Music takes centre stage in the cultural programme, thanks in no small part to the Municipal Band of Ribadeo and the Choral Society.
In the summer, many different musical performances take place on the streets, plazas, and other places in town.
Ribadeo also hosts a number of festivals:
- Festival Jazz Blues: In the last weeks of July. This festival presents some of the top national and international jazz performers, along with other activities such as exhibitions, conferences, round table discussions, film panels, and a record market.http://jazzbluesribadeo.com/
- Festival de Habaneras: In August. Organized by the Choral Society of Ribadeo. This association, along with at least other two from different towns participate in this music festival.
- Festival Folklórico: In August. Traditional music and dances from many countries are performed.
- Festival internacional de música clásica: In August. This yearly classical music festival presents performers from many countries. http://www.fimcr.com
The Músicas Posibéis series brings performances of genres such as hip hop, jazz, blues or fusion to our stages all throughout the year.
