Port America, in Caldas de Reis (Pontevedra)

This year, the most indie festival of the Rías Baixas changes location and moves its seventh edition to Caldas de Reis, where you can enjoy the shadow of a centenary carballeira and areas for bathing, because it will be held at the foot of the river. And if you still have the strength, you'll find hiking trails that run through beautiful waterfalls and secret pools.

Música, naturaleza y gastronomía. ¡Maravilla!

The poster, which can be enjoyed from July 5 to 7, will bring together the best national and international independent music artists of the moment, ranging from the most melodic pop to pure guitar rock, punk or electro sound: Imelda May, La Sticker, Vetusta Morla, Jenny and the Mexicats, The Red Room or We The Lion.

But Port America is also a Michelin-star and gastronomic event, which will host, among other activities, a Repsol Guide ShowRocking, curated by the famous chef Pepe Solla . You should not miss it, go to its website and buy your ticket.

International Festival of the Celtic World of Ortigueira (A Coruña)

If Galicia is the queen of the festivals, the Ortigueira Festival, with 40 years of history, is the king of festivals. If you've ever been, this is the time to return and remember those wonderful years of adolescence and if not, your time has come.

What a desire for summer and Festival! Praia dos Morouzos is looking forward to seeing you !! A shared publication of Festival De Ortigueira (@festivaldeortigueira) on May 25, 2017 at 1:19 p.m.

During a weekend you will enjoy the beach, the mountain and the best of folk music and Celtic culture . It will be held from July 12 to 15 and among the most prominent artists are the Galicians Milladoiro, the Scots Imar and the Canadians Yves Lambert Project.

In addition, from the camping area, the Piñeiral de Morouzos, just over 3 kilometers from the center and with a beach next to it, buses leave to the center of Ortigueira from 12:00 noon until dawn.

SinSal Son Estrella Galicia, on the island of San Simón (Pontevedra)

Its great attraction is the idyllic natural enclave where it is celebrated, the island of San Simón, in the Vigo estuary . And the limited sale of tickets will make you feel in paradise while vibrating with the best music.

This year SinSal Son Estrella Galicia will be held from July 26 to 29. Only one thing, when making the purchase of your tickets you will have to choose port: Vigo or Meirande (Redondela), from which you will leave and to which you will return by boat once the day is over.

This festival is very unconventional when it comes to confirming their bands and stages. Therefore, if you decide on this fantastic proposal, you will not know what groups you will see until you disembark on the island. But that is one of its biggest attractions.

Castelo Rock, in Muros (A Coruña)

It is the cheapest options and also has natural wonders very close to camping. Because mount, beach and music is what you will find if you travel to the Castelo Rock de Muros the first weekend of August.

It is a good plan if in addition to listening to good music, you want to make festive tourism, organizing excursions through the great landscapes of the surroundings such as the route of Mount Louro . From there you can contemplate the panoramic view of the Ría Muros-Noia.

SonRías Baixas, in Bueu (Pontevedra)

The Castelo Rock was a very tough competition because SonRías Baixas, the festival that will host Bueu from August 2 to 5, stomps this summer with headliners such as Talco, La Raíz, Gatillazo or Muchachito, with varied styles of music for Almost every taste.

From Ría to Ría and pull because it's your turn to go to Bueu, in the Pontevedra estuary, which borders the tiny Aldán estuary where you can visit amazing villages, harbors and some of the best beaches in Galicia . A paradise to discover.

Northwest Estrella Galicia Festival in the city of A Coruña

This Corunna musical event has become one of the unavoidable summer in Galicia. More than 100 free performances will tour the entire city from August 7 to 12 with the most diverse musical styles: pop, rock, indie, avant-garde, folk, fusion, hip hop or punk.

The best thing about the Northwest Festival is, without a doubt, taking a dip, between concert and concert, on the Orzán beach and, of course, its selective poster, which stands out for artists such as Neneh Cherry, Maria del Mar Bonet, James Holden & The Animal Spirits, Christina Rosenvinge, The Limboos or Laetitia Sadier.
