It is a free festival which was born more than thirty years ago and it is still alive nowadays. It takes place in September, at the same time with the Zaidin neighbourhood fair. We can say it is the most important and relevant music festival in Granada. Every year people of Granada and from other places are waiting for September to enjoy the Zaidin Rock Festival. In Granada it is common to say that summer does not finish until the Zaidin Rock Festival passes.
The festival lasts three days, every night there are concerts of different kinds of music. They used to be of one kind any day, for instance, on Thursdays you can see gigs of rock music, on Fridays the music style usually is punk rock or protest rock, and the last day, on Saturdays you can listen to roots music.
Several odd music stars have trodden the stage of this festival and it remains a lot of to come.
Apart from the music and concerts you can find craftworks and foodstuff as well. You have also a wide offer of spare time in Zaidin, which gives you the opportunity to be in contact with native people of Granada.
It is totally free, for you, for the neighbourhood, accessible and open to all ages.
When you come to Granada, get ready for the Zaidin Rock.
