All White On The Night in Teguise

The popular Noche Blanca event celebrates its fifth anniversary in Teguise this coming Friday, July 3rd, promising an eclectic mix of live music and exhibitions in the picturesque plazas and streets of the former island capital.

The White Night concept first took off St Petersburg, Russia mnay years ago to mark the summer solstice and accompanying late sunset, where twilight essentially lasts all night at that time of year and has since spread across the globe, becoming synonymous with mid-summer, all night arts festivals.

Teguise first got in on the act back in 2010 and this annual event now attracts thousands of late night revelers, the vast bulk of whom get into the spirit by also wearing white clothing.

This year’s event will run from 16.00 through until 04.00 and features a wide raft of attractions with highlights including live music in the Plaza de los Leones from the Jazz White Trio at 21.00, who will be performing their own interpretations of jazz, funk and blues classics and an exhibition of erotic photos in the patio area of the Casa Museo Timple.
