The eighth edition of Phe Festival, set to host two days of concerts on Friday and Saturday in Puerto de la Cruz, has kicked off its box office operations and introduced parallel activities for the event. These activities are in addition to the collective Phe Gallery exhibition, which will run until the 27th at the Espacio Cultural Castillo de San Felipe.
The organizers emphasize that wristbands, necessary to validate season tickets and purchase tickets, can be obtained at the box office. On Thursday, the box office will be open from 11:00 to 19:00, and on Friday and Saturday, it will operate continuously from 11:00. The box office is located at the entrance to the concert venue on the fishing pier.
PHE FESTIVAL: 100 SPANISH CITIES AND TOWNS PARTICIPATING
Spanning more than 100 Spanish towns and cities, the festival organizers have garnered an audience from 15 autonomous communities and a total of 114 localities across the country through the sale of season tickets. Geographically diverse origins include names like Torroella de Montgrí (Gerona), Oropesa (Toledo), Getxo (Vizcaya), Montemayor de Pililla (Valladolid), and Dos Hermanas (Seville). As expected, Phe Festival will also welcome audiences from across the entire archipelago.
Parallel activities commenced this Monday, featuring various yoga classes at different centers within the tourist city. An assortment of yoga styles are being offered, including aerial, biodance, and rocket yoga. These classes will continue until Friday and cater to beginners as well as those looking to refine their technique. The yoga events will culminate in the Yoga Meeting scheduled for Saturday at Plaza de Europa. Alongside yoga, Phe Festival has also introduced Phe Summer, which includes surfing lessons for adults and children, offered by La Marea Surf School at Martiánez beach.
Season tickets and day passes for the festival in Puerto de la Cruz are also available for purchase on the Tickety.es ticket platform (https://tickety.es/event/phe-festival-2023).
The musical offerings of Phe Festival will encompass over 20 hours of live music on both Friday and Saturday. These two days will see a diverse array of artists gracing the stages on the pier’s esplanade in the tourist city. Leading the lineup are the British band Orbital and Argentinean rapper Trueno.
Orbital, pioneers of dance music since the 90s, composed of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, are bringing their tour for their latest studio album, “Optical Delusion,” to the northern municipality of the island. This marks their debut concert in the Canary Islands. Trueno, a force to be reckoned with in the realm of rap and urban music, will also be making his first appearance in the Canary Islands as part of his “Bien o mal Tour 2023.”
These two offerings differ significantly in terms of concept and audience. Orbital will perform at the close of the first day of concerts on Friday, sharing the stage with other acts like The Reytons, Second, Jimena Amarillo, Sexy Zebras, Bala, Rocío Saiz, Adora, and Antiplancton. Trueno will wrap up the second day on Saturday, performing alongside Arde Bogotá, Natalia Lacunza, Shinova, Rocío Márquez & Bronquio, Morreo, Ghouljaboy, Hoonine, and Zurych.
