Wine, yoga and song: Music festivals without the mud or madding crowds:

July 31st, 2022

IN A NON-COVID year, you can take your pick from about 800 music festivals in Spain – in some of which, the music is only part of a packed programme of completely unrelated activities that might even include yoga classes and wine-tasting – at least one in almost every province, featuring local or national bands which may or may not have made the mainstream music charts, and often with a handful of inter-galactic superstar singers or groups swinging by the western Mediterranean on a world tour.


Culture minister: “If I was 18 this year, I'd spend my voucher on Elton John records”:

July 29th, 2022

TURNING 18 is always either an exciting or absolutely terrifying time, depending upon the life you lead in general, but it's rarely 'just another birthday' or devoid of emotions – and, if you live in Spain and it's your 18th this year, the ministry of culture wants to help you celebrate it with €400 to spend on entertainment and arts, as we reported earlier this week.
