takes place in the city between the 20th and 28th July
. Very different styles such as boogie, futuristic jazz, techno, singer-songwriter music, neofolk, joik and fusion will shake the foundations of old Carthage. Get ready to travel around the world thanks to its sounds.
The two main stages are the Parque Torres Auditorium -from which the locality's port and the impressive archaeological remains of the Roman theatre can be admired- and the El Batel Auditorium -an exceptional watchtower by the Mediterranean-. Other stages for the festival are the Arab castle, the City Hall square, the Icue and the San Francisco squares, La Mar Chica
, and the ruins of the Old Cathedral, all of them strategic locations to enjoy your leisure time while diving into history.
