Arena Bogotá is currently being constructed on Calle 80, allowing the arena to serve as the destination spot for the Colombian capital to converge at a series of events, including: live music performances, business conventions, and sporting events. The mega-structure, which surely will become a must-see cultural and entertainment center in the region, occupies a plot of land that exceeds over 1,000,000 square feet, and ultimately will include construction on over 750,000 square feet as part of the Arena and other event-space.
Arena Bogotá will have a capacity of 24,000 spectators as part of a strategic design that caters to attendees. Artists, local promoters, and producers will also appreciate some thoughtful touches such as spacious backstage areas / dressing rooms and a storage space of more than 40,000 square feet, allowing for more than 10 trucks to simultaneously load-in (i.e. the largest loading and unloading space of its kind in Latin America). Given the decades of experience that Cardenas has as a promoter of live music events throughout the world, these features are designed to streamline logistics and minimize costs for everyone involved.
Arena Bogotá’s design matches its mission, to provide all spectators with direct lines of sight from any point, with the objective that visitors can thoroughly enjoy the wide range of entertainment that will come from the hand of Cardenas.
With Arena Bogotá, the public will find for the first time in Colombia a roofed space with a distinctive variety of food and drinks, over 2,500 parking spaces, and plenty of restrooms to reduce long lines, among other attractive benefits, as compared to other arenas in the region, creating an enticing venue for many artists who have always wanted to perform in Colombia.
