Afterlife Buenos Aires Postponed Due To Compromising Weather

Argentinians’ best Techno outfits will have to wait a few extra hours before giving it all out on the dancefloor.

It’s not called the City Of The Fury for nothing! Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, is known for its fairly unpredictable weather. Even though the streets are prepared with a tremendous drainage underground system and can comfortably bear the heavy rain the city experiences every now and then, events are not dealt with lightly, and are often evaluated with caution in mind.

The National Meteorological Service of said country issued an Orange Alert for the city for Friday afternoon, under the very likely happening of an intense thunderstorm that could make its way through the capital. Under these circumstances, it’s strongly advised that open-air events are cancelled, or moved to a later date, not precisely because some might find getting soaked slightly uncomfortable, but primarily because of the threat these phenomena pose. Buenos Aires is known for how fiery its storms become, carrying thunder, lightning, and very strong winds. Check it out for yourself! These are images from yesterday.

Afterlife BA: Postponed

One of the events that would have taken place Friday night in Buenos Aires was the returning gig of Melodic Techno iconic imprint Afterlife. Having landed around this time last year for their Argentinian debut, they were coming back for more. Nature said otherwise.

Even though the show was cancelled for the original Friday date, Afterlife made an announcement in their Instagram Stories, that they’d be postponing the event. Fortunately, for those who travelled to BA for the show, there’s still hope: the new date is this very Sunday, March 10th.

Final Words

It seems to be that, for now, Buenos Aires can let out a sigh of relief, as the situation was handled very swiftly. As fast as rain comes in BA, it may go away. For all we know, Sunday may just be the bluest, sunniest, shiniest day ever, inviting ravers to enjoy the spectacle of Tale Of Us, MRAK, Dixon, 19:26, and Ubbah. It’s one of the things that make that place so special. Take that from me.
