International Blues Festival 2010 – Corralejo, Fuerteventura

_MG_3707

Spirit of Fuerteventura would like to thank all the people who made this event possible. It was a marvellous experience to enjoy the Blues and to see people from all over the world being united by the only common language: emotions. Music is a universal way to communicate these emotions and therefore should be supported with high priority. Fuerteventura can become an island that is renowned as a place where music can thrive and where people are welcome to enjoy a peaceful time. Now that the stage is empty and that we go back to our daily life, we all could think about how to enlarge the profile of this island. For those who’d like to put some energy into this thought, please send your ideas to our contact address and we will make time to evaluate your suggestions and distribute them through our website. Thank you in advance for your help.

In the meantime, please enjoy the pictures from our "Picture Gallery", to the left by klicking on "Blues Festival". May they be a warm remembrance to beautiful moments and an invitation to join the next festival. All pictures (c) Spirit of Fuerteventura, unless stated otherwise.

We wish you all the best.
