A major cultural event that aims to promote and transmit Spanish music, and raise awareness of the amazing past, present and future of music in Spain.

The Spanish Music Festival takes place from mid-September to mid-October, and more than twenty-five festivals have made it one of the most important in the country.

The festival was created thirty years ago to promote and transmit the musical heritage of Spain in two areas: creation and interpretation, with special attention being paid to local musicians. Another aim is to rescue neglected works and composers of great artistic value, while also encouraging modern talent and acting as a platform for young musicians and composers.

The festival has delighted the public with the entire range of forms and types of interpretation: symphonies, chamber music, solo recitals, all interpreted by the very best Spanish and international artists.

Modern and Spanish dance made their first appearance at the festival in 2008, and since then have formed part of an event that includes conferences, talks, courses and exhibitions.
