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.

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.

Phe Yoga expands its offer in the 2021 edition

the encounter Phe Yoga, which will be held in Puerto de la Cruz on August 20 and 21 within the parallel programming of Phe Festival, doubles its offer this year with eight sessions, instead of the four programmed in the previous edition. The meeting will take place on the island of Lago Martiánez, which It will become a meeting and coexistence space for all the participants..

It is a response to the success of the call in 2020 and the commitment of the organization of Phe Festival with the development of transversal activities that complement the purely musical offer. The program takes place in two parallel blocks from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and attendees will be able to choose between different styles whatever their level of practice. The intention is to bring the different disciplines closer to both people who already practice yoga and those who are about to discover this activity for the first time and cultivate both the physical and the spirit at the same time.

Other more heterodox proposals that are combined with dance are incorporated into the traditional practices of breathing, meditation and relaxation, resulting in an ideal combo for those more restless spirits. As an example, the surf + yoga practice that will take place on Friday from 2:00 p.m. In addition, an inversion workshop with feetup, a Thai yoga session, the renewal of Ashtanga yoga and the dynamism of Yoga Dance, will be the showcase for this activity that has recruited so many followers during confinement.

Phe Yoga will culminate on Saturday with a vegan picnic of coexistence among the participants, by The Dog is Hot and 81 Foods, with the intention of prolonging the experience and developing themes related to the spirit of the meeting, such as conscious eating.

In accordance with health recommendations, the number of places is limited and the sessions will be held scrupulously contemplating all current security measures depending on the level of restrictions in which Tenerife is at that time. Even so, the organization recommends, above all, responsibility and caution. Registration for Phe Yoga can be done on the same Phe Festival page or at Tickety.es.

Commitment to sustainable development

Phe Yoga is an activity directly related to some of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, with which the organization of Phe Festival is firmly committed. Health and well-being and responsible production and consumption are some of the axes on which to reflect and put into practice during the sessions, although Phe's daily activity can influence up to eleven of the objectives set by the United Nations. Thus, for example, in collaboration with the Sustainable City and Planning Area of Puerto de la Cruz, Ecoembes, Ecovidrio and Tenerife + Sustainable, a Waste Management Plan is carried out that guarantees sustainable consumption and production methods, incorporating a circular economy approach that goes beyond waste management.

In accordance with this line of sustainable action, Phe Festival prioritizes issues such as health and well-being, with a self-protection and occupational risk prevention plan managed in collaboration with the Porto corporation and presented, since the previous edition, in the context of the health crisis derived from COVID-19 and in the that all phases of the event are contemplated.

What's more, Phe Festival commitment to gender equality both in the organization and in programming, with policies and measures that promote gender equality in the cultural and communication sector. In this sense, it tries to go one step further as an organization by dealing with equality, or its lack, in these sectors to detect problematic situations and propose solutions.

Clean water and sanitation, with accessible drinking water and adequate resource management in sanitation and the prioritization of clean energy during the festival are other actions in which Phe Festival is committed to sustainable development. To these actions we must also add those focused on economic growth through the supply of quality work, guaranteeing job security, continuity and access under equal conditions.

Definitely, Phe Festival and the City Council of Puerto de la Cruz work together  in an inclusive, safe and sustainable city project, taking into account criteria such as well-being, justice and social equality.

Phe Yoga is a sustainable development activity of Phe Festival, organized and directed by Phenomenal and Imoa Productions, and has the support of the Puerto de la Cruz City Council through the Department of Culture. Among the outstanding collaborators are BB Agua, Ecoembes, Ecovidrio and Tenerife + Sustainable.

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.

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.
