One of the goals of the last public events at Wikimedia Mexico is give to attendees more ludic and fun experiences in addition to the wiki objectives, having creativity in the election of the places and the challenges to fulfill. On November 28 Wikimedia Mexico did a Wikipedia editing event on Multiforo Cultural Alicia, an alternative and counterculture-based place of arts mainly music. During his last 20 years was the house of thousands of beginning groups of the Mexico City musical scene. It was the place of the revival of some old rhythms fusioned with moderns like ska, surf rock and rockabilly.
The session of editing take place on the space where the crowds dance and mosh-pits during the concerts into four graffitied walls and the main stage of the Alicia. David Cortés Arce, a journalist and Mexican rock encyclopedist gave a talk about the state of the art about documentation and history of the different rock movements in the country. He confessed that Wikipedia don't like him due their lack of accuracy and the articles of several important bands. But he pointed that Wikipedia is absolutely necessary and promised to support the Wikipedia editing labor with documentation in the next event, planned to be held on 2016 in the same place.
