Just like previous years, A Coruña will be transformed this August to host the latest edition of the Festival Noroeste Estrella Galicia. The 2018 edition of the festival will be held from 7 to 12 August and will feature more than 80 bands and artists who will fill every corner of the city with the most eclectic range of music; from pop, rock and indie to heavy metal, avant-garde, fado, hip hop, fusion, folk, punk, noise and singer-songwriters. The line-up for the 32nd edition of the festival, which remains loyal to the contemporary roots of the festival and its commitment to the quality and singularity of all performers, includes names like Belle and Sebastian, The Pretenders, Temples, Viva Suecia, Ana Curra, Ángel Stanich, BFlecha, Capsula, Christina Rosenvinge, Escuchando Elefantes, James Holden & The Animal Spirits, La Plata, Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, Marem Ladson, Maria Arnal i Marcel Bagés, Maria del Mar Bonet, Mordem, Morgan, Nathy Peluso, Neneh Cherry, The Limboos and ZA!, among many more.
The Festival Noroeste Estrella Galicia is a unique musical event in Spain, offering an attractive programme of free, open-air concerts attracting an average audience of 60,000 people every year. Considered one of the best summer music events in the north-west of the Iberian Peninsula, the Noroeste is organised by A Coruña City Council with the collaboration of Estrella Galicia. Once again this year, the Noroeste Estrella Galicia has shown its commitment to local and Galician bands and attempts to reflect a modern and fundamentally musical city. Through the festival, A Coruña will open up to new paths, new ways of doing things and new way of looking at things; all part of its appeal as a destination for experiential, contemporary and unique tourism.
