One week of techno in Malaga: FLAMA festival June 28th- 29th

BIG NEWS The city of Malaga, as is made evident by the weekly versatile events that have been piling up in the “noteworthy section”, is about to add a highly anticipated event to the mix!  One month after Foolk, the first Sonovisual festival that returned in La Termica, Malaga, everything pointed in the direction that the festival was not going to pass by unnoticed!  It introduced a plethora of workshops enriched with practical knowledge on the intersection of technology and digital arts. This type of organization, which deliberately encourages the audience to have contact with the “inner workings” of multiple media, was an act previously unheard of in these lands. 

What is the most female-friendly festival that takes place this week and is addressed to audiophiles and ravers, as well?

FLAMA

A musical project dedicated to the union of sound and image, and strengthened by the female masterminds behind its creation. Paloma Penarunia and Araceli Martin Chicano have created FLAMA with a very deliberate objective: to promote women artists and their work. One very effective way to be more outspoken and active in the integration of women in the experimental-electronic sphere of the Arts is to put together an event, celebrating success stories of local protagonists in the electronic scene
