Corralejo Blues Festival is now a consolidated event, unique in its genre within the cultural scene of Fuerteventura.
The organizer of the event is the Department of Culture of Ayuntamiento of La Oliva, who has announced a mix of Spanish and international artists from all over the globe. The Council of La Oliva is also working along with other authorities in Fuerteventura like the Ministry of Culture of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura and the Government of the Canary Islands (Gobierno de Canarias) in order to ensure the success of the event.
