This year’s Nerja Caves Festival, in the 55th year that it has been held, will split its performances between the caves themselves and the Balcon de Europa in Nerja. There will be a total of eight events (three more than last year), split equally between the two venues, with free entrance for the ones on the Balcon de Europa.

The announcement was made by the Mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, at the FITUR tourism trade fair being held in Madrid this week.

This year’s festival starts on Saturday the 19th of July 2014 and runs for a week, with the final performance being on the following Saturday. The opening performance is at 10pm on the Balcon de Europa with Nuria Fergó and the Malaga Symphony Orchestra.

There are three more free performances on the Balcon on the following days (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) followed by the first performance in the Caves themselves on Wednesday the 23rd of July 2014 by the Quirin Sextet. The Caves Festival continues with three more performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Full details in our Nerja Caves Festival 2014 Programme.

Last year’s festival was reduced to four performances in the caves themselves and other changes were made on the recommendation of the Cave’s Scientific Council, which aims to reduce the environmental impact of the festival. Last year’s Festival opened on the 20th of July with a concert by the Nerja Municipal Band and pianist Daniel Ligorio on the Balcon de Europa.

This was followed by performances in the caves themselves by the Strasburg classical string quartet, accompanied by renowned clarinetist Ferdinand Steiner, the Victor Ullate Ballet company celebrating its 25 years of existence, singer Pastora Soler, who is Nerja’s current Honorary Tourist, and finally Manolo Sanlúcar on the 27th.
