The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife returns to the streets with 400 artists and full of tourists

The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife will return to the streets, between next Thursday the 23rd and Sunday the 26th, with the expected attendance of some 800,000 people, the performance of 400 artists on the different stages and with a full tourist in the municipality.

The programming of events in the street will begin on Thursday 23 with the Burial of the Sardine, which will begin at 9:00 p.m. and will follow its traditional route. After that, the Plaza de la Candelaria will host a Tribute to Juan Luis Guerra and the Plaza del Príncipe will feature the performance of various orchestras.

On Friday the 24th, the Announcer Cavalcade will again parade through the center of the capital starting at 8:00 p.m., a day on which music will once again be the protagonist during the night with orchestras in La Candelaria, DJs on stage by Francisco La Roche and a musical special by Cadena COPE at the Príncipe.

In this way, Carnival by Day will take place, an event that will be the protagonist of Saturday 25: from noon, in the Plaza de la Candelaria there will be performances by comparsas that will give way to orchestras and DJs, as in the Prince, places where the music will be uninterrupted from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. the next day.

For its part, Francisco La Roche avenue will host urban-style artists, with the Dial Latino and 40 Urban, from 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

The program will come to an end with a novelty: the Rhythm and Harmony contest, which will be held on Sunday 26 from 9:00 p.m. on Avenida de Anaga, on a day in which the stages of the two squares will have performances in direct for twelve hours -from 12:00 to 00:00-.

The mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez, has pointed out that this edition is being “historic economically and touristically”, since the capital has registered 100% occupancy for next weekend both in hotels and as in non-hotel resources (apartments and vacation homes), which has generated that “many people are booking in the south and north of the island because there is no room here, which shows that all of Tenerife is going to be enriched by this Carnival” .

The local leader explained, at the press conference to present the events, that moving the appointment to June, after the pandemic prevented it from being held in February as usual, has been “a complicated decision, but the right one”.

Thanks to this change, competitions and galas have been held, “essential for groups to stay alive” and the opportunity has also been given to both residents and visitors as well as artists to return to the street, reasons that, Bermúdez’s opinion, support the success that this atypical summer celebration is going to have.

The mayor has also remarked that this edition will be special because “it does not coincide with other carnivals on other islands” and shows that “our Carnival is not only about economy and tradition, but about feeling”.

For his part, the Councilor for Fiestas, Alfonso Cabello, has detailed that there will be more than 400 musicians, 40 companies and 17 DJs who will “make their own” the stages of Plaza de la Candelaria, Plaza del Príncipe and Avenida Francisco La Roche, “usual artists and new ones who will remind us that there is no better way to celebrate than in Santa Cruz”.
