That planning effort and later crystallized in the first Ibero-American Musical Culture Festival Vive Latino, held in November 1998. Throughout the weekend, 27 Spanish rock bands began to write the beginning of this story: Hell's Angels, Illia Kuryaki, La Barranca, Kenny and Electric, Juan Perro and Aterciopelados, amongst others, were able to artistically that first edition was a success: those involved in the world of rock in Spanish are convinced that this party should continue and be organized annually.
