The most moving event of the festival is a never to be repeated show.  Some of the best artists of the flamenco panorama, friends of the late Miguel Candela, will come together to evoke his memory.  The Bar Candela was the most flamenco in Madrid, a point of encounter for newcomers and professionals.

Madrid will receive 27 shows at 10 venues: Barco, Cardamomo, Casa Patas, Clamores, Contraclub, El Juglar, La Boca del Lobo, Las Tablas, Rincón del Arte Nuevo and Zanzíbar.  Most of the shows in the capital will take place at the Teatros del Canal de la Comunidad de Madrid, el Häagen-Dazs Calderón, el Lara, el Teatro del Institut Français and the Olivar de Castillejo.

From May 18th to 25th the Teatros del Canal will receive Vicente Amigo, Diego Amador, Mie Matsumura, Leonor Leal, Rafael Campallo, Manuela Carrasco, Aurora Vargas, Pansequito, Rocío Molina and Mayte Martín.

At the Teatro Häagen-Dazs Calderón, May 12th to June 16th, Juan de Juan, La Barbería del Sur, Miguel Poveda, María Juncal and pianist Dorantes with Pastora Galván and Joaquín Grilo are scheduled.
