DJ AMABLE

One of the legends of national indie and electronic music. With his sessions he has created a school, created a style and created thousands of stories. A consecrated DJ that brings Phe the latest in alternative rock-pop and an irresistible desire to dance.

CARIÑO

Guitar, bass and voice pay tribute to the simplicity of pop language. Honey is one of the revelations of the last year with danceable rhythms and bright lyrics. Songs to cope with the low moments or to get more into them. Love and cynicism come together in perfect harmony.

EL EXTRANJERO

On Saturday

WE ARE SCIENTIST

The exuberant rock of this New York band stands out for the dance rhythms and puts more international accent on Phe 2019. After fifteen years making catchy songs between electronic drums and analog synthesizers, Americans plunge us into the most synthetic and current indie.

CAROLINA DURANTE

This band likes to make noise. Carolina Durante has become a trend and leader of a new generation. Rock, pop or punk with casual and fun lyrics, but always with a sound of their own.

ANGEL STANICH

Characterized by his strange voice, beard and hirsute hair, he has become one of the essential names of the national festival circuit. His music is dotted with surreal ingenuity, irony and a sound free of bonds that make it unclassifiable.

DELAPORTE

Already known by the public from Tenerife, Delaporte will be in Phe to offer us a whole scenic experience. They combine their melodies through a mosaic of loops, rhythms, elaborate effects on the spot, tracks, improvised synthesizer sounds and surprising voices.

MUEVELOREINA

Mueveloreina takes advantage of the best of Latin and electronic rhythms to build a more personal style that they call electrical. With this duo formed by Karma Cereza and Joaco J Fox we will enjoy acidic, ideological, aesthetic and catchy songs.

SERIAL KILLERZ

Serial Killerz is one of those unusual proposals, a perfect tandem between live dj and drums where AC / DC, Ramones or Nina Simone themes intermingle. Songs mixed with adrenaline, semi-controlled madness and attitude.

GAF Y LA ESTRELLA DE LA MUERTE

Avant rock, experimental jazz, krautrock, psychedelic folk … there are various labels that have been given to GAF, one of the most experimental bands of the Canarian scene. They arrive at Phe with an energetic, dark sound and closer to the no wave than ever.

NOT A NUMBER

Alternative rock with nuances of avant-garde rock and experimental rock is the style of Not a Number. They will take us to the themes of ‘Insides’, their first album with which they have discovered their own sound.

WE ARE TRASH

Innovation  + Culture

Innovation and culture are at the very heart of Phe Festival’s idea. Open dialogue on social innovation will take place, so you will be able to learn from others and share your opinion.

Puerto de la Cruz has a tourist tradition that dates back centuries, practically since the birth of this activity. The city was visited due to its privileged climate and the scenic beauty that characterize it.

The main economic activity of the municipality is, in fact, conventional mass tourism, a model that sooner or later runs out and requires new formulas to survive. The offer of “sun and beach” is no longer enough for the current traveler and the city needs different options.

In this process of change, Puerto de la Cruz has chosen to highlight the cultural symbolism of the city. This is known asCultural Events Tourism. These events are considered vital to the development of a town by promoting the local identity and culture. These events are designed by the city or town and the locals participate in the planning and running of the event.

The skeleton that structures this process is made up of projects such as Mueca, Periplo or Phe himself, in which the sustainability, experience and participation of tourists as a temporary inhabitant of the city play a fundamental part.

SPORTS

One of the beautiful aspects of Puerto de la Cruz is the stunning natural surroundings. The Phe Festival can include sports for those who are interested.. They are currently preparing a list of sports activities which will be featured during the festival week.

PHE CAMPING

If you are a lover of the outdoors, Phe Festival will offer you the opportunity to camp outside. Why go for hotels and hostels when you can enjoy long nights of music and fun with other partygoers?

Get your ticket
