Platinum blonde songstress Julia Capogrossi is packing her bags and heading south, 5,000 miles south. She holds the coveted spot of the sole American entertainer at the San Pedro Country Music Festival held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
First of all, I had to get a passport,” laughed Capogrossi. “I was literally at the Post Office the next day filling out the form. I’ve never been out of the country and I am beyond honored for this to be the reason. I can’t wait!”
She will be accompanied by three talented musicians including Cassadee Pope’s lead guitarist, Derek Bahr, Clare Dunn’s bassist, Reed Berin and Chuck Wicks’ drummer, Rob Mitchell. Together they will play a full 60-minute set on the main stage of the festival on Saturday, September 23rd.
The 14th Annual San Pedro Country Music Festival presented by Country2.com will be held September 22-24, 2017. The festival is the largest of its kind in South America hosting up to 50,000 attendees in the past. The three days of music features acts from many different areas of Argentina, Chile, Peru, Uruguay and Brazil.
We can’t wait to welcome Julia to Argentina,” Gustavo said. “It was so nice to meet her, see her perform and watch her interact with fans last month during CMA Music Festival. We know she will be a wonderful addition and we can’t wait for her to take our stage, Capogrossi was exclusively asked by Country2.com CEO and Owner, Gustavo Laurino to fill the spot.
The entire festival will also be broadcasted live on the Country2.com website.
