The San Sebastián Semana Grande [Big Week] 2017

Music at Semana Grande

Eight free concerts on the esplanade in Sagüés featuring different types of music will light up the nights during Semana Grande. La Oreja de Van Gogh will kick off the concerts on Saturday the 12th at 11:45 PM.

Firewoks competition

Fireworks fans will marvel at the International Fireworks Competition of San Sebastian, the longest running competition of its kind in Europe. Seven pyrotechnics companies, five Spanish and two from abroad, will compete this year for the Concha de Oro (Golden Shell award). And on Saturday 19 August, RICASA, a pyrotechnics company from Valencia, will light up the skies with a pyro-musical (not in competition).
