Ciudad Emergente (Emerging City), a festival dedicated to underground art and music has become one of Buenos Aires’ most anticipated yearly events for teens and 20-somethings.
The newest Espacio Buenos Aires Verde is the setting for this festival which used to take place at the neighborhood of La Boca, but this year it will be held at the Bosques de Palermo.

Ciudad Emergente now pulls over 300,000 yearly visitors and the festival’s surprise appearances are highly anticipated.
Travelers over 25 have no need to worry about feeling out of place – in Buenos Aires you’re allowed to consider yourself ‘young’ until well into middle age.
