Marchena “Fiesta de la Guitarra”

Marchena “Fiesta de la Guitarra”

The “Fiesta de la Guitarra” is held towards the end of July in the town of Marchena in the province of Seville.  While the art of flamenco guitar is the main focus of the festival the event also attracts other flamenco musicians, singers and dancers.  The venue is also of interest: located in a former palace in the center of the town.  The list of past performers is impressive and includes names such as Camarón, Carmen Linares, Tomatito, José Mercé and Aurora Vargas.   Recent versions of the festivals have also focused on young talent as well as local flamenco musicians, singers and dancers.
