During the two-week celebration, you’ll see the very best of this most Andalusian of music genres. While the 2017 programme has yet to be released, it’s sure to feature some of Spain’s finest performers. Previous artists have included José Enrique Morente, Cristian Guerrero and Antonio el Pipa. Running alongside the Biennial is the ‘Flamenco is anywhere’ exhibition which features an itinerary of visual art exhibitions, workshops and installations. If you’re a flamenco fan, come to its birthplace to experience this vibrant festival.
The Flamenco Biennial Festival takes place over two weeks in September 2017. Performances are held in some of the city’s most iconic and historic venues, including the grand Teatro Lope de Vega and the former Moorish royal palace, the Real Alcázar. Given the popularity of flamenco in the area, tickets do tend to sell out quickly so we would recommend buying yours as early as possible if you plan to attend. Prices vary from €10 to €40 depending on the venue and your choice of seats. You can buy your tickets from the official website here.
If you’re planning to attend this exciting festival, make sure you bring a healthy dose of sunscreen with you. Due to its southern inland location, Seville temperatures can reach in excess of 40 degrees celsius in August and, although the city does cool a little in September, you’ll certainly need to take some cover from the sun. Most of the festival performances take place during the evening when the temperatures tend to be absolutely perfect for enjoying al fresco entertainment.
