About the Festival

The Atlantic Festival celebrates everything flamenco: a powerful and passionate culture, where stomping feet, coiling wrists, guitar melodies and soulful song are the trademark. During the Festival there will be free concerts, local talent features, workshops, and an amazing gala featuring flamenco dancer Joaquin Grilo, voted best flamenco dancer in Spain, along with local favorites Maria Osende Flamenco and Compania Azul. Feel the Passion. Fall for Flamenco!
