Benidorm has presented at the International Fair of Madrid (FITUR) its calendar of festivals and events of 2019. A calendar that will have twelve dates: nine festivals and three leisure events.
Through the brand MUSIC & EMOTION, it is back to betting on these events that last year totaled more than 200,000 attendees turning Benidorm into 'The City of Festivals' with an offer for all tastes. Also, to this commitment to tourism events and festivals have joined companies and local establishments, which have made their facilities available to developers to expand the venues for these musical and leisure events.
The nine festivals scheduled for 2019, seven already accumulate several editions. These are the Low Festival, Fuzzville, Con Mucho Arte, Regueatton Beach Festival, Funtastic, Visor Fest and Iberia Festival. They are joined by the Iberia Festival Club, which will be "an advance" of the event that has already accumulated seven editions; and the Music & Emotion, a cycle of events with different proposals that will be developed in three consecutive weekends.
In addition, the city hosts three other events linked to leisure, which also accumulate many editions behind them: Benidorm Salsa Congress - which annually brings together thousands of fans of this dance and makes Benidorm "the European capital" of this modality-, Benidorm Pride - indisputable referent for the LGBTI public-, and the Fancy Dress, the costume party mainly led by British tourists and which annually concentrates more than 25,000 people.
Finally, the season of events is anticipated this year at the end of March, extending until mid-November.
