2019 Jerez Festival

The 2019 Jerez Festival featured 50 shows and offered 49 courses, master classes and workshops to students from all over the world. Unforgettable performances were given by artists such as Marco Flores, José de la Tomasa, Ana Morales, among many others.

In this edition we remember “Anónimo”, the show by David Coria that won the Audience Award; Concha Jareño who toured the world with her “Flamenco Recital” after opening it at the festival and Felipa del Moreno who premiered “Jerezaneando”, her first solo album.

2018 Jerez Festival

The 2018 Jerez Festival brought together more than 34,500 spectators and participants from five continents to speak the same language, flamenco. In this edition we remember “Vamo’ allá”, a show by Flamenconautas, choreographed by Javier Latorre, that can be seen exclusively in ALL FLAMENCO.

Other memorable performances were Rafaela Carrasco, who demonstrated her creative potential with “Nacida sombra”, a show that received the Critics Award 2018 and María Terremoto with “Raíces”, a concert where she made it clear she would be an important flamenco voice.

What is the Jerez Festival?

For 24 years, Jerez de la Frontera has had a special place for flamenco lovers. The Andalusian city celebrates the annual Jerez Flamenco Festival where training and entertainment is offered.

For two weeks, between February and March, great masters give courses and workshops to trainees from all over the world. At the same time, shows starring the most important figures of flamenco culture touch the hearts of the public in the Villamarta Theatre, the Sala Compañía, the Sala Paúl and the Palacio Villavicencio.

The Jerez Festival is a major attraction for any flamenco artist and for fans of this culture. Today, the capacity of the event can exceed a thousand people, including students and the general public. This is obviously thanks to the quality of the event which is surpassed every year and also thanks to its extensive dissemination facilitated by technology.

Going back to its origins, the scenario was different. Historically, the Jerez Festival dates back to 1963, when the International Flamenco Courses organised by the city’s Chair of Flamencology began. For more than 30 years, its name was “Flamenco en Jerez”. These courses became so important that they were included in the national program of the Festivals of Spain.

The first shows took place in the courtyard of the Real Alcázar Mosque, precisely because that was where the first seat of the Chair of Flamencology was located. At that time, the dissemination of the event was done by mail to the Spanish embassies, consulates and tourist offices. Year after year new fans from all over the world were arriving, both to take courses and to attend the performances. In a second stage, the venue was moved to a magnificent location ceded by the wine company Domecq, to finally stop at the present main venue, the great Villamarta Theatre.

It was in 1997 when it took its current name, Festival Flamenco de Jerez, and since then the history of the flamenco world continues to be written in Andalusia.

Masterful figures such as Sara Baras, Antonio Canales, Isabel Bayón, David Coria, María Pagés, Rubén Olmo, Javier Latorre, Rocío Molina, Eva Yerbabuena, Israel Galván, David Lagos, Rafaela Carrasco, Marco Flores, among many others, have left their mark on the tablaos. Talent abounds and always surprises. It can’t be any other way when these vocalists, dancers, guitar players and other musicians leave their heart, soul and life behind demonstrating the true essence of this art form.

After 24 years, this long-awaited event continues to welcome artists with great careers, as well as new talent, from the most classical and traditional performances to daring contemporary productions. What is unquestionable is that the passion made flamenco is lived in Jerez.
