- The event in Manresa joins the Platea Jove scheme with local theatres for the first time
- The fair will be offering combined tickets for three of the shows at the Kursaal
The Fira Mediterrània de Manresa, with an impact on the arts and the economy of the town and the Bages area worth €13M, has revealed some of the names who will be performing at the sixteenth edition this coming November. This year’s guest artist, Jordi Savall, is joined by Kiko Veneno, originally from Figueres, the band from València Obrint Pas and the Basque Kepa Junquera, as well as the mega-production ‘Músiques en terres de cruïlla’ [literally, ‘Musics in Lands of Crossroads’], featuring leading artists like Carmen París from Aragón, the Quicos from the Ebro valley, Pep Gimeno ‘Botifarra’ and Pau Alabajos from València, Miquela Lladó from Mallorca and Claudio Gabriel Sanna from Alguer (Sardinia). The Fira will be selling combined tickets for three of the shows at the Kursaal. For the first time, the fair will be part of the ‘Platea Jove’ scheme aimed at youth audiences. Moreover, the firm commitment of private initiative, which is taking on a large part of the risk of the shows at the Kursaal, and the signing of Estrella Damm as a sponsor, will contribute to Mediterrània’s economic sustainability. One of the other venues for which part of the billing has already been released is the Teatre Conservatori, where the Basque accordionist Kepa Junkera is to appear on Saturday 9th November, sharing the stage and a project with the harpist Josep Maria Ribelles.
