On 2 March the Night of the Plants festival presented its plans for the summer of 2022.
This has led Laura Martí, one of the festival’s directors, and Isabel García Fernandez, Associate Director of Arts Promotion at the University of Complutense, to consider it “one of the most important cultural events in Madrid”, and as such has been held for six editions. The Vice-Rector recalls that it is “one of the most representative green areas of our University, a place to meet and stroll. A magnificent and magical setting”.
After the limitations of 2021, this year’s festival intends to grow further, with the addition of a further 3,000 square metres of space in the University of Complutense’s Botanical Gardens.
Julio Martí, the other co-director of “A Night in the Botanical Gardens”, is responsible for breaking down part of the programme, which this year will feature 78 artists from 24 different countries, starting with a concert by Fangoria y Nancys Rubias and ending with Diana Krall. In between, there will be some great events such as the presentation of Smile, a new show by several members of Radiohead; the return of Tom Jones; Emir Kusturica’s farewell to the stage, and a concert by Patti Smith.
For those interested in attending any of the ‘Night at the Botanic Gardens’ concerts, tickets will go on sale at 12 noon on Monday 7 March: https://www.nochesdelbotanico.com/entradas-artistas
