The Flamenco Biennial of Seville began in 1980 and has been getting better for 30 years bringing together the best flamenco musicians and dancers. The Flamenco Biennial lasts about 30 days and includes a multitude of venues throughout the town, from theatres to smaller establishments.
This event is held every year in July and brings together singers, guitarists and dancers of great renown and prestige. Lebrija is the cradle of the art of flamenco and the birthplace of such well-known singers as Juan Peña "El Lebrijano", who have bequeathed a valuable artistic heritage to this city.
"La Yerbabuena” Flamenco Festival was founded by Juan Bernabé Britto, Juan Peña "El Lebrijano", Miguel Acal and Pedro de Miguel Hermida, fans, artists and lovers of this universal art, with the purpose of dignifying flamenco and spreading it as the most genuine artistic cultural expression of the Andalusian people.
This is one of the most traditional flamenco festivals in the province. The Flamenco Night has been celebrated on two occasions at the theatre of Ecija. In order to truly promote the flamenco culture as a sign of identity, they prefer to give priority to the quality over the quantity of the performances.
Of all the flamenco festivals that exist in our country, the Antonio Mairena Cante Jondo (Flamenco Singing) Festival is, today, one of the benchmarks for fans, artists, critics and the specialised press. Mairena is a perfect ending to the summer singing season.
The 'Antonio Mairena' Cante Jondo Festival and Competition has been declared a festival of tourist interest.
The festival is organized by the peña (flamenco club) "Curro de Utrera". Established in 1984, it is the only flamenco club that remains in the same place after twenty-five years.
On the last Saturday of June, flamenco fans have a date in Utrera with the oldest of Spain's summer festivals, "El Potaje Gitano", which dates back to 1957. Since then, the brotherhood of the Gypsies of Utrera has paid tribute year after year to important figures of this art (Caracol, Mairena, Camarón, Fernanda and Bernarda, Lebrijano, etc.).
