La Bisbal vibrates with the Empordà Music Festival

August 2022

Nearly 4,000 people enjoyed, chanted, danced and celebrated together at the Music Festival of Empordà! The first edition was held on Saturday, July 30th in la Bisbal, and the only way in which it can be described is as a great success. More than 10 hours of non-stop music with the best bands, in a festival hosted by the cultural association Els Voltors along with Transport Solés as a partner.


At 6:00 pm the atmosphere already filled the air in the parking lot of the old soccer field with Zzoilo and his big hit “Mon Amour” opening the festival. The performances followed with groups like Lágrimas de Sangre, La Fúmiga or Zoo; the orchestra Di-versiones, DJs Carles Pérez and Kharloss Selektah, who closed the festival well into the very early hours of Sunday 31st.


“We are delighted to have contributed in making the Empordà Music Festival a reality. It has been a genuine musical event in the Baix Empordà, with a luxurious line-up of artists devoted to their audience… and the audience devoted to the music,” comments Francesc Xavier Solés, head of Transports Solés. “I can testify that the atmosphere was at 200% until the wee morning hours,” he adds. “And if instead of a blog article, this were an Instagram post, we would add an emoticon with a wink 😉.”


The concert took place at the former soccer field of la Bisbal and the walking street: Passeig Marimon Asprer. It offered all services and facilities so that the public would not have to cease enjoying the music, including chill-out area, “food trucks” and bar. There was a “village” zone to relax between concerts with gastronomic spaces and booths.


The Councelor of Enterprise from la Generalitat de Catalunya, Roger Torrent, along with authorities from la Bisbal and from the Consell Comarcal of Baix Empordà, visited the site at the invitation of Transport Solés. Afterwards, they attended the start of the festival and enjoyed the inaugural performance of Zzoilo.


The stupendous reception of the Empordà Music Festival makes us suspect that it may become one of the major Summer events of Empordà-Costa Brava. We will eagerly wait for news from the organizing association, Els Voltors, which has celebrated its 25th anniversary with this great festival.


And… while we were writing this article, we have received confirmation! Stay tuned, because in 2023 there will be a second EMF!
