The Dance festival is every Summer at the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. The FEX International Music and Dance festival is a prestigious summer event. Well known in Spain and further afield. As soon as the tickets go on sale they tend to sell out quickly.

The curtain goes up on 17th June 2021 for the 70th Festival Internacional de Música y Danza. Confirmed on 22nd April 2021. Although the festival is 70 years old, the origin of this annual event actually dates back to 1883. Concerts were held at Carlos V palace each summer during the Corpus Christi festivities. This was really the beginning of FEX Granada.

The festival lasts for 4 weeks right up until 18th July 2021. With artists, musicians and dancers coming from around the world to perform, this magical event takes place within the grounds of the Alhambra palace.
