The Mar i jazz festival is “dressing up” the walls of Dr. Lluch park thanks to local artists and illustrators. The Cabanyal Park will be the setting for the jazz festival to be held from 10 to 12 June. The initiative once again enjoys the collaboration of Cervezas Alhambra, which continues to support live music in the city. Mar i Jazz is warming up the engines for its fourth edition and decorating its venue, the Dr. Lluch Park. Local artists Chikitin, Lluís Salvador, Inma Carpena, Pablo Kiran, Azucena González and Sig Luigi have painted the walls of the park to give them personality and colour for the festival to be held on 10, 11 and 12 June. The València City Councillor for Tourism, Emiliano García, visited the park during the intervention and supported this initiative, which will not only dress up the Cabanyal park during the festival, but will also remain there for all the residents of the neighbourhood.
‘Mar i jazz’ will bring music, culture, leisure and gastronomy to all audiences in one of the most charming neighbourhoods in Valencia. Among its scheduled concerts we will be able to see and listen to RdeRumba, Phonographe, Nino de los Reyes, Balkan Paradise Orchestra, The Sey Sisters and Pi McCarthy, among many others.
Mar i Jazz was born in 2016, created by music lovers and businessmen who own restaurants and music venues in Cabanyal, the bar Mestiza (ex “27 Amigos”) and the tavern “La Otra Parte”.
Since the beginning, it has been in close collaboration with ACIPMAR (Association of Traders and Professionals of the Marítimo), the City Council of Valencia and the Sedajazz School. In the 4th edition, the team has grown with the addition of Sagarmanta, a company based in Paterna with more than 20 years of experience in the management and organisation of events. And, for yet another year, it has the support of Cervezas Alhambra, which collaborates with the festival, inviting you to savour the best musical proposals without haste and with responsibility through unique and unrepeatable sound experiences.
