huge city, we highly recommend to book your accommodation as close to the venue as you can.
This year’s line up is bringing some of the best artists from around the world to Colombia.
The line-up includes Justice, The Strokes, The XX, Flume, The Weekend, Glass Animals, Martin Garrix, Sublime with Rome and Two Door Cinema Club and so many more.
Tickets are available at TuBoleta.com. Choose the option that matches better with your preferences and of course, budget.
Regular 1-day price: $265.000 COP + $35.000 COP service
3-day-combo V.I.P price: $1’250.000 COP + $155.000 COP service
The festival venue is actually located a bit outside the city, just after the famous Cafam Club. Don’t worry, the festival has you covered with various transportation options.
Choose between buses, private vans, cars and even, yes, a helicopter.
Book your transportation at the Estereo Picnic official site
Traveling by car? The venue has a parking option as well.

What to bring
It might or might not rain. Bogota’s temperature variates between 7°C and 19°C, and March is rainy season in Colombia, so be prepared! Add these items to your packing list.
Boots or leader shoes – it gets muddy!
A change of socks, just in case
A small backpack
Jacket or sweater (if they have pockets with zippers, you’re winning!)
Refillable water bottles
A torch for the night
Blanket to sit on
Wipes – useful for everything!
Get there on time so you don’t have to queue forever to get in
The fun extends beyond the stages. Several brands have fun activities for you to do around the festival grounds
Don’t leave your transportation to chance, make sure you arrange it beforehand
Don’t bring food or beverages, they’re not allowed
Always arrange a meeting point with friends, in case you can’t find each other and your phone is low on battery
If you wait until everybody else is hungry to purchase food/drinks, you’ll be waiting for a long time. Queue early!
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen, even if is cloudy!
And…have the time of your life!
Festival Estereo Picnic is the top musical festival in Colombia and an experience that you definitely won’t forget !
