Friends of Guinness, Xábega and Percutora and Finndogg Macrea are the groups that will perform on August 8th at the Celtic Night. This was announced by the Tourism Department on Wednesday, July 22nd. It will take place in the Miguel González Berral Auditorium starting at 21:30 hours and we will once again enjoy the traditional group of fi fteen pipers who will delight the public with their music, as well as the Mamen Garro group, which also repeats with its incredible choreography loaded with tradition. For another year, the Celtic Night returns to Mijas, this time, guaranteeing security measures in order to prevent possible contagions of coronavirus. “In order to respect the anti-COVID- 19 measures, the capacity has been reduced by half; in this way the seats will have a separation of 1.5 metres between attendees, at the access to the venue there will be temperature control on the public, it will be mandatory to access with a mask and the public toilets will be cleaned continuously”, assured the councillor for Tourism, José Carlos Martín (C’s). “The groups, all based in Andalusia, stand out for their musical quality, as is the case of Friends of Guinness”, commented music producer Martin Wood, adding that “another group that will play is Xábega and Percutora, which will delight us with a performance with different instruments to the rhythm of folk music”. One of the great musical moments of the night will the performance by Finndogg Macrea, who through his music will transport attendees to traditional Irish bars. On the other hand, the Tourism Council has assured that they will continue promoting the organisation of all the events possible in order to attract the maximum number of tourists. “The Blues Night was a total success and now we are counting on the Celtic Night, which will surely be a success, without forgetting that during the week we also offer different activities for the whole family such as the Tapa Route and the street markets”, explained Luisa Machen from the Mijas Tourist Offi ce. Admission is free until full capacity is reached and invitations must be collected at the Tourist Offi ce, a measure in place to ensure that the capacity is complied with.
