14th Edition Lanzarote Visual Music Festival 2017

The perfect combination of new music and a unique volcanic landscape…

The Lanzarote Visual Music Festival was created in 1989, following a suggestion made by artist Ildefonso Aguilar and sponsored by the Cabildo of Lanzarote. The Festival is an outstanding artistic event based on the combination of avant-garde music with different artistic forms of expression in perfect harmony with the unique features of the natural stage landscapes of Lanzarote, such as the Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes Auditoriums.

From the get-go of the Festival, the perfect combination of new music and a unique volcanic landscape, drew the interest of contemporary musicians such as Brian Eno and Michael Brook, among others, which helped this Festival become one of the most attractive and extraordinary avant-garde music events in the world during its 13 consecutive editions that went from 1989 to 2002.

In this edition of the Festival, to be held from 3 to 21 October, 2017, the programme will consist of six main concerts that will be held in the Auditoriums of Jameos del Agua, Cueva de los Verdes and Convento de Santo Domingo, as well as other gatherings, training sessions and film screenings that will take place at the Cultural Innovation Centre El Almacén.

Besides these main spaces, there are other stages where concerts are held, such as Volcán del Cuervo, the old volcanic ash quarry of Montaña de Tahíche and the convent, Convento de San Francisco in Teguise, as well as the Iglesia de San Ginés church and Playa de El Reducto in Arrecife.
