Summer Concerts on Tenerife Have Something for all Tastes

Mon, June 2nd, 2014 - By Colin

Whatever floats your musical boat, chances are you will find it in Tenerife no matter what your age. Often the posters, and graffiti announcements on the motorway are sparse on details such as times, prices etc so here’s the nitty gritty on some of the big events this summer.

If you are looking to book for shows and concerts, the best websites are General Tickets  and Ticket Master. Both have several language options. If you find yourself in Santa Cruz, the multi-layered El Corte Ingles department store by the bus station has it’s own ticket agency downstairs, and in Los Cristianos you can get most tickets from Halcon Viajes travel agents in the Valdes Centre.

 

 

FRI 6 & SAT 7 JUNE – BUIKA , Magma Arte Y Congresos, Costa Adeje, 9.30 pm.
The Mallorca born singer brings her fusion of flamenco, soul, and jazz to Costa Adeje for two nights. Tickets are €35 and €55 and can be bought from www.generaltickets.com or the Magma Arte Y Congresos  box office, next to the Playa de Las Americas bus station, open Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm or call (+34) 902 109 974.

A good date to see this new sensation from the Bronx in New York. A singer and song writer specializing in bachata, latino, and R & B.
