Festival Suggestions in October
Summer is slowly turning into the Autumn-Winter season. This new period opens with a series of festival proposals in Madrid, of different sorts. Today we’re going to tell you about the most interesting ones for us.
The frog day
Behind this very original name you can find an event organised by the Barrio de las Letras Shopkeeper Association for the 1st of October. Shops and hospitality establishments plan for this day different passacaglia, workshops, visits and projections that are related to the cinema world.
From a parade of the 501st legion of Star Wars, to the projection of movies and guided visits to the Royal Theatre (30th of October), live music, tastings… the activity range is varied. In the web you can find more information.
In the area of the Malasaña and Conde-Duque’s neighbourhoods you can enjoy on the 7th and 8th of October a very interesting festival. The VillaManuela Festival is an event that combines music with gastronomy, cinema and different cultural activities.
Craig Leon, Andy Scott or The Shrines are some of the confirmed artists for this event. In addition to these concerts, there are also exhibits, gastronomic and commercial routes programmed in the area. Here you can find more details of this very interesting event.
This indie festival will take place in the Sala Clamores of Madrid on the 30th of September. The main goal behind this festival is to advertise and bring the public closer to some of the emerging artists of the pop, indie and alternative musical panorama of the Spanish capital.
In Madrid PopFest’s lineup you can enjoy artists like the British Pete Astor, Juvenilia, Yumi Yumi Hip Hop or Betacam. If you wish to have more information regarding this musical event, visit this section of the Clamores website.
