With the arrival of summer, outdoor concerts and festivals they become one of the favorite plans of music lovers to enjoy summer evenings with a good rhythm. However, El Bierzo is not exactly one of the favorite destinations for large groups to visit during their tours …
Therefore, many of those who are reading these lines will have resorted on occasion to a fleeting ‘getaway’ to a province and even a neighboring Autonomous Community to be able to enjoy the concert of your favorite artist or one of those festivals whose poster awakens the sparkle in your eyes.
For this reason, and because there are already two concerts planned in Ponferrada that have had to be suspended (such as the one in Natalia Lacunza) or be postponed (it was the case of Stool, which will take place in September), in InfoBierzo we compile some of the most remarkable musical appointments a few hours away – from two to just over three hours by car – and that in many cases you can take advantage of to enjoy a refreshing day in some of the nearby beaches that we collect in this other report (CLIC), putting the final icing on your visit with the best live music.
Of course, all of them guarantee compliance with sanitary hygiene measures within the framework of the safe culture.
Of course, before starting to collect other destinations, it is worth remembering the next ones concerts that will visit El Bierzo this summer:
- The Auditorium Nights They will receive in the capital of Bercia the Banda Eléctrica de Ponferrada, a night of rock from Bercia with local groups, Fuel Fandango, Mala Rodríguez, and the comic ‘show’ of Grisom Beatbox and Jaime Caravaca.
- Thorn Fest offers a ‘great plan’ for lovers of music and good vibes in Vega de Espinareda.
- Pol 3.14 will stop at Las Ventas de Alvares by the hand of ‘Impacto Evento’.
