Formentera celebrates 25 years of Jazz a la Plaça, 10 years of Música a les Places

musica-a-les-places es-pujols1The Formentera Council's Office of Culture and Festivities has unveiled the 2019 programme of Música a les Places, a summer-long cultural initiative for tourists and islanders alike. Acting culture councillor Susana Labrador described the series as about “promoting culture and turning enjoyment of our public spaces into a tool to further social integration”. Concerts will be held outdoors in la Savina, es Pujols, Sant Francesc and Sant Ferran from Monday to Saturday.

La Savina
This summer, music returns to la Savina with Mondays in the Port (Dilluns al Port). From 10.00pm every Monday from June to September inclusive, live music awaits visitors of la Savina's port-side promenade, passeig de la Marina.

Es Pujols
Es Pujols's Europa square is gearing up for its own dose of live music from Antena Libre. Performances by the ten-year veterans of the Música a les Places initiative start on June 13 at 8.00pm and continue every Thursday to October 17 (no performances in August). In July concerts will begin at 11.00pm.

Sant Ferran
Sant Ferran welcomes its own live music series every Friday at 10.00pm between June 14 and September 27.

Sant Francesc
Saturday nights are classic—between June 15 and September 14, starting at 10.00pm in plaça de la Constitució, Formentera's most lovable jazz band returns to celebrate 25 years playing the square.

Collaborative efforts
Fuelled from the start by support from Antena Libre and the association Jazz & Co, Música a les Places is, in the words of councillor Labrador, “about conserving and fomenting music of all kinds, including live improv performances”.

An ongoing partnership between the Council and Estrella Galicia has once again been crucial to the organisation of both initiatives. With a self-proclaimed affinity for independent, alternative festivals, Estrella Galicia hosts 150 concerts every year in venues across Spain. The Formentera Council wishes to thank Estrella Galicia for its long-standing commitment to music and culture in our country.
