In fact the Colombian government put forward a campaign to stop the negative stereotypes in popular culture. The campaign is called “
es Pasión” and aims to educate the foreign world about the false depictions in the media – so let us not associate Colombia with drug lords and terrorism! Colombia
Let us rather associate Colombia with something more fascinating like the festival Rock al Parque.
Once again, I have no news for 2011 dates but keep your eyes peeled for information at the webpage.
Fun Fact: As of 2004, Rock al Parque became the largest Spanish speaking festival in the world.
