Organisers save seats for Formentera residents at upcoming ‘Son Estrella Galicia Posidonia’ festival

foto son estrella 2019 2From Friday to Sunday (11–13 October), Formentera will play host to “Son Estrella Galicia Posidonia”, part of Discover Formentera in October. Tickets to the festival went for €240, and are currently sold out. The lineup of performers, meanwhile, has been kept under wraps until now, with plans to reveal it to the festival’s 350 ticket-holders when they arrive on Formentera.

For Formentera residents, however, all is not lost. Ten tickets for each of the festival’s three “gastronomic and musical moments”—Saturday at noon, Saturday night and the Sunday noontime closing event—have been set aside exclusively for islanders. (Specially priced at €50, each includes a meal, drinks and an aperitif.) As in years past, the moments will play out in surprise locations which won’t be announced until the start of the festival.

Free concert, open to the public
What’s more, one of the main events will be open to the public and free to attend. In fact, it’s included in the activities programme for Festes del Pilar de la Mola. On Saturday 12 October, two surprise concerts—one at 10.30pm and another at 12 midnight—will be staged in the town square.

Taking place earlier in the evening, at 7.30pm, another noteworthy concert will be a joint affair by the municipal bands of Formentera and Muro. It’s the first event in a series of events celebrating twenty years of operations at the Formentera School of Music (Escola de Música de Formentera).

Teaming up with SPP
In collaboration with the Save Posidonia Project, festival staff will educate attendees of Son Estrella Galicia about the importance of safeguarding posidonia and encouraging them to take part in the programme to adopt square metres of seagrass meadows. The festival is organised by Estrella Galicia and receives additional support from the Consell de Formentera. The event offers participants three days of music, fine dining and nature to rediscover Formentera this October.
