Entertainment in true Spanish style
Alicante has a full calendar of fiestas throughout the year. The fiesta season begins with Alicante Carnival in February, but the most popular fiesta is Les Fogueres de Sant Joan, when the streets of Alicante are invaded by giant wooden and papier mache effigies. If you like music, there’s a popular jazz festival in August, and most of the clubs in Alicante feature live bands performing everything from salsa and jazz to rock and flamenco. You can also see cultural festivals, concerts, dance and opera at Alicante’s Teatro Principal.
