Phe Festival is one of the fundamental projects in the framework of the strategy that is being developed in Puerto de la Cruz with the involvement of Turismo de Tenerife for the renovation of the city's image and tourist offer, based on the incorporation of cultural actions as a fundamental part of the attractiveness of its foreign promotion.
With this collective exhibition it is intended, in an ephemeral and direct way, to focus an artistic focus on Puerto de la Cruz, to reflect and put the viewer in front of a mirror where contemporaneity makes way for the classic, thus giving space and modes of expression to other existing realities. this exposure coordinated by Alex Leto expands and develops the collaboration already initiated in the previous edition between Phe Festival and The C Project, an occasion in which it had a smaller artistic representation and was installed in the festival grounds.
Ph 2018 once again shows its involvement with the local creative community and open-mindedness, developing a proposal that increases the experience of its enjoyment and involvement with its public, with culture as an accelerator of the sustainable development of the Tourist City.
Lhe festival concerts will be held on August 24 and 25 in the venue installed on the esplanade of the Puerto de la Cruz wharf with a poster of artists in which important national and international references stand out, such as Dorian, The Killer Swing, Nathy Peluso, Carlos Sadness, The Well Beloved or pedrina. Tickets are already on sale on the website itself. www.phefestival.com and on the platform www.tickety.es.
