The Ronda International Guitar Festival is an annual week-long festival dedicated to music and the Spanish Guitar. The Spanish guitar is a beautiful instrument born and developed in Spain. It is a world ambassador of Spanish music. We are delighted to celebrate in Ronda, the treasure and legacy that is the Spanish guitar; a great promoter of Spanish culture!
The third edition of the Ronda International Guitar Festival will take place between the 5th and the 9th of June 2018.
During the festival, there will be two concerts each evening (a total of ten concerts). The performing artists for the 2018 edition have been invited from Spain, Italy, Holland, USA, Croatia, Bulgaria, Germany and France. The festival strives to highlight the versatility and diversity of styles that the guitar embraces: classical, romantic, flamenco, jazz and contemporary. Appealing and attractive to the musical tastes of a wide audience.
There is also a daytime program with an exhibition of artisan guitar makers, mini midday concerts and afternoon conferences with a variety of speakers who offer relevant topics to anyone interested in the guitar.
All the festival’s activities will be held at the Congress and Exhibition Centre “Santo Domingo” in the heart of the historical old-town of Ronda, Spain. Ronda is a unique city, romantic and fascinating. A place in which nature and culture unite to exhibit the best of both worlds. Ronda and the guitar are a delightful combination!
