Elvis Sanfiel will be in charge of conducting this first event of the Science Fiction Carnival, which will begin at 9:30 p.m. and will last just over an hour. This will be the premiere of the great stage through which the thirty aspiring queens of the Carnival will pass in its three modalities, to know, in that act, the order in which they will participate in their contests. To animate this gala, the guardians of the Scepter, the three current queens, the comparsas, murgas, Carnival characters and artists known to the general public such as Míriam Reyes, Anaé or Pepe Benavente and artistic revelations such as Jess Martin will participate.
Under the direction of Enrique Camacho, the act will be broadcast live through Canarian Television for the entire Archipelago, but the public and the national and international media will have the option of having photographs of this event and all those that take place in the Fairground, as well as those that take place once the Carnival hits the streets, thanks to the agreement reached by OAFAR with the company I Love the World.
