El Desvarío Flamenco is back
Summer festivals are back stronger than ever, like Desvarío with a great line-up full of artists from all over the world.
Desvarío. Flamenco 21 Nou Barris was born from the union of the District of Nou Barris and El Dorado (Sociedad Flamenca Barcelonesa). When last year the pandemic began to emerge, the idea arose to be able to enjoy a flamenco festival again and to reach all audiences, including families.
Although the conditions were not optimal at the time, it was a great success, and this year it will be held again from 22 to 24 July.
The programme of the festival "Desvarío" perfectly combines the presence of young and talented artists with that of fully consolidated figures, in this edition it has counted on the special collaboration of the guitarist: Pepe Habichuela.
Artists from Spain and America will take part-Catalan, Andalusian, Navarrese, Madrid, Mexican... Also from different disciplines: musicians, dancers, poets and scholars gathered around the art of flamenco, this year's poster has been created by the Argentinian illustrator and architect Pedro Strukelj.
