For lovers of music and flamenco in particular, the Festival de Jerez is not to be missed. The festival has been going since 1997 and is now the highlight of the year.
Held over a period of two weeks from the middle of February, every street corner and plaza resounds with the sound of guitar and singing. Impromptu displays of flamenco erupt in a vivid display of colour. There is a unique atmosphere in the town.
Concerts of classical Spanish music, ballet and, of course, flamenco are held in the Teatro Villamarta, the Museo de Atalaya and various bodegas and locations throughout the two weeks.
In 2024, Festival de Jerez is scheduled to take place from 23rd February to 9th March 2024.
The festival programme includes a variety of events and activities, taking place all day.
If you'd like to get hands-on, try the dance classes and programmes. There are basic dance classes with dancers and instructors such as Fernando Jimenez, Rafaela Carrasco, Andres Pena, Angel Munoz, and more that cover different dance styles like flamenco, salsa, and tango. There are also other dance intensive programmes and flamenco workshops. Ticket sales for the dance courses and workshops opens on 5th September 2023.
Of course, there are also shows and other events in the programme and more details will be available closer to the date.
