Custom performance tours and festivals in Spain since 1995
Proud of organizing custom concert tours for Wind Symphonies, Concert and Marching Bands in Spain and Portugal.
Spain has a long tradition in Music and especially in wind instruments and marching bands . Valencia is one the most traditional region in Spain where every single village has a local band and towns are divided in two bands and half part of its population belongs and proudly play on one of them. Those music societies are among the oldest ones in Europe and Valencia celebrates each year the probably oldest international band competition in Europe during the month of June
Most of our concert tours for Bands are tailored ones where we adjust to the number of days available for each performance group and to the number or concerts they want to play and the cities they want to visit.

March opens the fiesta time in Spain with Las Fallas festival in Valencia and its province, for almost three intense weeks but particularly the week before March 19th, the fiesta of San Jose, patron saint of Valencia. This festivals are a break during the Lint period and as a catholic tradition country we must wait few more weeks until Easter and the Holy Week, where all the cities organize the religious parades were brotherhoods march with musicians and volunteers hanging on their shoulders the beautiful images of the Madonna and Jesus through its narrow streets.
Shortly after the city of Sevilla opens with the Feria de Abril the fiesta calendar that runs until middle of October in Zaragoza. During that period is when every city or small town celebrates the majority of its local festivities in honor to their patron saints and Madonna.
