The White Night of flamenco is celebrated this year 2020 the night of June 20 to 21 in the capital. As in other editions, there will be many concerts spread throughout the city. They are all outdoor concerts with free entrance, so that we can all enjoy this party.
Some of the places chosen in previous years are the Plaza de las Tendillas, the Plaza de la Corredera, the Patio de los Naranjos, the Puerta del Puente, etc. Emblematic places to enjoy a night of flamenco outdoors.
Many artists have gone through previous editions, such as José Mercé, Estrella Morente, Raimundo Amador, Tomasito, India Martinez … Last year one of the stellar performances was that of Rosalía, who performed in the Plaza de Toros at 12 o’t at night.
This year this celebration is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic
Last year the party is dedicated to women, and they were the main protagonists in all the shows. A way to vindicate the role of women in the history of flamenco. In 2020 it is yet to present the artists poster and the theme, in Siente Cordoba we will keep you informed.
Where are the performances
The places chosen for the shows are the Plaza de las Tendillas, El Patio de San Basilio, Plaza de la Juventud, Plaza de Toros (where it can be accessed only by invitation), the surroundings of the Torre de la Calahorra, the Patio de los Naranjos (within the Mosquee), the emblematic Plaza de San Agustín, the Compass of San Francisco, the Plaza de la Corredera, the Plaza del Potro and the Jardines del Alcázar (entering through the access of the riverbank).
Safety on The White Night of flamenco
To preserve security on the White Night of flamenco, the organization often decentralizes the shows. This measure seeks to promote mobility and better ensure safety in each of the concerts.
The Rosalía concert held in the Plaza de Toros, the City Council managed access to the 10,000 people that allows the capacity by delivering invitations. To avoid crowds, the concert was streamed in another part of the city, for whom he was unable to attend the Plaza.
