From July 24 to 31, 2021

The “Musica Abierta” Guitarists Association launches the “Ciutat d’Elx” Guitar Festival one more year with the idea of ​​bringing guitar music to as many people as possible.


Every night we have a concert by an artist or group invited to our festival. Sometimes they are winners of our festival competition or from other festival competitions with which we collaborate. Other times, it is our teachers who demonstrate their immense artistic quality. In our Festival every night is magical thanks to the guitar and the Masters who play it.

Courses, conferences and workshops

In parallel, the XXIII “Ciutat d’Elx” Guitar Festival organizes specialized courses taught by prestigious professors at the CEU Cardenal Herrera de Elx University.


During the “Ciutat d’Elx” Guitar Festival, three guitar interpretation competitions will be held:
The Calendura Competition in which solo guitarists who do not exceed 20 years of age can participate.

The Ciutat d’Elx Competition for solo guitarists with no age limit.

The Chamber Music Competition with Guitar in which all duos, trios or quartets that include guitar may participate, except for piano formations and without age limits.
