In Aranda de Duero you always get wet. During the Sonorama Ribera, the most insightful thing is to get a gun that expels nothing but water, under pressure, and thus form a kind of peaceful fight (one of the few times that these words can be put together), in which everyone attending the The streets adjacent to the Plaza del Trigo end up wet, whether from sweat, from dancing, or from water, from shooting. Suckling lamb, sun, constant music and good wine. Four essentials for a great plan, and that we only find intermixed and in their maximum splendor in the Sonorama Ribera. It is already one of the fundamental indie and rock festivals in Spanish in our country, and the preview of the new poster is heating up the engines. Today the first batch (of three) of artists who will perform at the 27th edition of Sonorama Ribera has been announced, in some underground wineries in Aranda while it was raining and, of course, you got wet. Among the artists confirmed to date, they lead Natos y Waor, Polish Girl, Maikel Delacalle, Sexy Zebras, Macaco, Varry Brava, Veintiuno, Rozalén, Molotov, Shinova or Sidecars. Alba Reche, Álvaro de Luna, Funzo & Baby Loud, Juancho Marqués, La Cámara Roja, Rayden, Venturi, Tu Otra Bonita, Shego, Mikel Izal and Carlangas will also perform.
Javier Ajenjo, director and founder of Sonorama, explains that "we live in a time where everything is mixed up, festivals seem to have to be some more than others. We pay immense amounts for international artists, and We take little care of the nationals, who are the ones who sell tickets. Emerging bands also deserve a chance. We don't forget that at Sonorama. Therefore, there will continue to be announced artists. Before Christmas there are going to be one or two big gifts."
All that remains, therefore, is to listen to these artists while the next edition of the festival arrives, which will take place on August 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 (the last day the programming is morning and free). Expectations are high, taking into account the event held last summer, in which 150,000 people gathered. Every day, thousands of attendees were part of an audience that witnessed disparate genres, led by rock and Spanish pop, and concerts that were as unique as they were, at the same time, guarantees of unforgettable experiences.
