The best of national indie music arrives in Puerto de la Cruz with the Phe Festival

A concert indie with the participation of some of the most important national bands on the current scene. This is how it looks this year Phe Festival, with an eye on the 2017 edition to hold a large-scale event, a new music festival that will make available to the public a program of fresh, unique and original artistic and social actions, designed to be enjoyed in Puerto de la Cruz , and which includes a training and informative meeting, dedicated to cultural management and its implications for tourism entitled Power Changers 2.

Phe Festival is part of the planning project conceived in the Cultural Strategy of Puerto de la Cruz 2020, which also includes projects of the stature of festivals such as journey, Mueca, port street art or Canary Jazz Festival and in which the public institution, City Council, seeks to generate alliances and complicity to promote the feeling of co-responsibility for a common project together with various entities, creators, citizen groups and private companies. The Phe-Festival Thus, it becomes another of the great bets promoted by the culture area of the Porto City Council, from an integrating and participatory principle and a defined commitment to quality that also affects the promotion of Cultural Tourism. Sandra Rodr铆guez, Councilor for Finance and Culture of the northern consistory, maintains that "with this new commitment, our city achieves a continuous line of commitment to culture, generating both artistic, economic and social wealth." Phe has the support of Puerto de la Cruz Urban Rehabilitation Consortium, Council of Tenerife in its areas of Culture and Tourism and the Canary Islands Government.

In this 2016 edition, as a preview of what will be the first big event of next year, the festival will count for its appointment on August 6, with the groups Cycle, the red room, Of faith, Belako, Red Beard and Kostrok, a firm commitment to groups that are a reference in the independent national sphere and electronics with international claim. Among its programmatic lines is also granting an important role to Canarian musical production.

Phe, designed for the enjoyment of a wide spectrum of the public, is a festival that wants to grow in the north of Tenerife from the consideration of the city of Cross port as an international benchmark for tourism and a pioneer in Spain of a socioeconomic model that is constantly being updated. The stage will be located in a closed area on the esplanade of the port, next to the sea, with the philosophy of promoting human, artistic and musical diversity and that attendees find in it a leisure alternative to spend a good weekend.

Cycle, one of the best bands of recent times, returns to the Tenerife stages as one of the main claims of Phe Festival. They do so after celebrating their tenth anniversary with 'Dance all Over', their fourth album, rock danceable with electronic punch, basses and synths from David Kano, the provocative voice of La China and the exciting voice of Luke Donovan, a mixture of rage, tenderness and sadism. Together with them, the Valencian band the red room headlines this presentation concert for Phe, on the presentation tour of his tenth studio album 'Sagrado Coraz贸n', with which they have sneaked into the top of the bills of independent music festivals.

Also with a new LP, 'Hamen', they arrive from the Basque Country Belako, group of rock, post punk and electronic music considered by critics to be one of the most promising on the national independent scene. And from rock more vital to electronics more indie from Kostrok, the Valencian DJ duo made up of Adri谩n Lurbe and Jos茅 Mart铆 who triumphed on the dance floor last summer with Right Now.

The latest addition to the PHE lineup is Of faith, or what amounts to the same thing, Oscar D'Aniello, now on his own after finishing his stage with the Flores Azules, who has just presented his new album 'La Fuerza Irresistible'. A repertoire of vital songs with a style that mixes pop, hip hop, soul, funky, disco, and that bring a positive and carefree character to this concert Phe Festival who wants to be a festive referent in the concert calendar of the Archipelago.

let's talk indie

does he have a future indie? If all that is not mainstream is indie, is it really a musical style with a defined aesthetic? Can a group or artist stop being indie? In recent years we have witnessed the apogee of this apolitical musical trend that has used the new distribution systems to reach a wider audience and has placed names like Franz Ferdinand, Wilco or Pixies, living with those of any world star of the pop or the rock. And all in a context in which there are innumerable media outlets and fanzines that have emerged under the umbrella of this genre.

Puerto de la Cruz: tourism was born here

festivalgoer, because not everything is going to be music, sun and beach, we invite you to browse through the evolution of an authentic city that went from being a commercial port to the European center of tourism, and that today is reinventing itself to become referent of cultural tourism.

Not everyone knows it, but certainly Cross port it is loaded with history. Although it is now an 'alternative' vacation destination that offers the 21st century visitor unique and original experiences, this municipality in the north of Tenerife (the smallest on the island with 8.7 km2) was the place where tourism began in the Canary Islands in the first decades of the 19th century.

There are even those who say that this city was always touristy, even when what is now known as tourism did not exist. In fact, there are archaeological evidence 鈳糿ecropolises and burial caves鈳 that bear witness to how the island's aborigines, the guanchesThey moved to the coast of Orotava Valley in search of a more pleasant climate to spend the winter months. Come on, some precursors of tourism in high season.

And it is that when making trips for the pleasure of knowing other cultures, landscapes turned out to be exotic, and the spectacular nature of the natural environment, the mild climate and the sky of the Port had called the attention of many scientific expeditions who in the 18th century and the first half of the 19th century visited the island on their way to America, Africa or the East. You know why? Well, because of the proximity to which It was believed then that it was the highest mountain in the world, the Teide, venerated both by merchants and navigators as well as by travelers.

But the imposing volcano was not the only thing that allowed the development of tourism in the Canary Islands, and in particular in Puerto de la Cruz, since its geographical and historical singularities they made merits to lift him up in the number one of the tourist destinations par excellence, displacing Madeira and Europe.

From the first decades of the 19th century, and after the opening of the waters of the Atlantic at the end of the Napoleonic wars, British people with health problems began to arrive on the island in search of a climate that would better favor their convalescence, that is, a health resort. AND Cross port, at that time the main port of the island, became the first tourist destination in Tenerife and the Canary Islands.

One of the discoverers of the touristic and curative qualities of the Port was William Robert Wilde, one of the most recognized figures in medicine in Victorian Britain and father of writer Oscar Wilde. He made a visit to the valley of La Orotava and recommended Puerto de la Cruz as a better destination than Madeira and the Italian and French Rivieras, it was an unparalleled propaganda accolade for the city.

But therapeutic holidays were not the only objective of visitors to the municipality at that time. there was also 鈥渉ikers鈥 for leisure or pleasure. The historian Nicol谩s Gonz谩lez Lemus tells us that 鈥渋n 1848 a British expedition arrived from Madeira to take an excursion to Teide鈥. Long before the first tour organized by Thomas Cook to the Alps!

One could not speak of a tourist movement such as today, neither Tenerife nor the rest of the archipelago had a solvent accommodation infrastructure, and yet Cross port It had some hotel establishments. The first inn in the Canary Islands it was opened there in 1814 when an English carpenter rented a house on Zamora Street to make it the lodging place for many British people. And this was the origin of later significant projects that began to consider tourism as an economic activity, as is the case of the Marquesa, Monopol and Buenavista hotels and the representative Hotel Taoro.

The most significant of all was the first sanatorium of the Canary Islands to welcome sick tourists, the Hotel Orotava, which opened on September 12, 1886 as first Spanish tourist center in Europe with services designed to provide rest, comfort and personalized attention to foreign visitors.

It is from then on Puerto de la Cruz is consecrated as the first tourist enclave of the Canary Islands. Among the anecdotes that are told of the time, it is said that in the winter of 1887-1888 it was recorded the first overbooked of the history of tourism in the Canary Islands, given the success of the call of this city among British visitors.

Cross port then lived great moments. Today tourism has changed but the city continues to preserve an exuberant physical and natural setting, a temperate climate with warm summers and pleasant winters, a historic center where tradition and modernity coexist and a cultural offer that is more than attractive for those who are no longer satisfied with spend the holidays lying on the beach.聽
