  • Enjoy the music at a unique festival, which brings the best of Pop-Music to Badajoz and Alburquerque.

    Contempopránea – the indie festival par excellence in Extremadura – would like to invite you to discover just how different it is to other large festivals. You can enjoy concerts in an ideal atmosphere for this kind of festival, which welcomes hundreds of "contempopraries" every year with open arms.

    A festival that will have a new venue in 2014: Badajoz. It will take place against two exceptional backdrops: the Badajoz Alcazaba citadel and the slopes of Alburquerque Castle; besides the great atmosphere, you'll also hear the best indie-pop music as there's a quality line-up every year. Contempopránea will be now held on two separate dates at these two venues – in June and July; and whether you decide to combine them or go to just one, you'll want to repeat this unique, quality festival.

    The first is in Badajoz in June and, more specifically, in the Alcazaba citadel – a Monument of Historic and Artistic Interest Top bands from the national and international indie scene will appear there. Apart from the concerts, you can wander around the old town of Badajoz and camp at La Granadilla sports complex. From there, you can get shuttle buses that connect the camping area to the festival ground at the Alcazaba citadel. If you prefer, the ample range of hotels in Badajoz can provide accommodation for all tastes and pockets.

    If you decide to repeat in July, you have a date in Alburquerque. The festival organisers have always supported up-and-coming bands, so it is a memorable event if you want to discover bands of the future accompanied by top Spanish groups.

    The Alburquerque Council also provides a free camping area next to the municipal pools. It has a shaded area, showers, WCs and extensive parking facilities. This camping area is open to festival goers a day before it starts and one day after. You don't need to show your festival ticket to get into it and you don't need to book. You just arrive, camp and enjoy the good music!
