FESTA MAJOR D’ANDORRA LA VELLA 2019

Del August 2al August 5

Andorra la Vella’s Festa Major kicks off in August with fun and festivities for both young and old alike.

The Andorran capital Andorra la Vella will hold its Festa Major the first weekend in August, with a vast array of fun activities for both children and adults.
The streets and squares will be filled with entertainment and a variety of different musical styles. Dance and folklore, the circus, parades and many more surprises begin on the evening of Friday the 2nd and will last until the morning of Monday the 5th of August.

Music is one of the main stars of the festivities. Plaça del Poble will host the dances accompanied by an orchestra and Plaça Guillemó will be the setting for concerts for the young and not-so-young ready to let their hair down. Gertrudis and Pepet i Marieta will be performing on this stage on Friday night. The next day it will be the turn of Els Catarres and Pachawa Sound. On Sunday there will be the Gran Ball de Festa Major, the customary grand dance, with music from the traditional music ensemble La Principal de la Bisbal and cover band DeNoche.

This year’s closing concert will feature Colombian pop band Morat, on Monday night at the Parc Central car park marquee. Tickets on sale at www.andorralavella.ad.
