This annual noteworthy event brings together the most talented vocalists in Spain for the competition. During the contest days, representatives of city authorities and the media attend the performances. It is a unique opportunity to search for sponsors who can support young talents on the international stage of creativity.

A vocal masterclass program is provided for leaders. Participants are given the opportunity to visit excursions, intellectual games, and discos during their free time.

⚠️ We give our priority to learning and sharing experiences. At this contest a big attention is paid to the educational program. The event includes master classes, workshops, rehearsals of joint numbers with foreign specialists with world names, whom we invite to upgrade the skills of the contestants and additional qualification of teachers. Teachers who have completed the master classes receive a certificate on a stamped paper of the Kingdom of Spain with individual numbers.

Based on the results of the vocal contest, laureates of three degrees and winners of the Grand Prix, diploma holders, and festival participants are determined by an international jury of vocalists. The vocal festival-contest in Spain is a celebration of song and voice, and a huge honor to showcase oneself at a high level. Each vocalist participant in the Voices of Costa Brava festival competition receives prizes and diplomas from the founders and organizers of the festival.

Lloret de Mar is located in the southern part of the Costa Brava, approximately 70 km northeast of Barcelona. It os one of the most popular resorts in the Mediterranean and the liveliest destination on this stretch of the Spanish coastline. The village, once a fishing community, covers an area of 48 square kilometers and boasts five main beaches along seven kilometers of coastline.

Visitors can reach Barcelona and its airport, El Prat, by train with connections to other destinations. Girona airport, which is just a 35-minute drive away, serves the local area. The beaches of Lloret are well-maintained and have crystal clear waters. Divers can explore the interesting areas around the rocky headlands. The main beach has a pleasant promenade with beautiful views and many excellent bars and restaurants.

Lloret has excellent tourist infrastructure with sports facilities, shopping, leisure activities and restaurants available for tourists. The safe and sandy beaches, which enjoy warm temperatures during the summer months are ideal for beach lovers. In addition, Europe’s largest water park, an aquatic zoo, and the Universal Studios Port Aventura theme park are all easily accessible.
