Today, Chicago’s Lollapalooza 2013 began and taking the stage is Chile’s Astro.

Astro will be taking the Red Bill Sound Select stage on Sunday August 4, at 12:45 PM, so if you have a pass be sure to check them out.

Astro (Octavio Cavieres, Nicolás Arancibia, Daniel Varas and Andrés Nusser) is a renowned Chilean band that stands out not only for its fresh sound and artistic sensibilities, but also for its bold, energetic and highly interpretative live show.

In a very short time, Astro has achieved wide recognition on the Chilean independent circuit and, more recently, in the international arena. The group formed in September 2008 and, by mid-2009, was already a force to be reckoned with throughout the local independent scene in Chile – they were performing to packed crowds at Santiago’s most significant events.

It must also be noted that the track “Panda”, another catchy song on their debut LP, was selected to appear on the official video game soundtrack for FIFA 13 (EASports).

In early 2013 the band has tour through Mexico, Panama, Dominican Republic and USA, to perform in several sevents as: Carnaval de Bahidora, Festival Verde de Cultura Musical and Redbull Panamerika Escenario LA. Meanwhile, they are working in a new album.

Astro has it all. With a defining sound, solid musicianship, and outstanding artistic sensibilities revered throughout the world, their proven crossover potential will undoubtedly continue to define itself as they focus their future efforts on conquering the worldwide music scene.
