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 13th June 2022 for the 71st Festival Internacional de Música y Danza. Confirmed early March 2022. Although the festival is 71 years old, the origin of this annual event actually dates back to 1883. The first concerts were held at Carlos V Palace during the Corpus Christi festivities. This was the true beginning of FEX Granada.

The festival lasts for 4 weeks right up until 10th July 2022. With artists, musicians and dancers coming from around the world to perform, this magical event takes place within the grounds of the Alhambra palace.
