The Friends of the Arts, Sopa de Cabra, Carlos Sadness, Marina Rossell, Xiula, Pasión Vega, The Other Side, Miquel Abras, David Otero and Maria José Llergo are some of the artists who will perform this August in the second edition of the festival Som de Mar, which is held in the gardens of Santa Clotilde in Lloret de Mar.
The director of the festival, Carles Gilibets, claimed the “eclectic, different and varied” commitment of the poster and for small-format concerts, given that there will only be 500 tickets per show. “We will not expand the capacity and the artists are already coming up with the idea of doing a concert with a limited audience,” said Gilibets about the festival, which has already put tickets for the first artists announced for sale.
Pasión Vega will be the artist who will open the festival, where he will present his latest album, Todo lo que tengo. The new member of El Canto del Loco, David Otero, will also present a new work; Miquel Abras; The Friends of the Arts and Goat Soup.
As in the previous edition, the festival will also have a day dedicated to a tribute and another to a family show. The band The Other Side will pay tribute to Pink Floyd and, as for the family group, Whistle will offer “a journey through different moments of parenting.” This will be the only concert that will take place at an early hour, at half past nine in the evening, with the intention that the little ones can go, and the rest of the concerts will all take place at ten in the evening.
However, in the coming days some artists can be added to this poster and therefore extend the dates of the contest. Organizers explain that there are musicians who are not agreeing to concerts pending restrictions and the evolution of the pandemic.
The Som de Mar festival closed its first edition with four concerts with sold out tickets and 3,800 attendees, which accounted for filling 78% of the capacity.
According to the data of the organization, the musical event achieved 950,000 euros of total brand impact on social networks and traditional media.
