It has been  almost  two weeks over that the first Pueblos Blancos Music  Festival happened in the white villages in Andalusia. Phil Plata  is back in Austin, Juan is back working down in Montejaque and  I am back in Madrid. We need to enjoy some free time  to  think if we will  be ready again for next  year´s edition or this  was just a dream that happened once in a lifetime.

Our goal to create an  international encounter where musicians coming from all over the world to play their music and participate in this cultural exchange was  an incredible success beyond  all expectations, where during the four days  of the festival  the bands performed in different   pueblos   and venues each day. Local bands participated as well  and supported from the very beginning  with the  extra backline  needed.

The dream finally happened. Professional and semi professional bands  met together in an incredible  atmosphere of friendship and music during the four days. Every  night 6 to 8 bands were playing in different venues and after midnight jams happened every night with local musicians in Montejaque.

Many of the bands that participated came from Austin, the live music capital of the world, and the music style  mainly  in common was rock and roll, jazz, blues, country and  americana styles and this will be our goal for the future.

Big thanks to the towns of Montejaque, Ronda and Grazalema for their support. Big thanks to all musicians and bands who participated. Big thanks for all local bands and audiences  for the warm hospitality and  technical support.

We will soon be back again  and we will share many  good news  with you.

Please if you are  interested in  more details or if you are  a band interested to participate in the next edition, please  contact www.pueblosblancosmusicfestival.com and send a message to  Phil Plata, co-founder and artistic director of the  Festival anytime
