Mayor of Mogán, Onalia Bueno, and the Councilor for Culture, Grimanesa Pérez, have announced this week that a new festival ‘Puerto Música’ is to be held 15-17 February 2019.

A weekend set to fill Playa de Mogán with various music concerts of several styles and that will feature, in association with the popular Las Palmas based Big Bang festival, a vintage market, vintage dance workshops, children’s activities and an exhibition of vintage cars.

The well-known area of ​​La Puntilla, located at the end of the beach avenue, is to feature 18 concerts and two parades at which residents and tourists can enjoy all kinds of musical styles.

During the daytime, in addition to using the universal language of music as a link between the different peoples and cultures that congregate in Mogán, there will be a range of vintage styles on display with a market, dance workshops and children’s activities to transport you to an era of yesteryear, surrounded by the beautiful setting of Puerto de Mogán, known as the Little Venice of Gran Canaria.

The project has been created in collaboration with the Business Association of Playa de Mogán and with the support of the hotel sector. Much of this tourist-residential location is what is known as an “open commercial area” and one of the objectives of the project is to energise these spaces.
