The first GRANADA EXPERIENCE GASTRO Edition set the bar high with Sergi Arola’s involvement and now we can reveal which chef will inherit Arola’s kitchen tools. 

The second GASTRO Edition will be dedicated to products known simply as “Granada Flavor”, with six exclusive “Tapas” created by none other than Jorge Brazalez (known as the winner of MasterChef 5 in Spain). These Tapas can be sampled outside the festival hub of Palacio de Congresos in the square hosted by Cervezas Alhambra, being available to everyone in the city to enjoy.

The Cervezas Alhambra Stage offers a wide live music program from Thursday to Saturday (12-14th April) at lunchtime . It’s all about enjoying music, a cool Alhambra Beer and savoring this year’s GRANADA EXPERIENCE Tapas! The Cervezas Alhambra Stage proved last year that it’s a great way to discover new bands and artists, since the first edition, those acts have gone on to become part of the national festival circuit throughout 2017.

Bands like QuentinGas, The Zingers, Leicomers or Ukulele Clan Band  should make way for the next wave of new Granadian and Andalusian bands. Additionally, this stage will not only receive emerging bands, but this year’s will show artists already getting booked for medium-sized and big venues, namely more established acts like Doubles, Smile, The Limboos and Carmen Boza.
