The best disco music in the most spectacular dance floor in the world
Every Summer in Lanzarote, in one of the most spectacular sites in the word — the unbeatable natural setting of Jameos del Agua — a new edition of Jameos Music Festival is held.
Last June 28th, the first out of the 4 sessions of this music festival took place, and the rest of the sessions of this sixth edition will be offered throughout the Summer. Thanks to their careful production, the spectacular setting where it’s held and the exquisite selection of music they offer it’s become one of the best cultural offers in the Canary Islands and in Europe.
This boutique festival, of limited capacity, offers us a high quality line-up, including soulful house, disco and rare groove sounds with a mixture of soul, jazz, R&B and world Music.
Throughout the booth of this lava tube, which César Manrique turned into a spectacular Art Centre, some of the best djs in the planet have gone, the top quality djs of the club music.
The first session of Jameos Music Festiva, a real success, was loaded with percussion and African music, remixes by Jow Claussell (New York, resident of Body& Soul Clubparty), Kwenya Carreira (Madrid, funder and owner of the well-known Marula Café in the capital), Hector Mingues (Madrid) and Dj Isaacb (Fuerteventura).
