Fiestas de 2 Mayo
27 April  -5 May  

As always, Madrid kicks off May with its annual “Fiestas del 2 de Mayo”, a time to commemorate the past with celebrations throughout the entire Comunidad. Lasting for nine days (27 April-5 May), the festival celebrates everything from dance, music and food to history and folk culture. Regardless of your age or interests, there is something for everyone: check out a Flamenco show, see a concert, or visit a museum or heritage site. If you happen to be in the city for the first two days of May, check out “Cine Fantastico: Maraton de Cine” at Circulo de Bellas Artes. The famous arts centre is hosting a two day marathon of directorial sci-fi/extraordinary classics such as Franklin J Schaffner’s “The Planet of the Apes”, Robert Wise’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet”, in original versions, with tickets priced at only €4.

Fiestas de 2 Mayo, various locations, 27 April-5 May. See website for full details.
