Loyal to its annual appointment, the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Arts (CAAC) offers a wide outdoors summer concerts programme from the end of June until the beginning of September.
The courtyards and outdoors areas of the former Monastery of the Cartuja are the settings, where the POP CAAC cycle takes place. You can enjoy two outdoors concerts under the stars each week in this quiet part of the city.
The most significant Spanish music trends as well as surprising international artists are part of the musical proposal of POP CAAC. This basis of this cycle is the independent music, with incursions into rock, music of the world, jazz and flamenco.
The Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Arts has been developing music festivals and programmes since 2005, specially during the summer.
The Monastery of the Cartuja was the Royal Pavilion in the Universal Exhibition of 1992 due to its important historic meaning. Christopher Columbus stayed there on several occasions and after his death, his remains rested there for a while. Nowadays the former monastery hosts the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Arts, where many cultural and leisure activities take place.
