With the commitment to offer a safe cultural experience, Phe Festival will return on August 19 and 20, 2022 to Puerto de la Cruz with a program that will again combine live music with fresh and unique proposals to reconnect audiences. The festival says goodbye to a unique edition, the second marked by the new context, once again consolidating itself as one of the most outstanding cultural and social events in the Canary Islands.
Thus, Phe faces its next edition with expectations fulfilled and in a collective effort that contributes to revitalize the image of Puerto de la Cruz, a model municipality in the development and promotion of the island's cultural and creative fabric, as a safe environment and attractive destination. "From the City Council we want to thank everyone for the exercise of responsibility to say clearly that with work, effort and conviction, Culture is Safe and Phe Festival has been, once again, an example", he indicates to the regarding the mayor and head of Culture, Marco González. “In addition, culture is a value in itself because of what it means in these difficult times for so many people. And it is also a key factor in the reactivation of all sectors of the municipality, which has experienced a week full of activities, including sports, and which has led to significant economic revitalization so that Puerto de la Cruz continues to be a model of recovery for the rest of the destinations of the islands”.
With the dates announced for 2022, Phe Festival is now facing its seventh edition, reaffirming its commitment to turning Puerto de la Cruz into a benchmark for live music. To do this, it has put up for sale online through its website and the Tickety.es platform a first edition of fertilizers at a promotional price.
Commitment to culture
The days of live concerts on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 August have once again become the main theme of this summer experience that brought together 1,500 people per day in the 11,000-square-meter stable venue located on the esplanade of the Puerto de the cross, and what was adapted to the health prevention and safety measures required by the regulations.
The public at Phe has not only been able to enjoy the emotion of live music with a line-up that brought together names such as Anne Tijoux, Zahara, Bizarre Love Triangle, Rigoberta Bandini, Rufus T. Firefly, A lot, Biznaga, Women, _june, jack bison, Mel Ömana and Pat Llombet –with We Are Trash and The Groove Brothers as resident DJ– but also a set of parallel activities for the enjoyment, participation and motivation of all the residents and visitors of the municipality. Urban sports, yoga and contemporary art have integrated the festival's program which, once again this year, has reaffirmed its commitment to sustainable practices. In this way, those attending the urban competitions and workshops on Aqualia Phe Sports, as well as the participants in the different practices of Phe Yoga, in addition to Phe Gallery, the collective exhibition installed at the Castillo de San Felipe Cultural Space since the end of July, has brought together hundreds of attendees in this sixth edition that recovers the spirit of the summer festival that characterizes it.
As was done in 2020, Phe Festival has been held again adapting its organization and structure to the new context, all the activities have been carried out with an exhaustive security protocol for the public, artists and the team involved in the organization. All this without neglecting the values and commitments acquired by the event since its inception, a result that would not have been possible without the involvement of the Puerto de la Cruz City Council, and also that of institutions, sponsors and collaborators, whose support has been essential for the growth and development of this sixth edition. The festival wants to thank the public for their support and exemplary behaviour, as well as the Puerto Rican citizenship the welcome that it offers every year, especially to the local fellow, about 30 hotel and restaurant establishments in the region that in this edition have joined the Phe leisure proposal, a true reflection of the collaborative model of cultural management and citizen participation that characterizes Puerto de la Cruz.
"We continue to add from the City Council now with the launch of the second line of aid after joint work with associations and the rest of the political groups, -adds the mayor Marco González- this Monday the term of the new call opens, for thank and complete the extraordinary pulse shown by our city and its small and medium-sized businesses, to which the reopening of hotels and new commercial premises continues to be added, with what this means for employment and to continue generating wealth not only for our municipality but for the north of the island”.
