The Compostela festivities par excellence will start next Tuesday 16th May and will last until Sunday 21st, with a programme full of concerts and musical performances for all tastes, workshops, circus, magic... without forgetting the more traditional side with events such as the Comparsa de Cabezudos, the Torneo de Chave or the Cantos de Taberna (Tavern Songs). The Panorama Orchestra, Ana Moura or Ortiga and Pili Pampín are some of the outstanding performances as well as the 40's concert and the Composfest that will bring local artists such as Carlangas or Ruxe Ruxe. The Recinto Feiral de Amio will host the Festival of the Elderly on Saturday 20th, and the popular Horse Fair on Ascension Thursday.
