Over the weeks, the varied music styles will range from blues and jazz to classical, flamenco and fusion through to pop and funk. Each individual, group or band will play in one of the designated areas as you soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the music of your choice. The locations include Carrer ses Moreres, Plaça Bastión, Plaça Espanya, Claustre del Carme, Plaça Constitució, Plaça Colón, Plaça Esplanada and Sa Ravaleta. Some shops will also remain open beyond their usual hours for a little retail therapy to add to the evening holiday mood.
Then, on Thursday evenings, for the first time the music and entertainment moves to the port where a fantastic schedule of musicians and groups are lined up over the coming weeks. Starting on Thursday 20 June 2013, the acts will perform at various locations along the harbour between 20.30 and 23.00 hours when a section of the road will be closed. This will alternate each week, the first week’s entertainment taking place between Costa de ses Voltes and Costa d’en Reynés and the following week being between Costa d’en Reynés and Costa de Corea.
The initiative follows on from the failed test to close a section of the Moll de Llevant last summer and is a collaboration between the Town Council, Port Authority and local businesses. The music and production is being organised by Menorca Musics. Based on the successful Nits al Carrer in the town on Tuesdays, the objective is to bring a lively,cosmopolitan atmosphere to the harbour on a set evening, enabling people to walk freely along the pedestrianised area between the bars, restaurants and shops and highlighting the port as a commercial tourist attraction that should not be missed. It is anticipated that there will be almost 80 musical performances during the eleven week period which runs up until Thursday 29 August 2013.
To help you plan your evening, details about the different acts performing each week, will be posted on the Menorca-Live Facebook page as well as on the Maó Council MôVida, Nits De Musica Al Carrer and Nits Al Port de Mo Facebook pages, click the links to access.
