The 17th edition of the Fuerteventura en Música festival arrives

The Cabildo finalizes the preparations for the Fuerteventura en Música 2023 festival, as well as the assembly of a stage of 300 square meters in which a dozen international, national and local artists will perform during the weekend of June 30 and July 1 on the beach of La Concha de El Cotillo, municipality of La Oliva.



Likewise, the main tent of 600 square meters and the peripheral structures have been installed, such as the market area, tents for bathrooms, security and emergency area, and a perimeter fence. The land is also being smoothed and cleaned with specific machinery to be able to begin with the assembly work of the infrastructure, and the installation of sound, lighting and video equipment has begun.

"The next edition of the WEF is going at a very good pace. We appreciate the cooperation of the municipality of La Oliva and the involvement of the different services of the Cabildo, especially the Culture Council, to make viable and organize in the best way this festival, which is committed to local artists, such as Tabaiba and Althay Páez, "said President Lloret.

"We encourage the entire population to come and enjoy not only music with an important poster, such as Bomba Estéreo and La Pegatina, but also the incomparable natural environment in which we find ourselves in this new edition of the FEM," said the first island councilor.

For his part, David Hernández Martín, Councilor for Culture of La Oliva, said that the city council collaborates and supports this festival, "which is already rooted in the majorera culture, to continue promoting the FEM, which is already a mark in the Calendar, both for the municipality, as for the neighbors and visitors of Fuerteventura ".



A first-class line-up
The group Bomba Estéreo will headline on the first day, with its rhythms of electronic music fused with rock, reggae, alternative reggaeton and rap with airs of the Colombian Caribbean, such as cumbia and champeta.

The program of the first day is completed by the electronic cumbia of the Mexican Institute of Sound, a project led by Camilo Lara, one of the most influential artists in the culture of that country, with a long career; as well as with the root music of Ara Queen of Drums from Nigeria; the Canarian-Venezuelan group Tabaiba, with its urban rhythms, and the timple of the majorero Althay Páez.

The second day will headline the Spaniards of La Pegatina, with rhythms ranging from merengue to rumba or ska to gypsy punk or hooligan chants, as well as the Canijo de Jerez, who between clapping and guitars will put the flamenco and rock note of the festival.

The programming of the second day is completed with the R&B of the Nigerian Ruth Mahogany; the Canarian Mel Ömana, with his rhythms of Cuban folklore and Latin rap, and the majoreros Saylén and Abora Reggae.

Likewise, this edition of the FEM includes a parallel program of activities organized by the Ministry of Culture together with the cultural association Cotillo Joven to energize the town of El Cotillo, which will take place on June 30, and July 1 and 2.

The program begins with a parade on Friday, June 30, at 19:00 p.m. from the Plaza de El Cotillo, and will continue throughout the weekend with musical workshops for all ages, children's environmental workshops and musical performances.

In collaboration with the City Council of La Oliva, the Cabildo will take the festival to this natural environment, which, as since its inception, will continue to have a vocation for environmental awareness and indie spirit.

Fuerteventura En Música manages to gather about 6,000 people on the first night.

The first night of the Fuerteventura en Música (FEM) festival brought together about 6,000 people at Playa de la Concha in El Cotillo. The attendees danced to the rhythm of the headliner, Bomba Estéreo, which did not disappoint followers and new audiences.





The first night of the festival starts
The music of the first night of the FEM started with a parade by the band The Plunger Dixie Band, which began its journey in the Plaza de la Iglesia to end it on the stage of the festival in Playa de la Concha. His lively songs served as a claim for the first people who approached the festival environment and left everything ready to start the 17th edition of the FEM.

Althay Páez was in charge of kicking off the concerts, which lasted until 04.00 in the morning. The virtuoso timplista majorero thrilled with his live performances, which included songs from his first album Sosa Pereira.

Then, it was the turn of the first of the groups that act in the FEM thanks to the collaboration of Casa África. The Nigerian Ara Queen of the Drums infected the audience with her African voice and percussion, being the first woman to have played the traditional Nigerian 'talking drum'.

Subsequently, the Mexican Institute of Sound, led by the charismatic Camilo Lara, brought the FEM audience to its feet with its irresistible rhythms that fill dance floors around the world.



FEM receives BomBa Estéreo
The most anticipated moment came at midnight, with the appearance on stage of Bomba Estéreo. The Colombian musical group showed its talent by mixing electronic, rock, reggae, alternative reggaeton, rap and cumbia, before a totally dedicated audience in one of the most remembered nights of the festival.



The finishing touch was put by the Canarian / Venezuelan group, who followed the witness of the miscegenation of genres such as ska, cumbia or funk. A powerful and daring live show that served to end the first night of the FEM, closing with DJ Session: DJ Paradise and DJ Enma Play.

It’s a crime to hold this event on such an amazing beach. Arguably the best in Fuerteventura. I was staying once in the little house next to La concha when the Musica was on. There are literally thousands of people using the surrounding area as a toilet! The next morning the place was scattered with toilet roll and sh*t and stunk of urine. Most of the sparse vegetarian here was trampled down and destroyed.
They could easily hold this event on baron waste grounds between Cotillo and El Roque, thus avoiding the environmental damage this event causes.

I agree. Do you know why there was a Police helicopter hovering over El Roque and Cotillo for about an hour yesterday evening (Saturday)?

The joy of La Pegatina infects the public of the second night of Fuerteventura in Music


Around twelve thousand people gathered during the two days of concerts of the Fuerteventura en Música festival, in a successful edition that counted for the second time with day activities. This Saturday, the town of El Cotillo began to cheer up from noon with music, workshops, percussion and African dance.



El Muellito was once again the busiest area, with performances by local artists 5 Nclave, DJ Sudakita, DJ J.E.R.I and the Canarian artists Hey Chabón. Rhythms from different cultures converged before a dedicated audience. Also the Plaza del Cotillo with workshops of traditional Canarian dance, dance and African percussion, as well as activities of environmental vocation.



The concerts of the night began with the urban sounds of the majorero Saylen, who provided 45 minutes of his lyrics loaded with Canarian expressions that captured the attention of the most native audience. The singer gave way to the majorero musicians of Abora Reggae, who traveled between reggae, soul and Funky, and invited to the stage collaborators such as Agustín Lapertosa of Hey Chabón or the members of Chocolate Sexy. Subsequently, the Nigerian Ruth Mahogany conquered the public with her combination of poetry and classic afrobeat.



After Mahogany's African roots, came the cheerful songs of Canijo de Jerez, which encouraged his most loyal audience after years of career in Los Delinqüentes and his subsequent solo career. During his concert, he presented songs from his new album Cenizas y barro, which highlights his first single Empezar de cero.







After the Canijo, the audience eagerly received the Catalan group La Pegatina, which made those present jump with their carefree sounds that vary between rumba, ska or merengue. His hits Lloverá y yo veré, Y volar and Mari Carmen made the stage vibrate, in one of the happiest FEM nights of all its editions.







The closing was in charge of the Canarian Mel Ömana, who made the attendees dance with her Latin rap and her lyrics that speak of freedom and equality. The WEF was followed by the DJ Session: DJ Paradise and DJ Enma Play. A perfect finishing touch to a massive festival that welcomed the summer combining music, environmental awareness and nature.
