The Galician festival will once again resonate throughout the national scene from the Galician Azucreira de Portas venue from 4 to 6 July. The festival will bring together more than thirty artists and an exclusive line-up of 30 haute cuisine chefs, with a total of eighteen Michelin Stars and four Green Stars.

PortAmérica will be consolidated in this twelfth edition with the largest ephemeral kitchen in the world by the hand of Cervezas 1906, promoting this vibrant connection between gastronomy and music, which will also deploy spaces in which to enjoy different experiences around beer culture.

1906 will once again showcase its close ties with the culinary arts, as it has demonstrated since its origins, through direct support for chefs such as Diego Guerrero and Ángel León, as well as the creation of initiatives such as ‘Imperfectxs’: an outreach project that seeks to share and disseminate good food practices.

Now, the beer brand for ‘an immense minority’ is expanding thanks to an organic collaboration with an indie-pop festival that will bring together national and Latin American stars of the calibre of Vetusta Morla, Aitana, Luz Casal, Juanes, Arde Bogotá, Xoel López, Toquinho, Standtill, Lila Downs, El Drogas and Lit Killah, among many others.

Beyond the concerts, the culinary revolution will come from the Galician chef Pepe Solla and his project based on music as an element of connection between cultures to reflect the spirit of the festival: the convergence of the Europe-America union.

Ephemeral cuisine surrounded by stars

Its innovative ‘ShowRocking‘ will have a 600-metre space dedicated to gastronomy in which the creations of more than 30 internationally renowned chefs will be served, such as Pepe Solla (Casa Solla, Poio), Diego Guerrero (DSTAgE, Madrid), Begoña Rodrigo (La Salita, Valencia), Catalina Vélez (Domingo de Vereda, Colombia), Javier Estévez (La Tasquería, Madrid), Javier Olleros (Culler de Pau, O Grove) and Maca de Castro (Maca de Castro, Alcudia). The sweet spot will be served by Pía Salazar (Nuema, Ecuador), Fátima Gismeno (Fática Gismeno, Guadalaraja) and Ana Garía together with Guille Moscoso (Pan da Moa, Santiago de Compostela).

All this high-end gastronomic proposal will be paired by the 1906 Beer family, which will set up its own brewery at the venue. In addition, one of the stars of the festival will be Miguel Molina, the winner of the last edition of Desafío XChef by Cervezas 1906.
