Every summer, at the end of July, Pollensa hosts one of the most popular festivals in Mallorca – La Patrona. This year La Patrona begins on the 25th July, and ends on the 2nd August with a full week of excitement and festivities, including childrens entertainment, demonstrations of sporting activities, concerts and parties. The highlight of the festival each year is the mock battle between the Christians and the Moors through the streets of the town, and the fireworks that follow this chaotic event.
We would like to give you a more detailed breakdown of the schedule for the coming week of the Festival, so that you don’t miss a thing…
This year, the Festival de Pollensa is in its 53rd year and highlighted with a mix of contemporary Flamenco music, “new symphonic music”, traditional folk music sounds with rock, cinematic events… just to name a few. Pollensa will be transformed again this summer, as every summer, into the central cultural space of the Balearic Islands. The festival is not to be missed!
Here at Rodemann & Wood, we know how important it is to immerse ourselves in a variety of cultures and to enjoy the arts. We want to share these privileges with our clients, and want to inform you of the two Grammy Award-winning Kool & the Gang, performing in Mallorca on the 21 August.
Kool & the Gang, who will be performing in Mallorca on 21.08.14
Kool & the Gang will be celebrating their greatest hits including, ‘Get down on it’, ‘Celebration’ and ‘Jungle Boogie’, which was featured in the 1994 film, Pulp Fiction. They will be performing in the glamorous setting of Port Adriano in the South West of the island, just a short distance down the coast from Santa Ponça.
Kool & the Gang have sold over 70 million albums and have influenced the music of three generations. They have performed continuously over the last 35 years, longer than any other R&B group in history. Originally from New Jersey, USA, a group of neighbourhood friends joined together to create the musical blend of jazz, soul and funk that we now know as Kool & the Gang.
The show will commence at 22:00 until 00:00 and the tickets are priced €42; these can be bought from Ticketmaster or from the Port office in Port Adriano.
