Country festivals are on time in Spain this summer, offering an attractive cocktail of live music and festive atmosphere. If you’re passionate about country music, relaxed and friendly ambience, and a variety of activities and entertainment, you definitely can’t miss a country festival during the summer, like the ones coming up in Spain.
We are referring to the Huercasa Country Festival, a musical event of reference that will take place in Riaza (Segovia) on 14 and 15 July 2023, and the Salardú Country Rock Festival, which from 24 to 27 August 2023 will pay tribute to country music in the spectacular setting of the Valle de Aran, in the Lleida Pyrenees.
Both festivals are a great opportunity for a very pleasant summer getaway, enjoying country music and other fun activities in a natural setting. Let’s take a look at what both events have to offer this year.
Country festivals: Huercasa 2023, your appointment in July.
The Huercasa country festival is a musical event that takes place in Riaza, a municipality located in the province of Segovia, Spain. It is one of the most prominent festivals in Spain dedicated to country music and other related genres such as bluegrass, folk and rockabilly.
Guest artists are usually national and international, both established and emerging, offering a wide variety of live performances of styles within the genre. This year’s line-up includes The Sheepdogs, Jesse Daniel, Tennessee Jet, The Sadies, Eilen Jewell, Robert Finley, La Perra Blanco, Red Beard, Anna Duke and Mikel Renteria & The wop Band.
As we said, the Huercasa 2023 Country Festival will be held on 14 and 15 July, and in addition to the performances of the featured artists, the programme includes parallel activities such as workshops, country dance classes and music and dance exhibitions. It also offers a variety of complementary activities for attendees, such as food and local product tastings, craft stalls, children’s activities and an overall festive atmosphere.
The Huercasa Country Festival offers two unique stages to enjoy the music and festive atmosphere:
- Huercasa Stage: in the ‘Campo de Fútbol Municipal Las Delicias’, located in the Avenida de Madrid, next to the Riaza campsite. This stage is strategically located just a few minutes from the centre of the town and is surrounded by beautiful green areas and vegetation that characterise the surroundings.
- Plaza Mayor Stage: in the heart of Riaza, in the famous Plaza Mayor. This place is a regular meeting point for both visitors and locals. During the Huercasa Country Festival, this space is transformed to acquire the personality of the event and the festive character that characterises it.
Both the Huercasa Stage and the Plaza Mayor Stage offer unique experiences within the Huercasa Country Festival. Whether you prefer the tranquillity of the green spaces next to the football pitch or the lively energy of the Plaza Mayor, both stages will give you the opportunity to enjoy the best country music and immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere of the festival.
Salardú Country Rock Festival 2023: your date in August.
The rhythm of country music fuses with the energy of rock in an event that captivates lovers of both genres. The Salardú Country Rock Festival, held in the picturesque Valle de Aran, located in the stunning surroundings of the Lleida Pyrenees, is a musical event that combines passion for music, nature and fun for the whole family.
This year 2023, the Salardú Country Rock Festival will be held on 24, 25, 26 and 27 August, and as always, it combines a vibrant musical atmosphere with the beauty of a privileged natural environment, creating a truly magical experience in a welcoming and communal atmosphere.
The festival offers an exciting fusion of two musical genres that have deep roots in American culture: country and rock. Local and international artists come together at the Salardú Country Rock Festival to provide attendees with an unforgettable musical experience. From the melodic chords of traditional country to the guitar riffs and energy of rock, there is a wide range of styles and rhythms to suit all tastes.
In its eighth edition, the Salardú Country Rock Festival offers performances by artists such as Jason Blaine, Erick Ethridge, Kalsey Kulyk, Raihanna Estrada, Ray Scott, The Abrams, Sarah Jory & The Uband and Versión Imposible.
There will also be complementary activities such as country workshops by the best choreographers, who will present new choreographies for non-stop dancing: don’t forget your cowboy boots and cowboy hat!
The grilled food is another of the attractions of this festival, as it offers its own restaurant with a mixture of typical American and Aranese food: the star dish is a spectacular roast, cooked on the grill for more than 24 hours. The youngest members of the family will also enjoy a children’s area with many attractions and activities specially designed for them.
