Seville | Nocturama SouthPop Festival 2013

Nocturama 2013It’s the season for evening concerts in Seville. As well as the “Nights in the Alcázar Gardens” cycle, featuring more traditional and classical styles, the coming month sees this year’s edition of the SouthPop festival (Nocturama 2013) at the Andalucia Contemporary Arts Centre in the Cartuja monastery.

The concerts have been held here every year since their inauguration in 2006, and have showcased both new and established talents from the world of Spanish pop and international guest artistes.

Concerts are every Thursday and Friday evening (doors open at 9.00pm) from June 27 to July 26, with an additional concert on Saturday July 13, and a final concert on Wednesday July 31, featuring the farewell performance of The Baltic Sea, so come along and grab yourself some of that rock’n’roll atmosphere.

Tickets can be reserved by email or phone, or purchased at the ticket office on the night of the concert.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay we have apartments for budget conscious pop fans, apartments for hippies, and even apartments for aspiring rock stars.


Seville | Alcázar Gardens Night Concerts 2013

noches alcazar 2013Every summer, starting this year on June 19 and continuing every night until September 1, the gardens of the Alcázar Palace play host to a series of concerts with an eclectic selection of music that includes everything from the classical and traditional to folk, flamenco and even jazz and blues. These beautiful gardens create a stunning backdrop for the entertainment, and in the cool of the evening it’s a perfect place to sit and relax, with nothing to do except enjoy the music and the surroundings.

Tickets are available from the palace ticket office in the Patio de Banderas for €5, or online for €6 (this year for the first time you can print out the tickets at home). You can buy up to 7 tickets per concert (note: children under 8 are not admitted).

Concerts start at 10.30 pm (last entrance 10.25), but you can go into the gardens from 9.00 pm and enjoy a cold beer and a stroll around the gardens – definitely worth seeing as the day fades to dusk.
