A sea of music bands
Vigo’s traditional music bands are an institution. Vigo really loves music! We have a dozen bands brought together in the Popular Music Band Federation of Vigo, an annual Christmas event attended by Galicia bands and countless traditional orchestras from all over the city.
Vigo’s music bands have a clear common denominator, their neighbourhood or parish. Their cultural and social centres are the ones who promote and maintain the bands:
AGRUPACIÓN MUSICAL DA SCD. ATLÁNTIDA DE MATAMÁ
UNIÓN MUSICAL DE VALLADARES
BANDA ESCOLA DE MÚSICA DE BEADE
UNIÓN MUSICAL DE CORUXO
LIRA DE SAN MIGUEL DE OIA
UNIÓN MUSICAL DE CABRAL
ESCOLA DE MÚSICA DA UVCD DE CANDEÁN
ATENEO MUSICAL DE BEMBRIVE
AS DELICIAS DO CAEIRO
Check the programme for traditional music band concerts in Vigo.
On the Galician Federation of Popular Music Bands website, you can listen to some of these bands’ recordings and many others from other parts of Galicia... Although there's nothing like hearing them live in some of Vigo’s popular festivities!
