Azkena Rock Festival is back another year with the highly anticipated and by now traditional program of free concerts at the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca, yet another way for ARF to share its passion for music. Heading to the heart of the city, its mission is to liven up the mornings of the festival, held on the 16th, 17th and 18th of June in Vitoria-Gasteiz. On Friday and Saturday, hours before the doors of the Mendizabala festival ground open, the party will get underway at the Virgen Blanca with a concert kicking off at 1:30 PM.
CONCERTS VIRGEN BLANCA 2022
Alexis Evans can proudly say that he has spent a lifetime dedicated to music. While still a youth, he participated in the International Blues Challenge leading Jumpin’ at The Westside, and it wasn’t until 2016 when he made his solo debut with the energetic blues of “Girl Bait”. In 2019 he released “I’ve Come a Long Way” a collection of eleven soul tracks in the purest Stax fashion. With his marked retro style, Alexis Evans will manage to teleport us back in time during his performance at the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca.
THEO LAWRENCE AND THE POSSUMS
On Saturday, Kim Lenz’s concert will be cancelled due to illness and in his place will be the great Theo Lawrence and The Possums, one of the great European exponents of rockabilly, country and R&B accompanied by his band. The young French-Canadian singer-songwriter, who debuted in 2018 with “Homemade Lemonade”, will bring to the Virgen Blanca a concert that promises to be a celebration.
