Article updated on December 20, 2023 – The music festival O Son do Camiño returns to O Monte do Gozo, in Santiago de Compostela, with renewed dates for 2024. The event is scheduled for May 30 and 31 and June 1, and promises to place Galicia on the European music scene.
Backed financially by the Xunta de Galicia and Xacobeo, the event has sold out all its season tickets for this occasion, demonstrating the growing popularity it has acquired in recent years. In 2023, it attracted a staggering 132,000 people during the three-day festival, with 43% coming from outside Galicia and with visitors originating from 40 different countries.
The line-up for this new edition promises to be exceptional, offering an eclectic mix of genres and styles to suit everyone’s taste. Topping the bill is the iconic rock band Green Day, who will kick off their European tour in Santiago de Compostela with the first of two concerts throughout Spain. Also joining the lineup are such well-known industry names as Thirty Seconds To Mars, Hot Milk and The Interrupters.
Although rock has a prominent role, O Son do Camiño is not limited to a single genre, ranging from urban Latin and reggaeton, with artists like J Balvin, to pop and indie represented by La Oreja de Van Gogh, Ana Mena, Melendi, Love of Lesbian, Tom Odell or Pet Shop Boys. Rap lovers will also be satisfied with confirmations such as Rels B and Natos y Waor.
A novelty in this edition is the greater presence of electronic music artists compared to previous years. Names such as Tiga, Trym, Patrick Mason and Karras Martínez will add rhythm to the third stage of the event, expanding the musical diversity in O Monte do Gozo.
The lineup is completed with bets on the Galician scene as Baiuca, Monolious DOP and Maryland.
O Son do Camiño has evolved to become one of the most important musical events in Galicia and a key driver for tourism in Santiago. In 2023, it contributed to the economic impact of the city, with 100% hotel occupancy in Compostela and its surroundings.
This festival saw the light of day in 2018 with the aim of turning Galicia into an annual music capital in Europe, is promoted by Esmerarte Industrias Creativas and Bring The Noise, and counts Estrella Galicia as its main sponsor.
