In two weeks Madrid will launch FITUR IS MUSIC, a new cultural event that was created within the framework of FITUR FESTIVALS, a monographic section of the International Tourism Fair.
This is the first time that IFEMA-FITUR has its own musical production, thanks to two further organisers: Planet Events and Disorder, and with the media support by Radio 3 and Mondo Sonoro. It will be held on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 January, in Hall 1 at Feria de Madrid.
Focusing mainly on urban and alternative music, it is an egalitarian festival, with a logical artistic balance (nine artists or bands led by men and seven by women).

Among the various activities, APM has prepared four Round Tables that will discuss the challenges and opportunities of Festival tourism.
