In this post I would like to tell you about a group of Linkin Park fans that I belong to, please try to read it till the end, it is something that we have been working really hard and I would like to share it with all of you. This group is called Soldiers Argentinos and we are a fans club dedicated to Linkin Park.
Everything started with the need of sharing our experiences and anecdotes after the first show of Linkin Park in Argentina (near the end of 2010) and there weren’t active groups to do this and also to ask for the band to play again the next year. Finally, as many fans were asking for a place to chat and everything, a group was created so they could do this and also share their passion for Linkin Park and this is how Soldiers Argentinos was born. We started making monthly meetings, special events and with a hard work behind the organization, we keep the group alive reaching a lot of aims and the most important was being recognized by Warner Music Argentina as Official Fans Club in Argentina.
We have monthly meetings and special meetings in order to meet the fans, spend the day together chatting about our favourite band, listening to their music and making raffles of merch and official cds of Linkin Park. At the beginning of the meeting we were about 20 fans and nowadays we are 60 fans meeting every month. When there is a special event related with Linkin Park in the meetings we are more than 200 fans and in special dates like this we organize trivias with prizes like Vinyls, Singles, LPU Cds and other things that are not available in our country.

This photo is from a Fandom Meeting in which the aim was to join several fans clubs from different bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Evanescence, The Rasmus, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan and more, in one big meeting:
In the special events that usually are at night, we organize the meetings in a fast food restaurant that keep us a special place there for us to be comfortable, and then we continue the meeting in a nightclub with a capacity for 300 people where we go and listen to Linkin Park (and other bands) songs all the night:
The last big event that we organized called “Reanimation Experience” was in a place called Teatro Ciego (Blind Theatre) in which the members of our fans club had the opportunity to listen to Reanimation in a 5.1 format Surround in complete darkness and in a small auditorium prepared with all the elements necessary to listen to cds of this quality:
