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.

Together with these artists we will be able to see on the stage of Ph 2017 as those in charge of continuity DJ Full FX, considered one of the best in the country and whose sessions will make the festival an authentic summer experience, We Are Trash, a formation made up of Jessy la Ley and el Chico, with their selections full of a great sense of celebration, rhythm and musical quality.

Don't wait any longer to enjoy Phe Festival many surprises remain!
There are stories that become great, that become beautiful with an almost inexplicable naturalness. There are stories that are winning horses, that have the empathy gene implicit, that live fully in the present while giving birth to a future rich in nuances, promising; there are stories that from their very germ are a decalogue of good experiences. Some of this has Phe Festival. And here he comes, in his fourth year of life, making his way by walking...
This Friday afternoon, it opened the doors to its scenic emergence (we must not forget that Phe Festival is a broader multidisciplinary sample) in an accomplice summer afternoon. 'Third summer of love', says the main motto of the festival. So it was.
The much that music contributes to this August sample (a lot and good in this 2019) is completed with what its audience brings from home. Phe Festival it is an experience shared by thousands of attendees; around 5,000 people on this Friday day. They all have some protagonists too.
What is experienced at the foot of the stage is almost as valuable as what is displayed on the loudspeakers. And that's nothing, because in this first installment of 2019 the artistic poster featured names like Depedro, Locoplaya, Arizona Baby and Los Punsetes, in addition to El Extranjero, The Statue Thieves and Cariño, who were the three bands in charge of opening the festival from five in the afternoon.
At this point, after four first editions, there is blind faith in Phe Festival. Music is the ultimate claim for an experience that is both vital (in its fair dimension) and artistic. For many of the attendees, there is no summer until it arrives Phe Festival. And there the festival is waiting for them, at the height, with organizational solvency and with the necessary complements of the great musical events: rest areas, gastronomy, market, recreational activities.
And so, in that generous atmosphere of joy and expectation, Locoplaya's dismembered rap succeeds each other with almost the same success and acceptance as subtle proposals of Depedro's style. One of the moments of the festival, which also exemplifies its own community essence, was played by Jairo Zavala himself when he got off the stage to sing armed only with a microphone and his guitar, surrounded by thousands of people.
'Just say its so', 'End of the world' -Arizona Baby-, 'Let's see', 'More fresh', -Locoplaya-; 'You're talking', 'Idiot'; or 'Nubes de papel' and 'Dejalo ir' -Depedro-, among many other songs... were last night the soundtrack of a successful musical day that isn't so much about luck as it is about a job well done. Between pop, rock and rap -and all the artistic variety of its four editions- stories arise that are forever. Faced with the culture of the ephemeral, put Phe in your life.
