The Jardines de Fontecha have dressed up to present the program of the 65th Albacete Festival and the special musical program that the Department of Culture and Fair has prepared for the month of September. There will be 23 cultural events that will take place, mostly concerts, between August 19 and until September 17, in different areas of the city and adopting the appropriate sanitary restrictions.
“There is not going to be a Fair, this year I will not have the honor of opening the Puerta de Hierros”, the mayor, Emilio Sáez, began by saying, but then he stressed that he was proud of the cultural and musical programming that has been presented for the months August and September, “few cities in Spain will be able to boast of a cultural offer of this level this year, which I am sure will be the prelude to the 2022 Fair, which will be the best Fair in recent times”.
Emilio Sáez has been in charge of closing this presentation, in which the Councilor for Culture and Fair, Vicente Casañ, has shelled out the programming that will bring more than 40 artists to Albacete that will make it possible for the city to “have a high cultural offer ”Said Casañ, since artists and bands such as Rozalén, José Luis Perales, Vetusta Morla, Ara Malikian, Miguel Ríos, Second, Loquillo or El Barrio will pass through Albacete, among others.
Some of these artists have expressed, through videos that have been screened in the presentation, their desire to perform in Albacete, such as Maria Rozalén, which opens in the Plaza de Toros, or Miguel Ríos. Yes, the Social Security singer, José Manuel Casañ, has been present at this event, who has conveyed the emotion that artists feel at a poster like the one presented in Albacete, which offers them the possibility of returning to the stage.
A return that is made by being especially careful with sanitary measures, as stated by Ángel Sierra, who has intervened on behalf of the companies promoting these concerts (Aqo Producciones, Espectáculos Sáez, Mapache Events, Universal and Territorio Musical). “We spare no effort in adapting the venues to all the measures that the health authorities have, the best concert is the one in which we leave healthy and happy, infected only with the joy that we seek to be able to enjoy music,” Sierra stressed.
