Way back in July of 2011 Helmet was confirmed to play their first show in Chile. Unfortunately, due to circumstances completely beyond our control, that show was cancelled. At the time, we said we’d make it up to our Chilean fans and do our best to get back to Santiago soon.
It took 3+ years, but we are happy to announce that Helmet will be making their Chilean debut on December 6, 2014 at Rockout Fest.
Helmet will be playing alongside a lot of other great bands including Devo, Primus, (the) Melvins, Thurston Moore, Fantômas, and others.
