ADRA is now confirmed as the venue for this summer’s The Juergas Rock festival.
Mayor Manuel Cortes has signed a collaboration agreement with the company organising the three-day event, which will run from August 6 to 8.
“The council has worked intensively since the day after the close of The Juergas Rock 2019 so the festival is celebrated yet another year in our town”, the Mayor commented.
Cortes described the event as “the biggest rock musical festival of the summer in Almeria province, and consequently a catalyst for the town given the massive number of people who come every year to enjoy good music in a privileged location in Adra with views of the sea.”
It was therefore, the Mayor stressted, “very important for us to reach an agreement with the organisers to keep this festival in Adra this year.”
Cortes “thanked” the organisers for continuing to back Adra “for the celebration of such an important event which has such an important impact on local tourism, culture and the economy.
“Every edition we take stock, which reflects that the celebration of The Juergas Rock Festival generates a very important impact for the municipality, with the creation of hundreds of direct and indirect jobs”, he added.
“What’s more it impacts very positively on our trade and hospitality sectors, and we support any event which develops this sector.”
