Any follower of artistic festivals has this Murcian festival marked in their agenda... It's massive and important!
For festival-goers in May.
This art festival in Murcia was organised for the first time in 2008, and takes advantage of the installations at an enclosure called La Fica, next to the centre named Auditorio y Centro de Congresos Víctor Villegas. Its initial idea was to organise a festival that was to be essentially based on music, but it was also to include the rest of artistic disciplines, and they have been highly successful in doing so. Since then, the festival has been getting bigger and now it's not only one of the names on the Spanish festival circuit, it's part of the European dates too, where national and international stars usually come to perform. Although their success has also meant that the festival has stopped being held in the pastoral castle, which was the venue for the first editions, it still keeps being one of the city's attractions that is held annually during the first week of May, and it's the perfect excuse to discover the region of Murcia.
