Mallorca, 6 June 2022
Port Adriano inaugurated the summer season with one of its flagship events, the Aftersun Festival, that is now in its sixth edition and which has been a great success in its first weekend.
This event, in continuous evolution and growth, has brought several new features this year: the first is that all the containers are masterfully intervened by 20 urban artists who participated in an open call and were selected by an art expert jury. On the other hand, street food caravans have been incorporated, expanding the offer with a restaurant area.
On the first day we were lucky enough to have the presence of Suso 33, a nationally renowned artist who has collaborated with this initiative and has his own mural inside the Aftersun. On the other hand, we also had live music by Christina Jones with Sara de Blas, courtesy of I am Music Lover, as well as tastings of Sangría Rita Mediterránea, on a terrace set up for the occasion.
We also had a guided tour of the selected works by Street Art Mallorca, who, thanks to Daniel, was able to tell us about each of the murals on display in the port. These murals are an open-air exhibition and can be visited free of charge 24 hours a day.
Aftersun is a market with fashion, beauty and decoration proposals, mostly from the Balearic Islands and local commerce, and with a strong commitment to sustainability, as many participating brands have in their concept the environmental component.
In this sense, the Cleanwave Foundation has a container where there will be information about their work as well as children’s activities on Saturdays. The Ajuntament de Calvià also has its own container to inform about Calviá and to do workshops for children. These were full throughout the weekend, as the Aftersun Festival is a perfect place to go as a family. Don’t forget that this year, in addition to art, music and local development, we have also opened a food court with street food to enjoy the gastronomy while an excellent soundtrack plays in the background.
The participating shops will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in June, from 18:00h to 22:00h until 19 June.

This is the third time that urban artists have decorated the sea containers. On this occasion, there have been artists who have come from all over Spain to make their interventions in Calvià, whose Town Hall has actively collaborated with the call. We remind you that an open competition was held to choose the artists and more than 40 proposals were received. The selected artists are:
Marcos Pérez, Sota Pérez, Pablo Pelluz, Drili, Oriol Angrill, Carolina Adán, Grasi, Luis Curti, Belén Pez, Set de belleza, Martz, Gràcia Ribalaiga, Mina Ivy, ASCO, Juan Ramón Alomar, Verni, Trossort, Teresa Ponseti/Victoria Román, Federica Furbelli and we have as guest artist a national reference in urban art: Suso33.
The distribution of the containers is conceived to take a walk among the murals intervened under a spectacular decoration.Top
