A hug is powerful. We can’t think of a better way to represent our 25th edition in 2021.
A hug is an indisputable show of love, capable of healing wounds and building lasting bridges of affection. The 25th edition of the Jerez Festival is nothing more than a wonderful act of love. An act of love for culture that has been revealed to us as indispensable in these strange times.
Love for the artists who are participating in our anniversary festival and whom today, more than ever, we must protect by embracing them with our solidarity. They helped us make the city of Jerez and its festival a home feel, for the last quarter of a century.
Love to those who will be here this year, but also to those who have made it possible for us to exist for 25 years…
CELEBRATING 25 YEARS AS THE WORLD’S GREATEST
The Festival de Jerez is the foremost Flamenco and Spanish Dance Festival in the world. In 2021, it celebrates its landmark 25th edition, making it one of the longest-running festivals of its kind, but this year, the Festival de Jerez faces a new, unprecedented challenge.
With the COVID-19 global pandemic still looming, the festival administration decided to move this year’s edition to May instead of its usual dates in February and March and also to reduce the number of productions it normally presents. Moreover to protect the well-being of artists, staff and audience the theatre capacity was reduced to 50%. The festival of Jerez usually hosts a large international contingency that flood the city Jerez de la Frontera to attend the festival’s courses and performance. Due to travel restrictions this contingency will be missed and as such the festival has partnered with two different platforms to show live streaming of its performances. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of Spain’s finest performers in their newest product from the comfort and safety of home, wherever home is.
