From April 30 to May 3, Benicàssim hosts the first Flamenco Fusion Gastro Festival, a competition shared by great music and the most exquisite gastronomy. Music with soul and charisma, as well as exhibitions, gastronomic tours, dance classes and workshops make up a program the main star of which is the famous Flamenco singer from Granada, Estrella Morente. Come to Benicàssim and enjoy this spring festival that, with its innovative character and rich cultural heritage, will fill the streets of the city of music, joy and good food.
Benicàssim becomes this week the coastal capital of flamenco, thanks to the Benicàssim Flamenco Fusión Gastro Festival, featuring the performances of the most important voices of today's flamenco.
Most of the festival takes place in the streets of Benicàssim, with three outdoor stages: the promenade Paseo Pérez Bayer and the squares of Constitució and Els Dolors, where rumba and flamenco concerts, masterclasses and free flamenco and classical dance shows are scheduled. Besides, during this festival, a space has been reserved for amateur enthusiasts who can show their skills together with artists, singers, musicians and dancers.
In addition, festival goers can participate in activities such as dance and percussion box workshops, documentaries screenings, photo exhibitions, panel discussions or flamenco fashion shows, distributed through the main streets of the village. Not forgetting a wide gastronomic offer full of daily menus, tapas and drinks specially prepared for the occasion by EHOSBE (Association of Hospitality Businesses of Benicàssim). On the other hand, the retailers' association ACOSERBE has organized several workshops and a showcases' contest.
The main attraction of Benicàssim Flamenco Fusion Gastro Festival is the Granada singer Estrella Morente, performing on Saturday, May 2, at the municipal sports pavilion "Torre Sant Vicent". Know all the details here.
