Phe Festival is also an option to enjoy with the family

If we already said it. Speaking of a perfect plan of vacation for everyone, we meant everyone… everyone. Because it can be possible without having to choose. If you are a father or mother, you can come and enjoy Phe Festival and you won't have to do it without the little ones. We define ourselves as family-friendly, and this summer in Cross port your children will be part of the plan.

Of course, for greater precaution and security, let us previously remind you of a series of guidelines that you will have to keep in mind to go with them:

  • Remember that children under 12 years of age have free access to the festival. If, on the other hand, your child is between 13 and 17 years old, they can buy their ticket or reduced price subscription (presenting the student card).
  • On the other hand, remember that children under 16 must be accompanied by their mother, father or authorized guardian.
  • Finally, and to guarantee their safety and mitigate your concern, they will only be able to access the premises if they have a signed authorization from the legal guardian. You can download this authorization HERE and deliver it the day you go to the festival, or you can fill it out at the box office on the day of access.

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 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”.

Phe Festival It is organized by Phenomenal and Imoa Productions with the promotion of the Puerto de la Cruz City Council. It also has the sponsorship of the Government of the Canary Islands through the Canarian Institute of Cultural Development and the General Directorate of Youth, as well as the Cabildo de Tenerife.

Urban sports take center stage in the 2021 edition of Phe Festival

The sixth edition of Phe Festival strengthens its commitment to urban sports with the launch of Aqualia Phe Sports, a varied catalog of regional and local competitions, exhibitions and workshops in disciplines such as skateboarding, BMX and skating, all of which will be developed on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 August in various spaces in Puerto de la Cruz.

After a year of hiatus forced by the health crisis, the sports aspect of Phe Festival returns and sees its program increased, which complements the two days of live concerts. Thus, those who come to the San Antonio skatepark on Friday the 20th will be able to witness the regional skate and BMX championship. The tests will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the modalities of open skate, BMX pro, skate under 16 and BMK rookie, with prizes valued at more than 3,000 euros. 

Participation in the competition is open to skaters and riders from all over the Canary Islands and, for those residents of other islands who want to get closer to competing Phe Festival, the organization will bear the costs of transfer. Attendance as public is free with limited capacity.

The championships will have the presence of the Madrilenian viki gomez, the best flatlander in Spain, six times world champion, who has an outstanding record of gold medals in different European and world competitions. The rider, who started practicing at the age of 14, will be part of the jury of the championships of Aqualia Phe Sports and will offer an exhibition on Friday the 20th, at 5:00 p.m., at the San Antonio skatepark.

Due to force majeure, the III BMX Aqualia Water Jump, a spectacular display of acrobatic jumps into the sea, already traditional in the Phe Sports program, has been suspended. The organization of the festival will make every effort to recover this proposal for future editions.

Aqualia Phe Sports is developed in accordance with the values promoted by the festival that, beyond the mere exhibition, brings sport closer to the festival audience as well as to the citizens and visitors of Puerto de la Cruz with an outstanding range of experiences, a meeting point that generate sensory dynamics that benefit everyone. In this way, on Saturday the 21st, the celebration is planned at the Manolo Santaella sports center of the longboard workshops dancing & air freestyle by ride2gether, as well as roller dance, basic skating and roller jam, given by Canary Roller Girls. These activities, with free access, will be carried out scrupulously following health recommendations. Attendance at the workshops is free but places are limited as indicated on the website

In its commitment to culture, art and its involvement with the city of Puerto de la Cruz, the creation of a mural will be promoted in the San Antonio skate park by the visual artist Raiber González, which represents a transversal proposal to recover community spaces through cultural actions.

Aqualia Phe Sports is an activity for the development of urban actions of Phe Festival, organized and directed by Phenomenal, Imoa Productions and Island BMX, and has the support of the City Council of Puerto de la Cruz through the Department of Sports, as well as the General Directorate of Youth of the Government of the Canary Islands and the Canarian Foundation of Youth Ideo. Featured partners and sponsors include Red Bull, Aqualia and Vans.

We export talent with Phe

The old saying that in some past time a squirrel could cross the Iberian Peninsula from tree to tree without setting foot on the ground could also be applied, saving the distance, to urban sports festivals and competitions, which have more and more popularity.

Obviously, those who practice these sports in the Canary Islands encounter the same problem as if the squirrel in history had been a majorera squirrel: the ocean slightly complicates the feat. Therefore, one of the great attractions of Phe Sports in his latest edition of the world formerly known as normal, it was the possibility of traveling to O Marisquino, one of the great sporting events in Europe, in the city of Vigo, with registration for the competition included. And that's where we were when everything stopped... Everything except the intentions. And it is that O Marisquiño has returned this year with renewed spirits, with the same enthusiasm and, although with the limitations of the moment in which we have had to live, it has maintained the competitive level of previous editions. Thanks to the organization and production work, it was possible to welcome a limited number of spectators safely, although we were able to follow the competitions by streaming.

And as promised is debt, there they were the winners of Phe Sports 2019, direct from Puerto de la Cruz to Vigo. Joel Camacho, Jony Trasher and under 16 Guillermo Camacho were worthy representatives and, in their own words, were able to enjoy an impressive experience who also trust that it can open new doors for the future. Joel Camacho, specifically, achieved an exceptional seventh place in street pro, one of the BMX disciplines, and returns proud of his participation and the result. In mini ramp, the skate modality with the most flow, the spirit of Phe was in the wheels of Jony Trasher, while Guillermo Camacho, only 15 years old, rolled over participants with much more experience. 25th place out of 75 entries is no small thing, huh? And we anticipate that we will count on your participation again this year in Phe Sports, where he has high expectations, something that fills us with hope. Among other things, because in a few years we will be able to say that so modern: “I knew him before he was famous”.

From here we only have thank you again for bringing a little Phe to Galician lands and congratulate you on the results. See you in the Port in a few days!

Phe Festival expands the program of parallel activities in its 2021 edition

Urban sports, yoga, art and music to revitalize and convert Puerto de la Cruz into a benchmark for cultural and leisure activities in the Canary Islands.

The 2021 edition of Phe Festival will feature an intense program of parallel activities that, grouped into themes such as art, urban sports, yoga or music, will help make Puerto de la Cruz a benchmark for cultural and leisure activities in the Canary Islands. Phe Gallery, a space for the exhibition of the current creation; Phe Sports, a catalog of competitions and shows of urban sports to experience and get to know the city and its citizens; or Phe Yoga, the union of mind and body through practice in the open air are some of the complementary proposals to the concert days that will take place in the month of August.

Any regular at Phe Festival, the event with independent music in Puerto de la Cruz, knows that they will not only find the mere exhibition of the live concerts – which will be held on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 August – but they will be able to enrich their experience festival-goer actively participating in a wide range of entertainment that invites the public to share emotions and dialogue, a meeting point that generates sensory dynamics that benefit everyone.

Sports, Yoga and Gallery

In the 2021 edition, some proposals that could not be carried out last year due to the pandemic, such as Phe Sports, will also return. Fans and professionals of urban sports will find a complete program in various areas of the city from Thursday 19 to Saturday 21 where adrenaline and action are the protagonists. It will begin on Thursday the 19th with the training session for the regional skate and BMX championship, which this year moves to the San Antonio skate park, one of the most complete in the Islands. The day of Friday 20 will be dedicated entirely to the competition in both disciplines.

The sports aspect of the sixth edition of the Porto festival  presents as a novelty this year an urban downhill MTB with the aim of revitalizing the city center on the morning of Saturday 21. The test will begin at the Hotel Las Águilas and continue with a vertiginous descent to the fishing pier passing through the Taoro Park. Competitors roll individually and the one who reaches the finish line in the shortest time wins.

To round it off, the fishing pier will once again be the scene of the Aqualia Water Jump, a spectacular display of acrobatic jumps into the sea, already traditional in the Phe Sports program. It will be on Saturday at noon when the riders will be able to jump into the sea from the ramp and achieve the best score by the judges.

The sports activities end in the afternoon around the pier, with the awards ceremony and a sample of activities typical of urban culture such as break dancing and roller-skating in acrobatic and playful variations in dance mode.

In its commitment to invigorate ideas and spirit, the festival once again incorporates into its programming one of the great trends that the health crisis left us in 2020: Phe Yoga. In this edition, the number of sessions is increased to enjoy this discipline that combines meditation and physical well-being, and will take place on Saturday, August 20, starting at 10 a.m. on the Isla del Lago Martiánez.

This year Phe Gallery will reflect mainly on the reality that we are living. In its bid to promote the work of artists from the Canary Islands, the collective exhibition will bring together, from July 30 to August 28 at the Castillo San Felipe Cultural Space, the work of 3TTMAN, Aldo García, Carlos S. Peña, Cristina Millares, Federica Furbelli, Laura Díaz, Lis es Beth, Manez, Moneiba Lemes, Noa González, Oscar Lorenzo, Paco Sánchez, Pathosx, Paula Calavera, Pelucas, Raúl Artiles and Serge Arzoumanian.

The website of Ph 2021 and the social networks will offer updated information with the details of the activities, calls and news that make up the Phe 2021 program.

Puerto de la Cruz and Phe Festival maintain with this program the artistic and entertainment proposals that it has been developing as an added value to the concerts that this year will be held on August 20 and 21 with a poster of musicians and bands in which references stand out. national and international such as Zahara, Rigoberta Bandini, Ana Tijoux, Mujeres, Biznaga, Mucho, Jack Bisonte or Pat Llombet. Tickets are for sale on the platform

Integrated into the strategy promoted by the Puerto de la Cruz Culture Area, Phe Festival is organized and directed by Phenomenal Studio and Imoa Productions, is promoted by the Puerto de la Cruz City Council and is sponsored by the Government of the Canary Islands through the General Directorate of Youth. Among the collaborators highlighted in this edition are The C Project, Red Bull and Hemispheria.
