Something for the weekend: Fiesta de la Música La Laguna 2015


This weekend in La Laguna, on Saturday, 20th June, 2015, is the Fiesta de la Músic, which Jack Montgomery describes as, "A bit of a musical free for all with all sorts of music styles". I can only imagine that to be a good thing with the possibility of finding something new and fun.

The Fiesta de la Música is an international celebration, usually celebrated on June 21st, the first day of summer. In French it's known as The Fête de la Musique, in English as Make Music Day or World Music Day. In La Laguna festivities (Facebook page) take place predominently in the Plaza de Santo Domingo, however, this map shows that there are many other stages throughout the city.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
