Just before the summer break, we are more than happy to announce MCN's new member City: Valencia, officially joining the Music Cities Network!
In Valencia, music is an ever-present part of life in the city, noticeable for example by the musical marching through the streets at times of celebration. Valencia’s innate creativity, which can be seen in renowned international festivals like Las Fallas can also be found in the music of countless artists and groups who have become famous over the years, as well as in the emerging talent that continues to fill the city’s music halls and independent venues. And the best contemporary artists fill a calendar of concerts and festivals that covers all musical styles, from opera, classical and Jazz to Rock, Pop, Folk, Hip Hop and Electronic. Countless musical beats can be heard non-stop in Valencia. Learn more about Valencia Music City here.
We are thrilled to welcome Valencia as the newest member of the Music Cities Network! The city's rich musical heritage and vibrant contemporary scene make it a perfect addition to our community. Join us in celebrating Valencia's passion for music and its creative energy, as we continue to foster transnational exchange and collaboration within the music industry and urban development. 🎶
And the pleasure is not only ours: "We believe València's membership of the Music Cities Network is essential for the city's cultural and economic development. It elevates its status as a music destination, fosters collaboration with other cities, and attracts visitors who share a passion for music. Joining MCN presents an exceptional chance to work together, share insights, and inspire innovation that will have a positive impact on València's music culture, economy and community.”
