At this time of the year, the City Council of Palma organizes a program of events in which citizens and visitors can enjoy street parties, bonfires, concerts, the famous “correfocs” and many other activities.
The most famous acts of the festival of San Sebastian are the concerts taking place in several parts of the city the night of January 19th, the San Sebastian eve. Many artists will perform on different stages: Plaza España, Plaza Mayor, Plaza Joan Carles I, Plaza Cort, Plaza de la Reina, Plaza del Olivar, Plaza de Santo Domingo y Plaza de la Lonja. In addition, on January 20th another concert will be held at Plaza España, with Celtas Cortos and La Guardia.

This year, the Palma City Council has not included in the program the San Sebastian Mass, celebrated every year in the Palma’s Cathedral, in order not to include religious acts.
