THIS SUMMER will see a series of open air concerts in the beautiful Torres park at the foot of the Castillo de la Concepción in Cartagena City.
Performances are scheduled from June 8, throughout the summer until September 9, and will feature the very best of Spanish music from rock to 80’s pop, through to dance and popular music.
Artists confirmed to appear on the ‘Noches del Torres’ are José Luis Perales, Fuel Fandango, Bebe, Marinah (of Ojos de Brujo), Invisible Dance, Los Rebeldes, Tenessee, Pica-Pica, Rosana, Ara Malikian, Jarabe de Palo and Nacha Pop.
The artist will be grouped into weekends of music from similar genres on certain weekends, for instance on June 24 and June 25, when the nights will be named ‘Voices for equality’ and ‘Rock the Mar Menor Live’.
Proceeds from the latter, featuring a return to the 80’s with Invisible Dance, Los Rebeldes and Tennessee, will go towards helping with the regeneration of the Mar Menor salt lagoon.
Concerts later in the month also include a children’s event with Pica Pica on June 25.
July’s dates include singer-songwriter Rosana and August’s highlight is the internationally renowned virtuos violinist Ara Malikian.
Whilst Nacha Pop, who has recently released a new album, will close the ‘Torres Nights’ shows on September 9.
The events kick off on Saturday June 8, with perhaps the most well-known artist in the line up, with a long illustrious career, José Luis Perales.
All the concerts will begin at 10.00pm, except for the Pica-Pica formation, which, being dedicated to a children’s audience, will adapt to the schedules of the youngest and will start an hour earlier, at 9.00pm.
Tickets range from 25 to 30 euros, with the exception of the José Luis Perales concert, which is 35 euros, and that of Pica-Pica at 12 euros.
‘Rock and Mar Menor live’, which costs 17 euros both of which will go to perform actions in the area for recovery and regeneration.
