Current suspends bullfighting vermouths and concerts in the Fundición Room

The Actual Festival 2022, which will be held from January 2 to 8 in Logroño, reports the adoption of different anti-COVID measures, in order to adapt to the new security protocols decreed by the Government of La Rioja to guarantee the celebration of the 32nd edition in conditions of total safety for the public and artists.

As a general premise, it is reconfigured towards a programming exclusively focused on music, film and arts shows, and an organization focused on health security that takes as its premise the experience of the successful 2021 edition and the effectiveness in the application of the protocols in the different venues where it will take place, to guarantee a Safe Culture experience every day.

As the main novelty, the festival announces the postponement of the cycle of Vermús concerts that were to be held at Bodegas Franco Españolas at noon and that include a combined experience of live music, wine and gastronomy.

In this way, Actual is taking into consideration the recommendation to avoid restoration activities and announces the celebration of this cycle on a new date throughout the year 2022, when the health situation is more favorable. After analyzing different options, the festival finally wants to preserve the essence of one of its already emblematic cycles, which for this edition had sold practically all the tickets.

The organization will proceed in the next few days to enable the ticket return process to its buyers through its own sales channels, as a previous step to reconfiguring the program on new dates.

Continuing with the news, Actual informs of the suspension of the Film Marathon, scheduled for the night of January 5, and whose format and night hours are incompatible with the new framework of measures and recommendations decided by the Government of La Rioja.

Likewise, it also informs of the suspension of the concert program planned in the Fundición Hall within the Off Actual cycle, and of the concert on the 8th in the Stereo Hall, in these cases in an exercise of responsibility from the promoters of these venues, where the typology of those concerts and of the halls themselves did not guarantee compliance with the safety regulations in force at this time.

Sanitary security

Except for these incidents, Actual Festival will develop a program that has more than 40 Music, Film and Performing Arts shows in its entirety during the scheduled dates.

The new festival was designed taking as a reference the successful edition of 2021, held without incident last January in the worst environment of the pandemic, and that precaution is what allows now to carry out the bulk of the programming in conditions of total health security.

The other key endorsement has been the choice of different scenic spaces (Riojaforum, Breton Theater, La Rioja Museum, Gonzalo de Berceo Room …) that throughout the year 2021 have hosted dozens of cultural shows from the rigor in the application of protocols and sanitary measures, and without having registered any outbreak or positive case.

With the festival already adapted to the different security protocols in force and the experience of the last edition, the other main novelty to comply with the new regulations will be the request for the COVID Certificate to spectators aged 12 or over who want access any of the shows.
