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 Rodríguez, 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 Corazón', 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 Adrián Lurbe and José Martí 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.
