Before issuing the statement, the website for this event that was created in Valencia this year had ticket sales paralyzed. “Tickets not available,” says the space. The place chosen to organize these meetings is the City of Arts and Sciences. Although at first, as LAS PROVINCIAS reports, the event aspired to be held in June, in the end it had to be at the end of that month, given the schedule commitments that some artists had.

The most musical summer: all the concerts in the Valencian Community

On the scheduled program, the Valencian Jimena Amarillo or the composer Sandra Monfort sharing the stage with Iggy Pop, Christina Aguilera or the Black Eyed Peas. The bet is ambitious with a poster in which international artists cohabit with very local singers. The intention is not only to conquer the Valencian public but also to attract tourism in this way, as Lumbreras explains.

“For us it is a long-term project and it was born with a different idea, because we believe that Valencia has the ideal conditions to have an audience from other cities, it has potential that has not yet been realized. exploited in this direction”, they underlined during the presentation. For this reason, the maxim they then pointed out as the one they had set themselves was to find alliances with public administrations and companies dedicated to tourism.
