Music festivals in Mallorca
Mallorca is a destination that has a wide cultural offering among which the numerous music festivals that are organised around the city of Palma and in the towns across the island stand out. Both in winter and in summer, you will find a wide array of these festivals which have become a top attraction for the curious visitors who want to get closer to the Mallorcan culture.
From classical music and jazz to the most current music, the diversity of styles that can be found at these events make Mallorca an island rich in culture. In addition, some of them enjoy great historical heritage, as is the case of the oldest festival on the island, the celebration dedicated to the composer Frederic Chopin. Founded in 1930 in the beautiful Cartuja of the town of Valldemossa, this festival represents the works of the famous musician in charge of talented pianists in a tribute to the time he lived in this magical Mallorcan town.
Along the same lines are the series of annual concerts in the wonderful Calobra. In one of the most magical places on the coast of Mallorca, in which the sea and mountains come together forming a landscape worthy of a postcard, a series of musical performances are held by choirs and classical music groups from the island. The great acoustics of the place are the the result of the imposing mountains that surround it, while also giving this festival a unique character that is worth visiting.
There is something for Jazz lovers as well with the Jazz Voyeur. This magical festival has been held at the Trui Theatre for ten years and welcomes great international artists who mix improvised genre with the most alternative funk. Those who prefer to enjoy outdoor music should take note of Banyalbujazz, the festival which is held in the cosy coastal town of Banyalbufar.
Mallorca also has a wide range of events for those who enjoy dancing to the most current songs. Events like the Summer Pie or the Mallorca Live Festival head the list of the most famous festivals held in Palma with a more national and international group of artists that bring together in a combination of styles designed to suit all tastes.
Whether it’s classical music, jazz or current hits, any season is good to enjoy a good concert with your loved ones while discovering the diverse cultural options you’ll find in this Mediterranean destination.
