Pablo López Opens Cap Roig With His Stormy Unikornio
Cap Roig resumes its pulse this Friday as a high place in the summer festival circuit, after the forced suspension of 2020, with the intense voice of Pablo López and the repertoire of his recent album ‘Unikornio’.
His songbook of high emotional voltage, with which the singer and composer from Malaga exorcises his feelings from the vantage point of success and talks about the addiction to beauty, thus puts the portico on a program that will run until August 21, with the closing by Sara Baras.
The Calella de Palafrugell festival returns with a poster based on the autochthonous ‘star system’ that has already demonstrated its power of attraction before starting to walk: the tickets for 16 of the 21 concerts are sold out, and so far more have been sold of 33,000 locations.
Cap Roig operates this year with a grandstand expanded to 2,500 seats (compared to 2,118 in the 2019 edition) that will be occupied with a cap of 65%, which represents some 1,600 seats.
Farewell to Perales
After the premiere with Pablo López, who will perform accompanied by his band, almost three months after his series of seven concerts at the Coliseum, the festival offers this weekend another two hooks of distant musical aesthetics: Raphael, with his 60º recital career anniversary (on Saturday) and Els Amics de les Arts, within the tour ‘El senyal que Esperanza’.
From now on, Cap Roig offers artists from the pop sphere such as Manel (July 30), Antonio Orozco (August 2), José Luis Perales on his farewell tour (6), Love of Lesbian (11), David Bisbal (12), Sílvia Pérez Cruz (17) or Sopa de Cabra (18). The complications derived from the fifth pandemic wave took away the tour of the British Passenger and the recital that was due to offer on August 3.
The lyrical touch of the show will be provided by the Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez (making his debut at Cap Roig on July 31), and there will be shows for family audiences with El Pot Petit (9) and Mag Lari (15). The closing show, by Sara Baras, will have a solidarity character, for the benefit of Cáritas and the educational projects for children at risk of social exclusion in Palafrugell and Baix Empordà.
A multiplied ‘village’
The festival, organized by the promoter Clipper’s Live with the encouragement of CaixaBank, has not only expanded the stands; also the enclosure destined to the restoration , the ‘village’, six times bigger than other years in attention to the last sanitary regulations.
The gastronomic offer, including the traditional restaurant, runs one more year in charge of Vía Veneto. The ‘village’ will open every concert day at 6.30 p.m. and will include its own schedule of performances, with young artists such as Curricé, from ‘La Voz’, and Jxta Martín, who will offer two shows, at 7.15 p.m. and 8.30 p.m.
