Although the most longed for moment of the year for the people of Seville takes place in the Real de la Feria with the arrival of the beautiful and traditional Feria de Abril (April Fair), there is also an event that takes place every two years that is noted in red in the diaries of the commercial establishments and above all, those lovers of flamenco and the Biennial Flamenco Festival in Seville.
It takes place between 8th September and 2nd October, and the Seville Biennial Flamenco Festival is something like the most pure example of flamenco culture in the region, the community and indeed, Spain. A meeting with an international character that comes to life for and because of flamenco and which attracts every two years thousands of spectators and around fifty world-renowned flamenco artists. Something like a hugh showcase of musical tradition, pure and unadulterated, which in 2016 celebrates its 18 eighteenth edition with artists of the most pure flamenco to those who are experimental and take risks.
