The artists Iván Ferreiro and Soledad Vélez have closed this past Saturday the third edition of ‘Nits de Vivers’, a cycle that has had more than 28,000 attendees in nine musical evenings that have been held between 26 July and 5 August. In this way, the event consolidates its role as a cultural dynamo in Valencia thanks to the shows held in the Jardines de Viveros, in the heart of the city. The festival has provided a varied offer with performances by some of the most outstanding bands of the moment.
The concerts by Damien Rice (26 July), Xoel López (27 July), El Kanka (29 July), La M.O.D.A. (2 August) and Iván Ferreiro (5 August) were the most popular of the nine nights with around twenty musical groups. It should be noted that the programme included the participation of Valencian artists such as the bands Volavent, Iñigo Soler, Green Nomad, the DJs Fat Gordon and Obtuso, as well as the Chilean artist based in Valencia, Soledad Vélez.
As in previous editions, Nits de Vivers has developed a solidarity aspect to support the association ‘Àmbit Dignitat i Justícia Social’ and its ‘Rebrot’ project of social agriculture for the reintegration of people in vulnerable situations. Thus, attendees could contribute to the aforementioned initiative with the purchase of glasses and when buying a ticket for a concert. It was also possible to make a financial contribution through a “fila cero” (zero row).
The cycle also included a restaurant area to make attending the concerts a complete experience. Nits de Vivers was sponsored by El Águila beers and with the collaboration of Mediterranew Musix de Turisme Comunitat Valenciana.
