Phe Festival, which will be held in Puerto de la Cruz (Tenerife) from August 15 to 20, grows in its seventh edition incorporating new spaces and experiences while expanding the musical offer with 22 live performances. The Phe will fill the corners of the tourist city with music and trends, with a program that seeks to reconnect audiences, according to its organizers.
The festival takes “a qualitative leap” in terms of the selection of artists that are part of the poster for this edition. Thus, it will be the group Los Planetas, a reference band in independent music, who will head the poster for this edition. In addition, the international presence is increased with the German duo Digitalism and references from Latin America, such as the Mexican Institute of Sound and Mula. To these concerts are added those of Viva Sweden, Maika Makovski, Xoel López, Alizzz, Queralt Lahoz, Dani, The Parrots, Kokoshca, Goodbye Amores, Las Dianas, Jacket Tracksuit, El Faro, Lucia Tachetti, The Weeird, Baldosa and Mollo & The Freestyle Poodoo Experts who, spread over two stages, will turn the venue located on the esplanade of the Puerto de la Cruz pier into a celebration of the best of the independent scene on Friday, August 19 and Saturday, August 20.
The incorporation of a second stage is one of the main novelties of Phe 2022, “a measure that satisfies the interest shown for years by the festival to expand the musical offer, so that more presence of Canarian groups can also be incorporated”.
In addition to the concert days, Phe Festival once again includes a varied program of parallel activities with Phe Urban Sports, Phe Yoga and Phe Gallery, multiplying the expanded proposal Phe Summer Camp, a catalog of experiences related to urban sports, active tourism , nature and a healthy lifestyle that will take place from August 15 to 19, in tune with a city rich in identities.
With the experience accumulated in previous editions, the festival maintains the commitment of Phe Urban Sports. On Thursday, August 18, the San Antonio skatepark will host the regional skate and BMK championship, as well as exhibitions of riders and skaters. At the same time, the fishing pier of Puerto de la Cruz will once again be the scene of the Water Jump acrobatic jumps into the sea, which returns to Phe’s programming on Friday. The festival, which continues to promote the participation of competitors from all the islands with a travel bag for free transportation, will end the sports day on Thursday with an award ceremony at the concert venue, in an act that will feature musical performances related to with urban culture and hip hop.
Phe Gallery will also offer novelties this year, since its programming will extend throughout the municipality of Puerto de la Cruz, turning the city into an open-air stage. In addition to the usual collective exhibition of Canarian artists in the Castillo de San Felipe Cultural Space, there is a series of relational meetings of performative arts in different locations that will take place on Fridays between the opening of the exhibition, on July 30, and the concert days.
