Radio and Televisión Española Agreement for Carnival 2018

Once more, public television channel, RTVE is to transmit the Gala Election of the Carnival Queen of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (on Wednesday, 7th February), nationally throughout Spain, 50 years since it's first transmission of the event. In 2018, the Rhythym and Harmony Contest will also reach every home in the country. This special coverage comes together with the transmission of other events such as the carnival main parade at a national level.

The Canarian public television stations signed a collaboration agreement for the promotion of the carnival both within and beyond new frontiers. To the almost 20 million people who at some time view these fiestas at a national level, the director of RTVE in the Canaries, Domingo Álvarez, explained “that you have to add the internet audience and viewers of the international channel, with a potential audience of 470 million".

If that's not enough, in 2018, it will also be the first time in history that the Santa Cruz carnival will be able to be viewed in high definition. 

RTVE llevará el carnaval chicharrero a los hogares de toda España

Most Santa Cruz carnival events are televised via RTVE or RTVC, locally, nationally and internationally or recordings may be found on the CarnavalTVC Youtube channel. 

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
