Phase 1 of the Adult Murga Groups Contest

Primera fase murgas adultas 2019

The first phase of the Adult Murga Contest takes place today, Monday, 13 June 2022, from 9pm, at the Tenerife International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses

The first half dozen murga groups taking part are:
  1. Tras con Tras
  2. Zeta Zetas
  3. Mamelucos
  4. Trapaseros
  5. Chinchosos
  6. La Sonora
Murga La Sonora are making their debut at carnival this year, after two years in waiting.

Admittedly, the murgas are perhaps the hardest carnival component to warm to if you can't follow the precise meaning of their clever lyrics or are not into the sound of the kazoo (is anyone?), but they are the most popular element of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife carnival.

Some carnival events can be followed online via CarnavalTVC.
