Show starts at 9:30 pm and, if you're not going in person, you should be able to stream the TV coverage live via the the CarnavalTVC Youtube channel.

Presenting the gala, directed by designers Marco&María, will be Pedro Rodríguez, of Radio Club Tenerife Cadena SER and Alexis Hernández, of Canarias Radio La Autonómica, with collaboration from singer, Soraya Arnelas.
