The new edition of Isla Bonita Love Festival announces the opening of the bases for the participation of Palmeros artists in its 2024 edition. This festival, which has become a benchmark in the island’s cultural agenda, offers a unique platform for local talent.

The CEO of Sodepal, Miriam Perestelo, highlighted the importance of this initiative, as the Festical is “an exceptional platform to showcase and support local talent. We want to give artists from La Palma the opportunity to showcase their creativity and share the stage with big names in music. This project reaffirms our commitment to the culture and artistic development of our island”.

The call for entries, which begins today and will be open until 16 July 2024, seeks to select up to two artists, bands or DJs resident on La Palma. Participants must submit original songs or compositions for the chance to share the stage with the festival’s guest artists.

A jury composed of representatives of the Escuela Insular de Música, the artistic director of the Isla Bonita Love Festival, two artists from La Palma and a technician from Sodepal will evaluate the proposals. The evaluation criteria will include originality, musical quality, interpretation and live performance potential. The results will be communicated to the selected artists within a maximum of three working days after the closing of the call.
