Every summer since opening in 2003, we organized a festival of bands that over the years has grown and become one of the cultural references of the Valencian Community and one of the cultural events marked in red on the agenda summer in our city of Torrevieja.
In the 13 editions this festival already accumulated, they participated bands of all Spanish territoy, as almost all European countries. During the days of the festival were always sold out of the 700 seats occupying the Municipal Theatre of Torrevieja, as the enclosure of the Eras de la Sal located a few meters from the port of Torrevieja.
This festival is held in the last week of August. Our band opened the festival with a special concert, and each day all the invited bands perform an individual concert for an audience given to good music. As climax, the last day of the festival ends with a closing ceremony where all the bands together perform a special show, playing musical pieces selected for the moment and of course, playing all hymns together of the regions or nations that have intervened at the festival.
