Portal Blau

The Portalblau Festival was born in summer 2008 in the village of L’Escala. Throughout all its editions, it has offered a wide range of high-quality cultural proposals and has counted with the participation of artists from all over the world. Music, dance, theater, and days of debate and reflection have been part of the festival's program since the beginning.

La Mar d'en Manassa and the Roman Forum of Empúries will be the stages that will host the 2020 edition of the Portalblau Festival. Scenarios of great historical and landscape richness.

The cultural program that we present, with a smaller format due to the current situation, maintains the conceptual axis that characterizes the Festival: the promotion of the values of the culture in the Mediterranean.

Programme

'Bàrbars' show with Jordina Biosca and David Garcia

Sold Out

Barbarities elevated to the umpteenth power. When the contents go straight to the soul and in return they pinch the mind. When the subtle tone of a verse unleashes storms and drowns the senses, everything that happens written in ink becomes one's own flesh, a mirror of oneself. Recited, narrated. Sense.

GEMMA HUMET – “Petit Univers”

Sold Out

Gemma Humet is one of the voices with the most light and personality on the current Catalan scene. One of the artists who has most clearly permeated her work with the essence of the author's song. Her new album will be released in 2021 and will have a renewed sound that mixes the rhythm box and the synthesizers with the melodies of Mediterranean airs and the warm voice of Gemma.

Winner of the last edition of the Sona 9 competition, she is currently preparing her first album.
