From July 2nd to July 14th 2019, we celebrated the sixteenth edition of the Flamenco Festival Londres, currently one of the most important platforms for the promotion of flamenco on the international scene. Although it has traditionally been celebrated in February, this year it has been changed and will be performed throughout July.
Flamenco Festival Londres
Under the motto “This is creation. This is flamenco”, the London event reflects the vibrant contemporary scene of this art and the new paths that open for it. With creativity as the driving force and fundamental axis, with our feet in the present and our eyes on the future, Flamenco Festival Londres gives voice to creators of different generations, consolidated artists and new talents, who are advancing this language from very different positions, but with a strong personal stamp.
Flamenco Festival USA
On the verge of turning two decades old, Flamenco Festival has established itself as one of the most significant stable events of Spanish culture in the United States and the main platform for flamenco in the international cultural scene. After gathering 45,000 spectators in the United States in 2018, the Festival took place between March 7th and 17th 2019 to bring this artistic expression, World Heritage, beyond the Spanish borders in a total of nine shows which had 26 performances. 12 of them were based in two different spaces in New York, plus another 14 performances of Flamenco Festival On Tour with stops in three major American capitals such as Miami, Chicago and Washington DC.
