Which are the most important flamenco festivals out of Spain?
France, the United States and Mexico, among the hosts of the Flamenco Festivals for 2023.
Imagine the imposing rhythm of the heel tapping on the stage, the intimate strumming of a guitar, the singing that seems to come out of an unknown background. Imagine dancers filling the stage with color in their frilly dresses and suits. Now, imagine that scene multiplied by dozens or even hundreds, with the backdrop of different cultures and landscapes. That's the charm of flamenco festivals.
From the cobblestone streets of Andalusia to the avenues of America, these festivals bring together flamenco artists, enthusiasts and onlookers to celebrate this vibrant and ever-evolving art form.
At ALL FLAMENCO, we invite you to join us on this journey through the world of flamenco festivals.
Albuquerque Flamenco Festival (New Mexico)
This is one of the longest-running international festivals, as this year it will celebrate its 36th edition between June 9 and 17. "The purpose of this project is to preserve and promote the art, history and culture of flamenco among the national and international communities".

In the historic city of Arles, FlamencA, one of the French flamenco festivals that has attracted the most international attention in recent years, has been consolidated. In this 6th edition, to be held between July 29 and August 14, Arles will enjoy a varied artistic program: traditional flamenco concerts, singing, dancing and guitar, singing and guitar recitals with the purest flamenco, flamenco fashion show, exhibitions, screenings, music and poetry evenings, training courses and master classes with great masters in many disciplines.
Flamenco Art in Mont-de-Marsan
The French summer has another flamenco event in Mont-de-Marsan, where since 1989 the Arte Flamenco Festival has been held, where local and international artists converge to honor the flamenco legacy. A festival that is characterized by being eco-sustainable and offering some of the most resonant shows in the country.
The Blue Festival will celebrate its 5th edition this year, between March 29 and April 23. Located on the French Riviera, five years have been enough to consolidate it as one of the most important flamenco gatherings in the country. Guest artists will be confirmed through its website.
