THE LLUNA DE JUNY POETRY FESTIVAL IS BACK, WHICH WILL CELEBRATE ITS 29TH EDITION, FROM SEPTEMBER 29 TO OCTOBER 3
The return of the Lluna de Juny Poetry Festival has been waiting because of the pandemic but this year, the veteran event that brings together music and poetry will return to different places on the island of Eivissa. The 29th edition of the festival, directed by Carlos Fabregat and Joan Murenu, will be held between September 29 and October 3, mainly in the city of Eivissa. This represents one more day of programming compared to the previous edition, that of 2019. On this occasion, the festival’s borders are once again being expanded and poets who come from beyond the Balearic Islands will participate, both from other parts of the state and abroad.
This new edition has made its two verses by Damià Huguet and Miquel Ángel Riera that, together, make up the title: ‘Juego de Espejos/Cumbre del imprevisto’, with the aim of highlighting the figure of these two excellent and unique Mallorcan poets. In an event organized jointly with the “Islands and Literature” cycle of the Ibiza City Council, the actor Pep Tosar will recite poems by these two authors, accompanied on guitar by Juan Arto.
This will not be the only tribute that the festival pays this year. There will also be an act in honor of the poet-priest Josep Planells, in front of the church of Sant Rafel, and a dialogue between poets will bring us closer to the figure of Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer. Throughout the entire program, music, poetry, and audiovisual arts will be combined until the edition is completed with a conversation about the symbolism in the poetry of Toni Roca by Rosa Rodríguez and Ángeles Escandell.
All festival activities are free and no prior reservation is required. Both the closed spaces and the outdoor spaces must use a mandatory mask and the public will have hydroalcoholic gel. At all times the security measures in force and appropriate to each space will be respected. The festival has the support of the Government of the Balearic Islands and the Institute of Balearic Studies, the Consell d’Eivissa, and the City Council of Ibiza, to which the organizers want to thank their essential contribution to make possible a new edition of the Poetry Festival of the Lluna de Juny.
The festival has launched three social media profiles so that all the public can be informed about any last-minute changes: @poesiallunajuny (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
