Music and Dance contemporary Festivals

Music and Dance contemporary Festivals

There are usually hundreds of music and dance festivals taking place in Andalucia every year, especially in the summer. The festivals cover every genre from rock, pop, indie, folk, blues and jazz to classical and flamenco. Some of these, mostly those offering jazz, classical or flamenco, are well-established and have been taking place for many years, while others - generally pop and dance music - are relatively new.

In November the Andres Segovia International Classical Guitar Competition takes place in La Heredura's beautiful San José Church. This annual event attracts leading classical guitarists under 35 years of age from around the world and its objective is to promote the diffusion and study of the guitar.

Dreambeach is multi-day festival featuring the best electronic music on the planet, on the coast of Almeria. Dreambeach takes place on the first weekend (Friday and Saturday) in August at Playa Villaricos (Cuevas del Almanzora, Almería). It is now extended to cover more days.
