Two years after its last edition and after canceling the last two editions, it returns Universal Music Fest. The music festival to be held at the Teatro Real de Madrid by Universal Music has confirmed artists such as Manuel Carrasco, Pablo Lopez The Zaz between performances.
Universal Music Festival resumes its cycle in 2022 to celebrate its sixth edition, returning with more force and more shows to become a reference festival in the capital during the summer season as it will last from May 1 to July 28.
This year’s poster joins other great stars of past seasons such as Elton John, Sting, Tom Jones, Hans Zimmer, Caetano Veloso, Tomatito, Miguel Poveda, Pablo Alborán, Miguel Ríos, Raphael or Luis Fonsi. These are the confirmed artists so far.
Manuel Carrasco (May 1): Manuel Carrasco wants to resume in 2022 the La Cruz del Mapa tour that he had to postpone because of the pandemic and that he was going to celebrate in 2020 in all the cities of Spain. The Andalusian will present his greatest hits including his most recent studio album with which he swept live in 2019.
Zaz (July 24): Zaz returns with her fifth album in fall 2021, called Isa. The French artist is preparing her next tour in the same spirit, once again touring the world and its most exclusive concert halls. Performances on a human scale and close to the public. A return to the essentials. A world tour called the Organique Tour.
Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov (July 25): Acclaimed soprano Anna Netrebko and tenor Yusif Eyvazov will take to the stage of the Royal Theater with the collaboration of baritone Elchin Azizov and musical director Michelangelo Mazza.
